Although rising producer Billy Lemos is currently based out of California, he definitely keeps a close eye on Chicago’s budding indie music scene as he’s locked in multiple collaborations with some of the city’s most promising new faces. This fact remains true on the young producer’s latest single, “Stuck”, which features vocals from Family Reunion’s Jackie Carlson. Lemos offers up his own rendition of “OMG”, the opener to Family Reunion’s stellar debut EP “J”, which dropped earlier this year. While maintaining the same laidback energy of the original song, Lemos’ barrage of punchy lo-fi percussion makes quite a big difference with seemingly small alterations. He turns the slow-burning ballad into a track that urges you to dance your cares away, echoing the yearning for an escape that Jackie writes about in her verses.
“Stuck” comes as the latest single from Billy Lemos’ forthcoming “AWKWARD” project. Check out his previous single, “RAIN” featuring Kopano, here.
