Artist: Lee Burridge & Lost Desert feat. Junior
Label: All Day I Dream
Release: Out Now!
It’s always super fun and exciting when you receive material that is completely different and breaks away from the usual conventional way of doing things. Lee Burridge, Lost Desert and Junior team up to deliver exactly that. Lee’s blend of melancholic techno and emotive house perfectly complements the unique style of Lost Desert, which he has built from the depths of the Congo, accompanied by the fascinating vocals of Junior, spoken in Congo’s native dialect ‘Lingala’, giving the track title.
The original starts off with some deep, minimal drums whilst introducing us to the powerful vocals of Junior before dropping us right into the dark, emotional elements that Lee Burridge is world renowned for. The smooth rumble of the low end becomes the body of the track alongside the repetitive minimal drum pattern, the parts that keep us hooked throughout. Various sounds bring the midrange alive with atmospheric synths and brilliantly produced percussive bells, which really give us a taste of the influence of the Congo on the track. This fantastic composition really hits like a cosmic boom.
We are also gifted with a wonderful remix from Moscow duo Gorje Hewek & Izhevski. The emotional content is in overdrive, I found myself sitting in deep thought whilst listening. Even the seemingly melodic drum pattern brought my senses alight. The remix leaves us feeling hypnotised by the whirlwind of emotions stirred. All Day I Dream is locked and loaded with this release. Make sure you have your tissues at the ready, your emotions will be heightened!
