When you think of remixes, you normally think of dance mixes. St. Lucia decided not to go that route when remixing Foster the People's hit "Don't Stop," and instead added rock guitars and a sax outro to the otherwise danceable track. "I decided to take the remix in almost the opposite direction to the original, because Foster the People did such a good job with that version that I felt a completely different and more maximalist version needed to be explored," Jean of St. Lucia shares with Rolling Stone.

"I find that remixes are a good place to explore your influences as well, and with this I somehow went in two completely opposite directions at the beginning and at the end, referencing someone of the swagger of T-Rex and then morphing into a sort-of cheesy house thing at the end," he says. "It's a fun process, and I like to be open to whatever ideas might flow through me when I'm doing it."

“I Was Made to Love Her”

Stevie Wonder | 1967

Stevie Wonder discovered true love while still a teenager, writing this ode to young love when he was only 17. The song, Wonder explained, "kind of speaks of my first love, to a girl named Angie, who was a very beautiful woman. She's married now. Actually, she was my third girlfriend but my first love. I used to call Angie up and we would talk and say, 'I love you, I love you,' and we'd talk and we'd both go to sleep on the phone.” The Beach Boys, Chaka Khan, Whitney Houston and Boyz II Men have all recorded versions of "I Was Made to Love Her."
