Introducing French nu-disco producer Sara Costa and her new single, Watch Me Dance
Featuring vocalist Opé Smith, it packs some impeccably smooth grooves.
France, Lyon-based producer Sara Costa has recently partnered up with vocalist Opé Smith for a new single Watch Me Dance, and it was just too damn groovy for us not to find out more. Coming from a family of musicians, Costa has been DJing for several years, before turning her attention towards production with so far, so very good results. Take a listen to Watch Me Dance and her debut single Sirop while getting to know her below:
Tell us about about yourself?
I’m from Lille (North of France) and I’ve always been fond of music. I started taking DJ courses when I was 15 and It was my passion for hip-hop culture that drove me behind the decks. I moved from one place to another before settling in Lyon and joining the DJ School UCPA. The same school allowed me to play in clubs, but I was attending a lot of concerts and festivals at this time. Thanks to the courses, I was taught movie making, music production, light and PA systems. Getting to learn all these fields allow you to be versatile and for over 10 years now, I make a living out of DJing. Lately I have been working a lot on music production, for me it is like going back to my roots. It made me want to release my own projects.
What kinda tunes we talkin’?
I don’t want to be locked in a certain style. I like the fact that I have many influences, and I find it cool to try few different things, different melodies. I try to focus on emotions! Sirop is tropical house, electro chill… Watch Me Dance is more funky and groovy… All I want for the moment is to communicate some good vibes without following any trends.
Before releasing my first single Sirop in July, I was working on a lot of unfinished projects but Sirop… the inspiration came right away and I finished this project quicker than any others. I can produce pretty much everywhere! As soon as I have an idea, I work on it. My productions are my emotions and my surroundings, this is a part of me.
Can you tell us about your latest single, Watch Me Dance?
I wanted something funky and melodic! I had the great opportunity to work with Opé Smith on this track, his voice is so groovy! I produced the track so that people could enjoy it while chilling or dancing.
Any shows coming up?
I’m currently in Costa Rica. The next gig is at club Aura in Zurich 10th of February and after that in my town, at the Hard Rock Café Lyon.
What’s the rest of the year have in store?
I have many upcoming projects this year and two tracks signed to Sony Music France.
Where can we hear more of your music?
