Lost in a Moment

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Adam Greenberg
Lost in a Moment is the debut album from a pair of veterans on the electronica and club scene working together: Dennis Wheatley, better known as part of Atlas, and Nina Miranda, a roving British vocalist. The combination of the two for a single sound becomes an interesting exercise in organic music. The vocals are enveloped in electronica, but Wheatley is careful to take care with them.

Lost in a Moment is the debut album from a pair of veterans on the electronica and club scene working together: Dennis Wheatley, better known as part of Atlas, and Nina Miranda, a roving British vocalist. The combination of the two for a single sound becomes an interesting exercise in organic music. The vocals are enveloped in electronica, but Wheatley is careful to take care with them. Miranda's voice is soft and often unadorned. She has a naïveté to her delivery that evokes (along with touches of Portuguese in her lyrics) the work of Astrud Gilberto. At the same time, in combination with Wheatley's instrumentals, the sound comes close to the trip-hop of Portishead at times. This is a fine example of electronica as accompaniment, but more. Normally, the production wizards spend so much time devising new tricks and hooks to show off that the end result doesn't seem quite put together when a vocalist is added. Here, the total is a fine piece of work, with the components complementing one another well.
