Zero, the second single from Lost in Desire’s upcoming studio album arouses exorbitant expectations. Surprisingly sinister but nevertheless incredibly sovereign Zero presents a new side of Stephan Sutor’s music.
„Is it the beginning or is it the end in a world that makes no sense?“ Stephan asks in the first line of Zero. The thematic subject reminds of the prophecy of the upcoming end of the world and social criticism is as prominent as reflexions about the existence of the self in this world. The musical background is, of course, equally gloomy. While the synthesizer appears to evoke a funeral procession, the guitars are blasting in deep frequencies and no later than after the countdown from three to Zero it becomes clear that Armageddon is dangerously close.
However, since not everyone awaits the apocalypse with a gloomy mood, Lost in Desire ensures that one can dance exuberantly to the final countdown. The dancefloor heroes Silicon Brothers prove once again that they are on top of every subgenre of electronic music and present a properly wobbling dubstep remix, which does not leave a single brain cell unharmed. The Austrian industrial duo PsioniC promises to lure the fellowship of dark electro and techno into night clubs and keep it awake until the early morning with their remix.
Notable musicians, as Ashley Dayour and Reinhard Schwarzinger from Whispers in the Shadow, participated in the studio recordings. Together with Stephan’s love for vintage synthesizers they illuminate Zero with an organic warmth, which can only be seldom found in current productions.
