It’s already a massive feat for a modern dance musician to release a 16-track album early in their career. Most artists are content to ride the single and EP train well throughout their first decade.
In contrast, Belgium’s Lost Frequencies (real name: Felix De Laet) shatters that mold and steps over it in triumphant strides with today’s release of the Less Is More deluxe edition, a complete reimagining of all 16 tracks from his debut LP, with the added introductory bonus of his recent collaboration with Netsky, “Here with You.”
The fresh drop features clubbier versions of all his familiar tunes, from the breakthrough cover of Haddaway‘s ’90s classic “What Is Love” to the Sandro Cavazza-assisted “Beautiful Life.” It’s a sensible retrofit. Less is More originally aimed to show a tempered side of dance music’s emotive capabilities, while the revamped deluxe package showcases the producer’s versatility. It contextualizes each track in two different spheres of the dance music world, and Lost Frequencies is the musical mind that bridges your experience.
The cover is an introverted color scheme of the original. Where the original release is all light, this deluxe take is a darker addition. This is what a night out on the floor really sounds like with Lost Frequencies.
It’s out everywhere today on Armada Records. Turn it up and let your head nod hard from beginning to end below.
