A Rough Guide to St. Lucia Vol.1
Flare | 19 August 2020 | 609 MB
The project of singer-songwriter Jean-Philip Grobler, Brooklyn’s St. Lucia makes shimmery, ’80s-influenced, synth-driven pop. With 2013’s When the Night, Grobler channeled the inspirations of his youth with more contemporary influences that included tropical pop. St. Lucia’s music only grew more uplifting and anthemic with releases such as 2018’s Hyperion, which incorporated elements as far-flung as gospel choirs and ’90s pop. All sounds in this pack were recorded or sampled by Grobler personally and either recorded in a session for something that never ended up on a St. Lucia record or for future writing. He said, “I decided to make 808, CR78, and Oberheim DX samples because I’ve never seen samples of those machines at 96k which is what I tend to work at, and the guy I share a studio with owns those drum machines so it was also a good way for me to catalog those things for when I’m traveling.” Consider this pack St. Lucia’s personal inspiration and song-starter library open for you to use in your next ’80s-inspired electro, synth-wave, or pop banger.
