zakè and dotlights met in early 2023, although both artists found that they shared affinities towards each other's works for years. Through conversations, there was one album that both artists equally cherished, ‘Stay With Me’ released in the summer of 2022 with zakè’s good friend T.R. Jordan. The album also featured a special appearance by the lovely marine eyes.

Deeply drawn by the sounds and story behind the album, dotlights commenced working with the original stems to create a very special collection of reimagined tracks with his unique lofi beatmaking and beautifully composed guitar aesthetics he’s become known for. With the assistance and this newly collaborative approach, zakè worked with both old and new stems, in addition to adding new synth production, field recordings, and tape manipulations to these remixed tracks.


dotlights is a guitarist / beatmaker from the Netherlands and a frequent contributor to Chillhop Records and Memoir Music. Working from a small home studio in a quiet town near the German border, he blends his guitar aesthetics with downtempo electronica vibes and lofi beats.

Indianapolis-based Zach Frizzell is the man behind the prolific zakè project, whose warm drones and analog textures have yielded dozens of albums – both solo and collaborative – across a broad spectrum of atmospheres and tonalities.  He is also the founder of Past Inside the Present, a renowned record label and artistic collective “in search of the world’s most inventive and engaging quiet music”, as well as its sister imprints, Zakè Drone Recordings and Healing Sound Propagandist. Despite the intensely personal nature of his recorded work – and of deep listening music in general – Frizzell is a benevolent and community-minded curator.  From his headquarters in the American Midwest, he has developed a roster of creative peers from as far away as England, Sweden, Japan, and China, all in pursuit of a new standard for modern experimental artistry.
