With influences ranging from a lifelong love of pop melodies and the ‘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; irresistible and enduring ditties peeped through a shifting shroud of striking textures and idiosyncratic beats.
Lost Midas is the alter ego of Boston born Jason Trikakis, who first established himself as a hip hop drummer throughout his teens and into his ‘20s. As the anchor of popular hip hop and funk seven-piece the Press Project, which formed at university in New Hampshire, Trikakis had his first taste of full scale touring, including support for The Roots and backing for Slick Rick. A stint in indie rock band The Honors in the mid 2000s, along with various session work including for Nigerian vocalist Iyeoka, also widened his horizons.
Chorus Grant is music for people who like Elliot Smith, Wilco and Cass McCombs. While the music is immensely alluring and easily accessible for the listeners, the lyrics and the concept of Chorus Grant are revolving around events and emotions we all recognise, but seldomly understand. It leaves room for interpretation.
