Air Balloons”  by Britney Stoney (produced by Eddie Logix)

This electro-pop track from Detroit’s Britney Stoney breaths deep, smiles wide, and dances with light and levity. It’s a daylight party thing.  Producer Eddie Logix puts down a snare-heavy beat that nods to ‘90s freestyle with a wink at the Ghost Town DJ’s  “My Boo.” Britney Stoney’s releases her latest EP “Native” on Sunday, June 7th at the Majestic Cafe, with Elenora and Ancient Language.  More info here.
