St. Beatus, a mysterious entity based in the UK, is one of HopePunk Records' new development artists, exploring retro, emo-heavy electronic synth soundscapes and grooves.
This project actually had its origins back in 2006 as a creative escape from the artists' other more rock-based music projects - exploring electronic lounge/house vibes with selectively added instrumentation and vocals. Loads of songs were written and recorded, but never released.
electronic. groovy. loungy.
Fast forward to 2017 when he spent a magical few weeks in Seychelles, and it was sitting on the legendary beach on La Digue, when a groovy melody formed in his head - this was to become "LA DIGUE" - the summer anthem that re-ignited the St. Beatus flame, which released in October 2021.
It's been a slow brew, but the result is sure to please many an eardrum. And more songs are in the works..
