Waterloo Records

With influences ranging from a lifelong love of pop melodies & '80s New Wave through J. Dilla to the Mahavishnu Orchestra, LA based producer & multi-instrumentalist Lost Midas treads an aesthetic turf somewhere between Neon Indian & 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 in his teens and into his '20s. As the anchor of popular hip hop & funk seven piece the Press Project, 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 Lyeoka, also widened his horizons. Mastering a range of instruments along the way (including his current favorite, the keys), he gradually developed an obsession with composition and the endless possibilities within the realm of electronic production.
