He took the name “Lucas” by combining his name “Luis Carlos Suarez”, and chose “Coast” as tribute to his musical identity forged by the Colombian and Miami coasts.

One of the main characteristics of Lucas Coast is that he prints his stamp on each of the songs he composes and performs, and on “Conmigo” his most recent single is no exception. In this new release he presents an urban proposal with electronic sounds.

One of the anecdotes creating and making the video for «Conmigo» was during the general production of this song, it took them about two weeks, but as time went by, they added new ideas and polished it appropriately. In the video recording, they had to fight against the weather, against the Medellín peak and plate, and other factors that got out of hand. Anyway, each member of the team injected him with the best energy, and they managed to bring out this great production in a quite different environment than what urban music has accustomed us. The setting of the video, and the electronic elements of the song come together in a masterful way.
