Queens NY based new wave/dream pop producer Glassio has shared his new single Nobody Stayed For The DJ. The track was inspired by the early 80s UK electro with bubbling synths and Glassio’s echoing vocals.
Glassio says a bit about his new single:
“I wanted to write a song about a DJ that has a micro-existential crisis during a set where they’re performing to absolutely nobody. I’ve definitely been there many times where I’ve DJ’ed or played live to an empty room and thought ‘what am I doing with my life?’ and know a lot of friends that can relate to that thought. As the song progresses, the protagonist remembers a life changing song by someone they love on their USB, and finds refuge in playing that song for the rest of night – leading to them remembering why they love doing what they do. That was the original gist of it all. It’s sort of half hilarious/half tragic in my mind. I also reference two of the artists that have saved me during DJ sets that weren’t going so well (Yazoo and Gino Soccio). This is also sort of a love song to them both.”
