Go-to dance producer Tyler Stone gave us a spellbinding House remix of Starita’s song Love & Pain – which was already super popular and even got Grammys recognition. Stone’s signature house is enlivened in this remix with organic percussion, an irresistible bass line and lush melodies.

Stone dropped a fun and smoothly energetic house gem that brings out the joyful and playful vibrations of the original as well as the incredible vocals of Trent Park.

The song is all about two improbable elements harmonically existing together, which forms the basis of all the journey. Love & Pain’ (Tyler Stone Remix), says Stone, is “equally at home on the dance floor as it is kicking back with a cocktail. A little pain, as it turns out, can lead to a lot of love.”

The vocals had so much space that I knew it wouldn’t feel rushed at a higher BPM,” explains Stone “The song felt lonely, and I wanted to stay true to that sentiment while still making it danceable.”

Starita said on his FB: “I’m excited to share my latest collaboration with Tyler Stone dropping a euphoric house-inspired dance remix of my original release, ‘Love & Pain,’ featuring the soulful vocals of Trent Park. Outside of her reputation as a trailblazing, female, chart topping dance producer, I know her as an amazing human being and talented creative. Tyler’s pull to take this originally downtempo, contemplative, peaceful track into an energetic and spirited uptempo space gave this such a fresh perspective. SUCH A VIBE! Enjoy!”
