Love by Machine is a nod to the fact that the Burden brothers are such revered masters of their hardware. Both in the studio, where they cook up atmospheric house and techno with soaring synths and vocals and also in the live arena, where they are celebrated as one of the most accomplished and forward-thinking performers in the game today.

Lenny: “We’ve been exploring the theme of connection with this project. How technology gives us the illusion that we are closer to each other more than ever. At some point, humanity crossed a line where the devices that we created to bring us together are the same devices that are blocking us from organic experiences”.

Lawrence: “Technology is only a tool, which we also had in mind during the recording process. We decided to go back to how we used to make our records when we didn’t have so many ‘sophisticated’ audio devices. Back to when we interacted in the studio together as musicians.”
