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.

UK-based electronic artist Lost Idol returns with his third studio album following the acclaimed Utters From A Cluttered Mind (Cookshop, 2006), Brave The Elements (Cookshop, 2010) and releases through Marco Passarani's Nature Recordings and Pork Recordings. Chrome Machine Tales is an immersive yet surprisingly concise and accessible electronic pop album imbued with a sense of melancholy that has become Lost Idol's calling card.
“A perfect collection of ambient pop and electronica" - DJ Food
“Flashbacks of circuit board lullabies after a hard day on the autobahn" - Matt Oliver (Clash Magazine)
"Think Fujiya & Miyagi playing with Kraftwerk and fronted by Jacco Gardner" - Resident Music
"One of the most underrated bedroom producers hailing from the UK, his latest album is informed by the same airy self-conception for contemporary electronic pop like his previous album - it just feels more coherent and even more bittersweet this time around" - Lodown Magazine
