[Audio] St. Lucia’s ‘All Eyes On You’ reMixed by Goldroom

 

st-lucia_thumb_thumb

Here’s a meeting of two of Americas finest purveyors of blissful tunes. New Yorks hazy ElectroPop sensation, St. Lucia released one of the albums of the year in 2013, and on that album was a little track called All Eyes On You. A tack which looks set to be his next single if the looks of this brand new reMix from the-man-with-the-Dreamwave-plan Goldroom is to be believed.

There’s some devilish purcussion going on in this one. Goldroom tune just make you want to get up and dance (if it’s sunny, if it’s not the make you want to close your eyes and pretend you’re dancing in the sun), and that’s heightened with the drums on this reMix. Embracing St. Lucia’s dreamy ElectroPop sound, Goldroom delivers a floaty Beach House tune to get carried away in. We weren’t going to mention the Sax, we were going to just let you discover it. But the sax!

[Download] Final DJs reMix The Knocks And St. Lucia’s ‘Modern Hearts’

So, Germany’s Final DJs are a little late to the Modern Hearts party. By now everyone and their dog has reMixed the track and we may have said we weren’t going to write about any more reMixes. But we’ll just sneak this last version of The Knocks and St. Lucia’s masterpiece in here as a bit of Summer 2013 nostalgia. Enjoy.

Final DJs whip up a rollicking piano led Disco-House jam right here. Infusing the piano hook with wicked little Disco licks the duo keep things light, airy and synthy. The track’s breezy keys counterpointed with a rich and spongy bassline. It all works wonderfully with the vocals, making the track infectiously fun and headed straight for the dancefloor. Another fine piece of work from the Teutonic twosome.

The clip, directed by Norton, depicts Jean-Philip Grobler and his band throwing parties, jamming, hanging out on the street, nodding at their band friends, in a this-is-what-the-rest-of-the-world-thinks-life-in-Brooklyn-is-really-like way

[Audio] St. Lucia’s ‘Too Close’

New York based ElectroPopper St. Lucia’s long long long awaited début album is finally almost upon us. And, as is customary these days, this revelation comes with a title, a release date, and a brand new track taken for the forthcoming record. The title, When The Night. The release date, 8th October. The brand new track, Too Close. Check it out.

If Too Close is anything to go buy we’ll be in for a treat come October. A buoyant and uplifting slice of complex ElectroPop but a seriously massive middle-eight. While the vocals sections of the tune are the most epic of emotion SynthPop, all rolling arpeggios and Jean-Philip Grobler belting out heartfelt lyrics, the meat of the track comes in the form of it;s instrumental section. Borrowing slightly from synth based prog rock, it’s a cosmic wig out full of soaring solos, LFO powered sweeps, and juggernaut drum fills. Impressive stuff.

[Audio] digitalfoxglove reMixes The Knocks & St. Lucia’s ‘Modern Hearts’

 

the knocks

digitalfoxglove tunes. Like busses, if you’ll excuse the cliché. You wait for ages for one then two come along at once. Pulling up to the rear of yesterday’s Daytona comes DFG’s ReDub of The Knocks and St. Lucia’s awesome recent single Modern Hearts. Take your Disco hat off though, this one is going to get deep.

Italo Dub, if you will (and we do!), this reMix get under your skin with a relentless hypnotic groove. Quite Techno in places, the synthetic arpeggios and machine drums pounding out a mid-paced rhythm create an unwavering core for the track. Heavily modulated snatches of the original’s vocal float in and out of the track alongside Dub-like effects bringing a slightly unsettling vibe to the track. It’s no-less compellingly funky though.

Here’s the new single from Brooklyn ElectroPopper St. Lucia. It’s been dropped to celebrate the announcement of Jean-Philip Grobler’s début album, to be titled When The Night, and it’s release date in October. If Elevate is anything to go be, this album could be something really special, just we didn’t have to wait until summer is over for such a summery record.

That’s what Elevate is, pure breezy summer anthem. a Tropically tinged slice of Indie-ElectroPop that can;t fail to put you in a good mood. With a solid Indie-Disco bass hook to revolve around, St. Lucia generously heaps on thick buzzing synths and swirling tones complimented with splashes of jangly guitar. Grobler’s vocals have never sounded so epic, so anthemic, as he belt out an optimistic opus that’ll stick in your head all day. Stick around for the horn section, everything goes crazy nostalgic then.

The Knocks

We’ve been looking forward to hearing this one ever since we first heard rumbles that New York Disco duo The Knocks were doing a track with one of our favourite ElectroPop artists St. Lucia. The result, The Knocks new single, Modern Hearts, is released later this month. Which, after a few listens is far too long to wait, it’s one of the jump-up DiscoPop tracks of the year.

Modern Hearts is a track that give you a rush. Combining the best of summery Disco sounds with a superbly written Pop anthem. A stomping beat pins the track down, giving free rein to thick synth stabs and playful arpeggios to ride a rolling bassline. Alongside St. Lucia’s soaring vocal, it all makes up one of those tracks that just makes you smile, you can’t help it, which is what makes it the perfect track for drinking and dancing in the sun. This one’s being added to our festival season playlist.

[Audio] Chvrches reMix St. Lucia

St. Lucia

Now, this is a bit of a treat. Two of the finest ElectroPop acts around  in a reMix sound-off.  Brooklyn SynthPop master Jean-Philip Grobler A.K.A. St. Lucia’s Before the Dive gets a beautiful, swirling abstract electro makeover by Glaswegian ElectroPop buzz factory Chvrches. That’s a meeting of minds we weren’t expecting, but we wonder where it’s been all out lives.

The result is a lush, experimental Pop tune (that’s experimental in a musical way, not experimental bashing some sheet metal and fiddling with the LFO way). Adding some of their own heavily effected vocals, Chvrches lay down a hypnotic piano hook, pounding industrial drums and layers upon layers of rich synths. This is serious genius at work!
