Lee Burridge has teamed up with Belgian vocalist Lost Desert for Melt - the British-born artist’s debut studio album, released via his own All Day I Dream imprint on 19th July.
Underpinned by downtempo melodies and understated grooves, the 10-track LP seeks to recapture the feel of Burridge’s fabled All Day I Dream parties, and features collaborations with contemporaries Simon Vuarambon and Junior. The mysterious Lost Desert, real name Patrick Bruyndonx, also provides backing vocals throughout. A deeply contemplative release, Melt conveys a complex blend of warmth, beauty, sadness and melancholy throughout.
“Music is a beautiful escape for so many of us. A place where strangers meet strangers and strangers make new friends. An initial way to bond. It speaks the same language that's understood by people from far and wide. It’s an experience shared. One between you and the artist or you and a crowd of hundreds or thousands,” explains Burridge, as he delves into the creative process behind the album.
“Melt hopes to create a connection. With it. With others. We both feel that musical music evokes a special kind of magic that instills itself deep in your soul. If you truly connect with it it stays with you forever. It marks a moment or moments that you shared with it and with others on your journey through life . This was one of our motivations when we wrote each track and the album as a full storytelling experience.”
