Beloved artist Lost Desert has made his way back to All Day I Dream with a fresh EP just seven months after an open-heart surgery procedure.
Lost Desert is an artist who has become renowned for bringing sensational releases to the faithful following of All Day I Dream, and up until late last year, it seemed as if nothing would prevent him from continuing on that path. Toward the end of 2022, he was forced to put his career on hold as serious health challenges presented themselves, which culminated with an open-heart surgery procedure. Since then, Lost Desert has been on the road to recovery without knowing if or when he could continue to pursue his passion for creating and playing music – but fear not because he’s back in action with a little help from some friends.
Prior to putting a pause on his career, Lost Desert had begun working on a few track ideas with doubts that they might never be completed. But now, four of these tunes have found a home on the third volume of his EP series, Lost Desert & Friends. Leading the way is a collaboration with none other than label boss Lee Burridge, “My Time with you.” This groovy, sentimental house track acts as an ode to the friendship the two artists have developed over the years, with Lost Desert stating that the endless support from Lee “has been amazing” and that the time they’ve spent together was “life-changing.”
That’s just the start of this sonic journey, as Junior Akwety joins in on the fun for “Mwinda.” The organic percussion kicks this tune into gear as swirling synths permeate the atmosphere to lift your soul up to the heavens, with Akwety’s stunning vocals layered in to add even more depth. “Dwokire” arrives next to keep the melodic vibe rolling forward as Madraas teams up with Lost Desert, and from the stripped-back elements to the gorgeous voice of Sofiya Nzau you can’t help but fall in love with this tune.
And just when you thought Lost Desert might not have more surreal soundscapes left in his tank, “Liebe Dich” arrives as the finishing blow. Drums and hi-hats litter the intro of this near-eight-minute-long track before the euphoric groove commands your body to let go and move along with it. “‘Liebe Dich’ was one of the first tracks I made after my surgery. In the studio recording this song was one of the first times I felt happy and motivated again,” Lost Desert said about the track. “The timing of this record is crazy, wonderful, and blessed.”
