Grammy Nominated Producer Saint Luke Hosts Networking Mixer "Samples n' Needles"

3 Rooms, 3 Setups, 3 Vibes

Written by Amirah Kane-Waheed

On Tuesday, we were invited to attend the Samples N' Needles mixer at the Eden Compound in Egg Harbour Township, NJ. Saint Luke, an up-and-coming producer from Atlantic City, hosted the event. He has worked with many major industry artists, but he was most notable for his work on “Lucky” featured on H.E.R.'s Grammy-nominated album “Back of My Mind.” Three rooms were set up, each having its unique feel.

Music lovers, artists, producers, and many others attended this mixer. It was a worthwhile networking opportunity for those interested in knowing the who's who of South Jersey. During our time in the EDM room, we had a chance to speak with DJ Henry, one-half of the DJ-ing duo Dos. He shared a few encouraging words for aspiring DJs back home, “…find your sound, be able to market yourself in a proper way, surround yourself with good people, and don’t follow the crowd.”

DJ KJ Butta played a classic 90s hip-hop mix in the "Red Room." His flow was reminiscent of the 90s and made this our favorite room of the night. As part of the night, we also had an exclusive interview with Saint Luke in which we discussed how his spiritual beliefs and perseverance drive him to continue producing soul-sonic music. He credits his faith in God when it comes to walking with purpose.

Amirah sat down with Philly songwriting legend Res to discuss the opening of Recess Records. It is a female-owned and operated recording label. In addition, she shared her experiences working with John Mayer, Hi-Tek, and others. The inspiration she offers to the ladies is, "...With every step forward, just know you are enough."

A musical showcase featuring Steve McKie, Saint Luke, and DJ Nomad capped off the evening. We were incredibly honored to be able to witness the greatness that took place at this event. Our team had a great time enjoying the trifecta of vibes.

Watch out for Saint Luke’s upcoming projects and releases soon. As a musician, he is incomparable and has one of the most soulful sounds in South Jersey today.
