Yen Sung & Photonz - Still

  • An intergenerational Lisbon house affair.

  • The pairing of Yen Sung and Photonz is a welcome meeting of Portugese house past and present. Both Lisbon artists have made careers out of not just making music but also building community, particularly advocating for underrepresented populations. "Still" feels like a necessary celebration of that work, mixed with a large helping of ecstatic euphoria. The track checks all the right '90s boxes. Loved-up vocal sample? Sugary synth? Bongo line to round things out? Check, check, and check. But this doesn't make the song sound overly retro—rather, it's a wonderfully glossy paean to the timelessness of house music.
