With releases On Kompakt, Permanent Vacation, Eskimo and K7, Steve Moore aka Zombi aka Gianni Rossi aka Lovelock has long been known on the scene. As is his sound. Lovelock is massively-produced '80s-infected discoid power-pop, where excellent neon songwriting of a very high caliber meets the ultimate groove, hook and song structures. 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 futurist vistas conjured by the music of multi-instrumentalist 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. Though his analog 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 under the Lovelock moniker in recent years, placing a club-ready stamp on tracks by Sally Shapiro, Camille as well as recent singles by Washed Out and Brahms. Lovelock has also been tapped by artists far outside the dance-pop idiom: he's converted tunes by the Melvins, Genghis Tron, and Voivod into raucous, glam-rock stomps and driving, Miami Vice chase-scene soundtracks.
