TEN CITY ‘BE FREE’
With the sole intent of uplifting people, ‘Be Free’ has an underlying message of inclusivity. Stingily’s lyrics remind us that we are all alike. That we all deserve freedom and we deserve to be respected. House music since its inception has always brought people together, created in the Latino, Black and LGBTQ+ scenes in early Chicago it always set out to unify, a message that is particularly significant for our time and reinforced by Stingily and Jefferson.

Now signed to Ultra Music, which presents a fitting home for this release, preserving their sound and helping share their important message.
