Anything touched by Kaytranada is flawless. I guess I won't shock anyone with that statement, but it felt like a good opener for this feature.

Shay Lia's latest track "Cherish" will give you goosebumps. The 2 Canadian artists crated a powerful, raw and emotional sound, inspired by the horrible events in Syria and the news of hundreds of drawn people trying to reach safe shores far away from their home.

Who’s next to die drown on the shore?

And when did a boat get safer than home hmm?

Cause no one wants to leave home

Oh no one wants to leave home

Deep down even a child knows that if people could..

Kaytra's going heavy on the bass with this one. I have to say, my favourite thing about the track short vocal male sample used as a percussion in the background. The whole sound is the perfect stage for Shay's piercing vocals. Captivating.
