Image: 1610132 ‘Undefined’ is the second album from talented LA-based electronic producer, Lost Midas. The new long player attests to a year-or-so spent stripping back musical methods and rebuilding them, putting a strong focus on the deceptively simple art of classic song-craft. ‘Undefined’ sits at the heart of unique leftfield electronic and gleaming pop music.

Lost Midas’ ‘Undefined’ celebrates the LA producer’s enjoyment of iconic aesthetics found in contemporary pop, by pairing them with a sensory experience of sinuous IDM beats and synths, backed up with relatable and honest subject matter which touches on real relationships. Other personal flourishes like using his father’s photography in the artwork show Lost Midas imbue deeper meaning to the project through these simple humbling touches.

Lost Midas is the project of producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jason Trikakis, who is originally from Boston but now rooted in LA – a city which fascinates and frustrates in equal measure, and whose contrasts heavily influence his sound. He developed much of his new material with the help of friend Josh Wood – an in-demand songwriter who produces under his vocal moniker Kalispell and whose major collaborations include projects for Janet Jackson, Pitbull and Krewella.

In addition to heavy support from BBC 6Music, and tastemakers like Lefto and John Kennedy (Radio X), props for Lost Midas have come from THUMP, RA, Earmilk, LA Canvas, Okayfuture and XLR8R, plus features in Clash, DJ Mag and mixes for radio shows including Tom Ravenscroft (BBC 6Music).
