Lost Midas Lost Midas… Found him

Showcase: Lost Midas

Published on October 21st, 2013 | Jonny Abrams

We found ourselves dazzled by Lost Midas’s recent “Love Undone” single, awarding it four quails in a recent singles round-up and describing it in the following terms:

Dreamy, technicolour electronica with, ooh, such delicious rattly bits in its gently heaving rhythm section. Like a more blissed-out Mount Kimbie, a more laid-back Flying Lotus…lovely stuff like that. So very lovely.

So, as we are wont to do, we folded our Showcase Q&A into a paper aeroplane, winged it off in his general direction, and yet again we found our target with unerring accuracy.

Lost Midas’s Hyper Phase EP will be released on November 18th and is available for preorder on his Bandcamp. The EP’s lead track “Dance Monkeys” is available now as a free download…

…and here’s the track that got us cooing along in the first place…

How would you describe your music, if pushed?

I call it electrofusion. “Electro” because I produce most of it electronically using a computer, and “Fusion” because I enjoy combining a diverse variety of styles and sounds.

Where are you based, and what do you use to record with?

Los Angeles. A MacBook Pro with Ableton and Logic.

Are you signed to a label? If so, how did you come to their attention?

Yes, Tru Thoughts. I was introduced to their North American label manager through a mutual friend. They liked what they heard on my SoundCloud and offered me a recording contract shortly thereafter.

Is there a full album in the works? If so, what can you tell us about it? (Feel free to be as abstract as you like…)

Yes. I’ve been in the studio writing for the past six months. I feel the record accurately fits the electrofusion tag, as it’s a diverse and wide-ranging sound, stylistically speaking. Every song has its own identity, yet they all still sound like Lost Midas.

Where can we hear your music online?

Which have been your most exciting gigs and/or overall moments so far?

Performing at Low End Theory a few weeks ago. The crowd was bonkers. It’s the perfect venue for the music I make. Their sound system hits hard and the crowd is all about it. There was a real positive energy about the night, and I had a freaking blast.

Got any more coming up? (Gigs, that is…)

Yes. At the Roxy in Hollywood on 11/8 opening for Gilbere Forte and Nylo.

Are there any obscure and/or up-and-coming acts that you’d like to recommend or give a shout-out to?

My brother Nick AKA NüTrik (featured on an upcoming single called “Dance Monkeys”) and Gypsymamba, who helped me in the making of my record.

Finally, if you were forced to spend the rest of your days in solitary confinement, but were allowed to bring the entire works of five different artists along to tide you over, whose would you choose?

In no particular order:

Herbie Hancock
Claude Debussy
Led Zeppelin
J Dilla
Boards of Canada

Lost Midas, thank you.
