Lee Burridge has ticked a lot of creative boxes in his three-decades-long career. The trailblazer helped import house and techno to Hong Kong, played a major role in the minimal house movement of the aughts, and more recently, has become a revered figure for his All Day I Dream parties and accompanying label. The brand and the label push an ethereal sound and ethos that encourages wistful moments of love and connection.
Its these themes that tie into Burridge’s next major endeavor: an album release alongside Lost Desert called Melt. With Lee steering the ship and Lost Desert doing the in-studio rowing, the two have been able to express themselves and their appreciation for music’s hidden powers. The LP is also Lee’s first. From the sounds of “Mibale,” its first single, Melt looks to be deep, melodic, and dreamy per their usual aesthetic. The lush tune sees Lost Desert and Lee reuniting with vocalist Junior, whose Lingala verses amplify the magic.
Melt will be released on July 19. Pre-order it here.
