Shortly after midnight, Friday 1.11, Gesaffelstein and The Weeknd dropped their highly anticipated collaboration “Lost in the Fire.” The creation between the French techno DJ/producer and Canadian Dark R&B singer is the follow-up to their previous appearances together “I Was Never There” and “Hurt You” from The Weeknd’s My Dear Melancholy, EP released in March of last year.
“Fire …” itself is an exceptional melding of the minds between both artists – aka Mike Lévy and Abel Tesfaye – that feature fast-paced, explicit vocals “I wanna fuck you slow with the lights on/ You’re the only one I’ve got my sights on/ Type of sex you could never put a price on/ I’ll take it off, you’re the one I’ll roll the dice on.”
Complementing the Grammy-winning singer’s signature vocals and lyrics is the impeccable synth-heavy production by Gesaffelstein that drives the song’s point home. Succinct percussion moves the recording forward while long and heavy chords oscillate in the background as aspects come together to create the powerful and sincere, bi-continental production.
