Irresistible "LoveStar" Brings Dance Beats and a Message of Love
Aliens, robots, and passionate lovers join forces on new electronic dance album
With lyrics stripped down to bare essentials, each track brings out the euphoria at the heart of love. "You Are My Life (Retro Mix)" launches the trip with a classic vibe. A subtler, seductive feel flows through "Hypnoticon (Obsession Mix)." "Fornax A (Mission of Love Mix)" conjures a spaceship voyaging in deep space to spread the message of love. Kraftwerk-inspired sequencers dominate in the machinelike "Robots in Love (Circuit Overload Mix)." Two additional tracks warrant a special mention. Creatures reminiscent of the cuddly tribbles from Star Trek accompany the singer on "Virgo Cluster (Zodiac Sky Mix)." The album closes with the ambient sounds and alien mating calls of "Ceruvean Twilight (Alien Love Mix)."
O'Bergh, whose albums range from EDM to jazz to spoken word to world beat, says he wanted to capture the energy and imagination of sci-fi, and electronic house music was the perfect vehicle. The music draws on multiple influences, including progressive house, lounge, tribal, trance, and pyschedelia. The blend of unusual voices and ear-catching effects suggests a world both familiar and strange, but at its heart is an uplifting, positive vibe.
The album is available at iTunes, Amazon, and CD Baby, as well as through most streaming services.
