Ambient chill for the deep thinkers and summer-sun dwellers, Dj Kazo’s Lost is a blissfully calming, hypnotic groove of a track. Flickers of a soulful voice repeat a single question on top of a heavy bass-line, utilising the impact of contrast beautifully.
Showcasing an impressively unique approach to production, mainly in the structure of the track – the arrangement choices – Lost feels like a late-night comfort or the perfect accompaniment to a long-drive. Given that it’s actually under three minutes long, this broader feel offered by the experience is essentially a clever illusion of superb production.
Dj Kazo takes his time to craft the track, a twenty-second intro only subtly hinting at a beat or melody or concept to come. Then things fall into place with style, every element finely chosen, somewhat organic enough to provoke interest in a live performance, yet still pristinely-tuned enough to speak volumes on behalf of impressive production.
There’s even a slightly jazz-like sound to the vocal, giving it a sax-inspired quality that would be easy to switch in for some kind of remix.
