Feeling This Friday: Johnny Ruiz & the Escapers – Stay

Today people, we have a record that we have been waiting for for a while. It’s the latest, “Stay” from Sin City’s Johnny Ruiz & the Escapers. Las Vegas’s own sextet that jumped on the scene in 2017 has been laying down their early Rocksteady and sweet soul sounds to the delights of dance floors and turntables all over the world. This latest gem brought to you by Mango Hill Records and Bang! Riddims (dig the logo too) is an excellent slice of sound and going to be hard to top we might add. This is exactly what the world needs right now. The sweet soul vocals of El Diamante crooning the bolero-balad and the Escapers providing that backing, late ‘60’s riddim for the flip side, too. Superb stylings all around on this forty five. Just to give you an indication on how people were reacting when this was announced, the pre-sale completely sold out in minutes. It’s that damn hot. Johhny Ruiz & the Escapers bring the listener back, back to when the music was pure. It’s something missing in a lot of the music of today: substance, feeling, emotion, and heartache. This track has heaps of it. Buy this record anyway you can, and if you have to wait for another pressing, so be it. This is one record you will say “I wish I had pulled the trigger on” if you miss out. We know good music when we hear it, and this record is just that. Check out the band performing this track below. This forty five is a Feeling This Friday top gun.
