For Those I Love, the brainchild of Dublin producer and songwriter David Balfe shares the remix of his track ‘You Stayed / To Live (Ela Minus Remix)‘. LISTEN HERE.
Having released his debut album For Those I Love to significant public and critical acclaim earlier this year, the album sits at #1 release of 2021 on review aggregator Album Of The Year and is the 3rd Best Album Of 2021 on Metacritic. The record was celebrated as BBC 6 Music’s ‘Album Of The Day’ and has already appeared in a number of mid-year best-of lists at the likes of The Sunday Times, Pitchfork, NME, CLASH, and more. He has also recently been nominated for a prestigious Ivor Novello Award in the ‘Best Contemporary Song’ category for the track ‘Top Scheme‘.
Following previous remixes by Overmono and Finn, For Those I Love shares a remix from Ela Minus whose critically-acclaimed debut album, Acts Of Rebellion, landed on Domino in 2020. The Columbian-born and Brooklyn-based artist adds a newfound propulsion to ‘You Stayed / To Live’. Percussive and resonant, her remix forges an early morning club imprint upon a track that lyrically evokes early memories and that emotes and exhales on past experience still clear and present.

Last month, For Those I Love also shared a football-themed video for ‘To Have You’ that premiered with The FADER. It successfully and poignantly captures the real-life community and sense of life that exists around a football club and in this case Shelbourne FC, a League Of Ireland club that David and friends passionately support to this day, with Shels – as they’re affectionately known by fans – even making an appearance on the cover of the album. On that cover, a fan holds a flare aloft from the terraces, set alight at 27 minutes to represent the 27 years of age at which they lost Shelbourne fan, and David’s best friend, Paul Curran.
The club’s shared stadium, Tolka Park, where David and his friends would go on to scatter Paul’s ashes, is currently under threat. You can read more about the Save Tolka Park campaign here.
