about

Lost in a Moment is Shrift's first album, but it's hardly a debut for the group's two members, singer/songwriter Nina Miranda and multi-instrumentalist/producer Dennis Wheatley. Both have extensive experience in the world of electronic dance music: Miranda is a charter member of the celebrated British group Smoke City, which has scored European hits with its unique blend of bossa nova, trip hop, jazz, reggae and funk. In 1997, Smoke City provided the soundtrack to a TV commercial for Levi's jeans, and videos for their songs "Underwater Love," "Mr. Gorgeous" and "Águas de Março" have received regular TV airplay. Miranda has lent her elegant vocal stylings to projects by such world-music luminaries as Bebel Gilberto, Daniel Jobim and Jah Wobble, as well as contributing to the Smoke City side project Da Lata.
Nina Miranda's singing style was formed by a variety of influences, most obviously the divided childhood she spent shuttling between homes in Britain and Brazil. She is equally comfortable singing in English, Portuguese or French, and she shifts from one language to the other several times during the course of Lost in a Moment.
Her musical partner Dennis Wheatley is best known for his work with Atlas, a British electro band with a history of taking existing elements (Brazilian singers, string quartets, Randy Newman's "Baltimore") and whipping them up into delectably, danceably new ethno-electro mixtures.
