“I Miss New York” is everything you’d want in a house track: Twinkling, glittering synths, funky basslines and guitar riffs, vocal samples about warm memories of the vibe, energy, and feel of New York in the Summer... and of course, a beat that’s danceable as heck.
Even though it’ll make you want to get up and move, there’s a nostalgic, lo-fi, laidback groove to this track that prevents it from being too in your face. It’s soothing and comforting, like the sun warming your skin as you sip drinks at a rooftop bar, overlooking the brilliance and movement of the city below.
Here’s what warner case had to say about New York, and why he chose it as inspiration for his latest track in collaboration with Jean Tonique:
New Yorkers are indefatigable, brilliant, and strange. You can get the best of any cuisine imaginable just a few blocks away. I came into my own as an adult, as an artist, as a person there, and I wouldn't be who I am without it. I've been gone from the city for almost a year now due to the pandemic, and I've grown to love it even more in my absence…
Until we can travel again, we've got this track to vicariously travel through.
