Lost Idol releases White Light...

UK-based electronic artist Lost Idol recently emerged from the shadows with his third studio album Chrome Machine Tales. Hailed as “a perfect collection of ambient pop and electronica" (DJ Food), it maintained a sense of melancholy that has become Lost Idol's calling card. That sound is explored further on White Light, a mini-album containing three new songs along with remixes by Kettel, Digitonal and Jilk.

Lost Idol's Chrome Machine Music mix

Check out the new Lost Idol album Chrome Machine Tales at https://lostidol.bandcamp.com/album/chrome-machine-tales

To celebrate the release of his third studio album Chrome Machine Tales producer and DJ Lost Idol embarks on a 60-minute sojourn exploring the sounds and textures which have influenced his new work. From beatless free-floating ambience from Fennesz, Mountains and Jurgen Muller through to bittersweet wonk-pop from Weval and Julia Holter, classic electronica from Plaid and The Future Sound Of London through to a handful of Lost Idol's own creations, Chrome Machine Music is the soundtrack to a day in the life of a man who's often lost but rarely idle.

Splutters From A Cluttered Drive

Hark! The purge of the Lost Idol vault has begun!

'Splutters From A Cluttered Drive' is a collection of Lost Idol recordings from the early 2000's (2000 to 2006 to be more precise). Most of these tracks were released in some shape or form on the Cookshop label, but were never widely available in digital format until now.
