Lost Idol

Brave The Elements


Released: 1st March 2010 | 10 track downtempo single
James Dean, producer & man behind the Cookshop record label, steps out from the shadows to don his Lost Idol alias & deliver his second full length lp. It has been quite a wait since 2006's critically acclaimed 'Utters From A Cluttered Mind', however Lost Idol has spent this time carefully developing a sound that moves away from the psychedelic songcraft of his debut & into a predominantly instrumental oeuvre that reflects his love for electronica, ambient, krautrock, soundscapes & beyond. For those aware of Dean's musical background this period of development should come as no surprise. From his initial cinematic sample-based work as Lost Idol for the late, great Pork label & his electronic output as J-Spool for Marco Passarani's Nature imprint through to his work on his own Cookshop label he has constantly strived for an idiosyncratic style that coherently blurs the lines between tags & genres. 'Brave The Elements' is a record that does just that; it is an emotive listen that dares to be different & looks in at the world from Lost Idol's unique creative viewpoint. Melodic, atmospheric & beguiling, this is an immersive record that reveals its beauty through repeated listens. -Reviews / Features confirmed in Clash, Flux, Notion, Lodown, Stool Pigeon, Quietus & more -DJ / Radio support from Gideon Coe (BBC 6Music), Lauren Laverne (BBC 6Music), Solid Steel, Totally Radio & more
"Portishead, Aphex Twin, Thom Yorke, Murcof & Apparat all rolled in to one & the result is quite beautiful"
"harnesses raw elements & deftly smelts them into something entirely different & wonderful. 4/5"
