With releases on Kompakt, Permanent Vacation, Eskimo and K7, Steve Moore aka Zombi, aka Gianni Rossi, and now
Lovelock is a man whose sound is truly beginning to permeate the ether wherever we go. Lovelock is big 80´s production,
infected discoid power pop, the kind of which would fit perfectly into the neon lit backdrop of stylish late 70’s film noir. “A brilliant
and ballsy high gloss album” says Germany’s Groove Magazine and a serious comment on the current trend of 1980s
music as heard in soundtracks to films like “Drive”.
Though his analogue cascades can approach prog-rock levels of complexity normally explored by his groundbreaking duo
Zombi over the past decade, Moore’s affinity for smart pop melody and growing Italo-dancefloor sensibilities keep him out of
any such stylistic ghetto. In fact, he has become a sought-after remix artist both under his own name and the Lovelock moniker
in recent years, placing a club-ready stamp on tracks by Sally Shapiro (“Save Your Love,” Paper Bag Records, 2010),
Camille (“Home is Where it Hurts,” Virgin/EMI, 2008), as well as recent singles by Washed Out and Brahms.
Artists far outside the dance-pop idiom have also tapped lovelock: he’s converted tunes by the Melvins, Genghis Tron, and
Voivod into raucous, glam rock stomps and driving, Miami Vice chase-scene soundtracks. His original work – under both aliases
– has found its way onto full-length releases (2007’s “The Henge,” Relapse), and on compilations assembled by Eskimo
Records (Cosmic Balearic Beats, Vol. I, 2008) and Chromeo (DJ Kicks, 2009). Moore has released original material on the
Mexican Summer and Kompakt labels and released Gianni Rossi - 'Star Vehicle: Original Motion Picture Score' limited LP on
Munich’s Permanent Vacation.
Now prepare yourself for the full-length Lovelock release, ‘Burning Feeling’. The needle drops and a hyper-reality assembles
itself suddenly before the mind’s eye. Polygonal structures accented with clean neon lines; computerized sequences firing
with precision and synchronicity under a polished surface. These are the futuristic vistas conjured by the music of multiinstrumentalist
Steve Moore. He is the rare, balanced electronic pop composer whose work is at once visionary and hopelessly
nostalgic for the music of his youth: late ‘70s AM gold and that ubiquitous, synthesizer-driven pulse appropriated by everyone
from New Romantics to prime-time TV theme songs throughout the 1980s.
