Review: Following the fantastic reactions received for their previous collaborative EPs, Lee Burridge and mask-wearing man-of-mystery Lost Desert have decided to release a third EP single. They hit the ground running with "Loopyness", a pleasingly positive, fluid and sun-kissed chunk of rolling deep house/tech-house fusion full of cascading synthesizer lines, stretched-out chords and squidgy synth-bass. You'll find more dreamy, sunset-friendly warmth in the shape of "Botanic", where heady chords and yearning melodies flutter in and out of view. The duo completes a fine package with "12CC", where portions of extended ambient bliss make way for Innervisions style grooves and near Balearic electronics.
Review: Over the last few years the partnership between former Tyrant mainstay Lee Burridge and mystery producer Lost Desert has resulted in a string of impeccable deep house releases. "Melt", their most expansive collaborative release to date, is similarly atmospheric, intricate and picturesque. They set the scene brilliantly via a trio of sublime ambient cuts (the new age bliss of "Melt" and epic "Lingala (Beatless)" being the standouts) before shuffling towards the dancefloor on the deep and languid "Rain". Simon Vaurambon lends a hand on the atmospheric, bass-heavy chug of "One", while regular vocalist Junior lends his honeyed tones to the string-drenched positivity of "Mibale". Elsewhere you'll find more sweet and seductive dream house treats, with "Christina, Daydreaming" providing a fittingly loved-up finale. Superb stuff!
