Diplo & Sleepy Tom: Be Right There

Sleepy Tom is Canada’s latest homegrown talent putting a unique stamp on modern day dance music. After the Vancouver-based producer dropped The Currency, his firecracker of a debut EP on Fool’s Gold, he became an in-demand remixer adding stomping club muscle to official releases for Diplo, Zeds Dead, Martin Solveig & other festival favourites. Sleepy Tom has since left an indelible mark on dance music with a string of highly anticipated releases, not to mention a non-stop stream of DJ mixes, bootlegs, and gigs worldwide.

Reinvigorating a 90’s classic, Diplo and Sleepy Tom put their spin on “Be Right There” with Priscilla’s fresh take on Jade’s original vocals. Bouncy, addictive synths contrast against the longing lyrics to create a feel-good dance track.

Diplo and Sleepy Tom pack “Be Right There” to the brim with bass during the drops, as rubbery low notes ricochet against the driving beat. Diplo is known to intermix different genres, and his use of future house elements pays off, resulting in an infectiously dance-able track.

Diplo & Sleepy Tom: Be Right There Lyrics:
[Verse 1: Jade]
All this love, waiting just for you
I just gotta know that your love is true
Can’t keep running boy in and out my life
Wanna be your girl, not cause the mood is right

If I let you come inside, tomorrow will you hide
Will you be there for me, when I need someone to hold me
Baby don’t misunderstand, I do want for my man
I just need a little time, before I invest my love

[Chorus: Jade]
Don’t walk away boy (Don’t walk away) my love won’t hurt you
Don’t walk away boy (Don’t walk away) I’ll be right there for you
Don’t walk away boy (Don’t walk away) my love won’t hurt you
Don’t walk away boy (Don’t walk away) I’ll be right there for you
Don’t walk away boy (Don’t walk away) my love won’t hurt you
Don’t walk away boy (Don’t walk away) I’ll be right there for you

[Bridge: Jade]
I’ve got all this love, all this love, waiting just for you, just for you
I’ve got all this love, all this love, waiting just for you, just for you
I’ve got all this love, all this love

[Chorus: Jade]
Don’t walk away boy (Don’t walk away) my love won’t hurt you
Don’t walk away boy (Don’t walk away) I’ll be right there for you
Don’t walk away boy (Don’t walk away) my love won’t hurt you
Don’t walk away boy (Don’t walk away) I’ll be right there for you
Don’t walk away boy (Don’t walk away) my love won’t hurt you
Don’t walk away boy (Don’t walk away) I’ll be right there for you
