St Germain (aka Ludovic Navarre), whose albums Boulevard (1995) and Tourist (2000) originated a genre of French
electronic music that later included artists like Daft Punk, has returned to the studio to create his first album in 15 years.
The self-titled record marries percussive grooves, which have always been central to St Germain’s sound, with a new
element: traditional Malian music. The album drops October 9th on Nonesuch Records, and Giant Step is pleased to offer you a download of the first single, “Real Blues”, along with 6 remixes from Atjazz & Terry Laird.

The record marries percussive grooves, which have always been central to St Germain’s sound, with a new element: traditional Malian music. Composed, produced, recorded and mixed by Navarre at his Paris studio, the Magic House, and mastered by Alex Wharton at Abbey Road, “Real Blues” features a vocal sample from Lightnin’ Hopkins’ “You Caused My Heart to Weep” and instrumental contributions from Brazilian percussionist Jorge Bezerra, Malian kora player Mamadou Cherif Soumano, Malian guitarist and n’goni player Guimba Kouyate, and keyboardist and longtime St Germain collaborator Didier Davidas, from Martinique.

    St Germain has not lost his mystical touch. ‘Real Blues’ is a delightful package I will happily support on radio (mi-soul.com) and gigs. Simply gorgeous!

    Even with the remix support, the original version shines brightest. Looking forward to hearing the album in its entirety.

    World class sound! Terry Laird performed a little miracle there. We waited and waited for the St. Germain’s new album and it’s finally on its way. Can’t wait to get my hands on it.
