lost midas - memory fluxArtist: Lost Midas
Release: Memory Flux
Label: Tru Thoughts
Genre: Dance – Leftfield

Lefto (the BBC DJ) tweeted “Dreaming to the sounds of Lost Midas”, and there’s a reason for that: lush, beautiful electronica (backed by a visionary video) from this young LA producer gravitating close to Brainfeeder and Flying Lotus. Irresistible and enduring tracks peeped through a shifting shroud of striking textures and idiosyncratic beats. With influences ranging from a lifelong love of pop melodies and 80s New Wave, through J. Dilla to The Mahavishnu Orchestra, LA based producer and multi-instrumentalist Lost Midas treads an aesthetic turf somewhere between Neon Indian and Bibio.
