Around these parts, St. Lucia is better known for his reworkings on tracks from the likes of Passion Pit and Charli XCX, but today the tables have turned thanks to Scottish electro outfit CHVRCHES. You might recognize these guys from their massive hit “The Mother We Share,” but today they are demonstrating their re-mixology skills. And if you haven’t heard it yet, you need to ASAP.
This version of St. Lucia’s “Before the Dive” has been effectively chopped up, with added synths and distorted vocals, but ultimately maintains the vibrant feel of the original. Diving into an amalgamation of buoyant melodies that are recognizable to their aesthetic, CHVRCHES articulates their styles beautifully throughout St. Lucia’s productions. As far as we’re concerned, the combination is genius.
