Several Definitions, steps in with his expertly produced EP for the label, Sierra. It’s heavily atmospheric and brilliantly produced, marrying analogue sensibilities with contemporary techno sounds to stunning effect.Sierra leaves you clinging onto the hope of a crescendo that always almost arrives. Smoke clouds the room. Kickdrums stomp along in the dust of moving machines, forging a trail into the darkness. This is very personal techno -minimal, spiritual, transcendental. Gorgeous analog bass rips fill the otherwise monochrome industrial atmospherewith flashes of vibrant dark. Hats shake against the obstinacy of the way of things: an atmosphere of darkness givesway to something more hopeful.This is where the ethos of Lost on You comes together- Several Definition’s production offers a glimpse of the light atthe end of the tunnel, and seems to speak for a world where things might get better.
We are happy to announce Florian Kruse & Saccao's debut on Lost on You. Paradox EP is an incredible voyage into organic and progressive house that will have you glued to the dancefloor. The two breathtaking tracks crafted by these artists evoke the sordid smokescapes of Berlin basements and weekend-long bacchanals.
Lost On You deliver two more very special cuts to fire up your dancefloor; The Epic Jaw Drop EP is the third release of the label, featuring Thessaloniki's premier party starters Alexandros Djkevingr and Greg Ignatovich bringing the heat from one of Europe's hottest nightlife destinations.
We are very proud to present Karibu EP. This time round, FreakMe brings his flawless production skills to Lost On You's ever-expanding catalogue of house and techno heavyweights. 'Moyo' is one of those tracks that makes the ground shake, a true hands-in-the-air melodic explosion and an envied secret weapon of the most cunning of DJs. Synthy trills and crisp, highly modulated low-end textures run over a pounding rhythm section, spinning and swirling into scenes of dancefloor devastation. The other track, 'Karibu', is for the hardcore Ibiza sunrise gang, reeling you in with slight African percussion, cowbells and subdued piano before the big catch: a whopping, mind-whirling melodic house chugger from another galaxy. Be careful- you might not come out on the other side.
We are very proud to present Ucronie EP by Parisian producer Animal & Me. His productions emerge from the darkest of basements and the dustiest of corners, operating along the leser-travelled frequencies of the techno spectrum. Like lots of modern day techno, Animal & Me is steeped in industrial aesthetics, but, like soil on your finger or sand underfoot, the three tracks on display on 'Ucronie' bring with them a touch of the earthier side of things.
Mattia Pompeo follows up on the trend of innovation seen in previous Lost On You releases by taking up the mantle of mid-2000s electro house whilst calling on the cutting-edge techno sensibilities of 'postmodern' electronic producers. The result is two spruce productions full of exhilaration and depth that act as the perfect next chapter to the Lost On You story. If you haven't yet joined the party, now's your chance to help change the world for the better.
Another euphoric outing from the charitable folks at Lost On You, the first and only record label to send 100%% of its proceeds to the less developed world. This latest release from Catalan man Fernando Lagreca is a red-hot electro bumper befitting of the headiest of nights under the Barcelona skies.
Now a mainstay of the Beatport emerging charts, Lost On You are still the first and only record label completely devoted to charity. Every copy of Camilo Sanjuan's 'Nifer' EP sold goes towards farming aid, food relief, Vitamin A supplements and medical supplies in the poorest swathes of Africa. And if that wasn't enough, Spanish mastering engineer-cum-producer Sanjuan might also have whirled up the best electronica EP you hear this Summer.
Still with us? Lost On You are back with two thumping melodic techno cuts. This time round, esteemed producer duo Rafael Cerato & Haze-M show their chops on a double EP that thrusts and bumps its way through fourteen minutes of cosmic ascension. "Perihelion EP" runs its course on multiple shots of technoid adrenaline, morphing and coalescing into late-night uproar with hints of 80s synth. Within this stomping backdrop, though, Cerato & Haze-M approach their art with a nuance that allows for headspace and a freedom to move, culminating in a melodic techno monster that gives DJs the tools to work the crowd in their grip.
Jump on the primitive rollercoaster segueing through the rainforest at incredible speeds, passing ancient tribes making fires with glass and exotic birds known to only the most intrepid of explorers. As you reach the summit, a thud. Thunder begins to rain from the sky in immense crashes, accompanied by lightning that illuminates the entire teeming forest beneath you. A moment of silence where humidity lurks in the air, and the floodgates open. When the thunder clouds part they reveal the first composition on Saive & Kleiber’s stunning Lost on You debut, ‘Naradir’, and it becomes clear that Lost on You have done it again. This is one for the late-night chuggers, the hands-in-the-air revellers, the misfits and freaks and those who want to feel that inexplicable connection to the earth that top-quality electronic music can impart upon its beholders.
Over the past year Lost On You has become somewhat like a secret weapon. DJs across the world have used our releases to make a change, both on the dancefloor and in towns and villages across poverty-stricken lands in Africa and beyond, where the label has already made substantial donations toward the global fight against Malaria. While lots have felt the power of Lost On You, not many folk know that LOY are the first - and to date, only - record label to donate 100% of the profits to charitable causes.
In this next release, Franz Alice Stern adds another two secret weapons to the arsenal, crafting a house of cards that could topple at any minute, breaking down the false dichotomy of black and white into a million kaleidoscopic flecks. This is the White & Black EP. Approach with caution.
Twelve releases and a hefty load of aid to families across the African continent later, Lost on You - the first and only record label to give 100% of its profits to charity - is still knocking out the bombs. It’s Brigado Crew & Crisstiano who bring the boom boom boom on Lost on You’s latest release, a high-fidelity offering of oscillator explorations designed for sunrise at the after party. Finishing off this incredibly adventurous EP is Lunar Plane’s remix of ‘Elephants’, bringing melody and, with it, narrative, to the tribal party in the plains.
The main feeling you take away from the Elephants EP is one of adventure not usually found in electronic music, of being guided somewhere - somewhere better - by invisible forces. And maybe there’s a parallel with the thousands of disadvantaged people who, because of this revolutionary record label, are now experiencing aid, however minor it may be. Remember, every download goes towards helping make the world that bit less miserable. And with four stompers like this on the menu, what are you really waiting for?
Sergio Mateo stokes the latest batch of fire from the Lost On You camp, a three-track collection of cosmic, spinned-out deep house excursions in the form of the Ishana EP. This release is but the latest addition to the growing list of successes for Lost On You, the world's first and only label to donate everything it makes to charity. So grab your earphones, get stuck in and do your bit - besides gifting three certified bombs to your library, purchasing the Ishana EP will provide indispensable aid for children and families stricken with medicine shortages, droughts and a lack of basic sanitary equipment.
D-Formation and Betoko provide the latest offering to the growing Lost on You back catalogue with the Klimax EP, a powerful beginning to 2019 that sets the bar at the highest echelons of its sonic milieu. The essence of quality progressive house music in all of its driving, cosmic, blissed-out euphoria, and it hasn't ever felt more natural.
This is an offering to the sonic lovers, the all-night heads, and, most importantly, to those who live in a world far removed from our own hedonistic dreams. Lost on You are changing the way that music affects spaces far more serious than the dancefloor, and every download purchased gives you a chance to be part of that very special movement.
Lost On You present their first compilation, a dizzying journey through the realms of tech house, deep house, melodic techno and late-night dancefloor weapons. From the throbbing gristle of opener 'Not Too Long Way' by Helen&Boys to the Middle Eastern electro sensibilities of Bruno Paulwels 'Temptations', Discovery Series 001 is an eye-opening exploration of a huge wealth of underground talent. All of these producers have one thing in common: by working with Lost On You they're helping to improve the world through music, one techno rocket at a time.
Arabian Desert comes loaded with three tracks that straddle the line between late-night melodic techno and all-out Berlin rave madness, all blessed with a deeper touch than many of its contemporaries. Vlad Jet configures his sonic palette with a highly captivating set of influences: Punjabi drums and beseeching vocal cries make up the spaces between sounds, bestowing the EP with a fire and creativity that's sorely lacking from the modern techno landscape.
We are happy to announce Apichada EP, Marcus Meinhardt's newest euphoria-soaked offering on Lost On You. With all the majestic Melodic Techno action you've come to expect plus two special remixes from Darin Epsilon and FreakMe, Lost On You's latest outing is already one for the 2019 highlight reel.
Meinhardt has crafted a 6-minute explosion full of mysterious flavours, revealing themselves n spiralling echoes and glimpses of percussion amidst the huge tones of his Melodic Techno palette. A backdrop of loose glass patterns leaving rainbow acid trails every time they shake. Analogue flavours so crunchy they sink their teeth into your sense of perception, turning the world into the mad crimson apocalypse of Marcus Meinhardt's mind. Apichada is non compos mentis, and a powerful weapon for any discerning selector.
Rafael Cerato and Haze-M return with three tracks of cosmic ascendancy, exploring strange new sounds and alternate routes to techno mastery. We couldn't wait to get them back on board following the blinding success of last September's Perihelion EP, and the three tracks they've cooked up for us, expectedly, take it far beyond the next level.
The philanthropic imprint Lost On You are back with another three-tracker to shift the dynamics in spaces bigger than the club. Conjured up by Patrick Kunkel and TYGR TYGR for techno's newest renegade label, the Accrescent EP opens its battle-scarred arms and welcomes you to the beating heart of acid techno. Kunkel and TYGR TYGR have spun up a chugging three-tracker of techno and acid sounds, continuing the unstoppable streak of a label that's blazing its way through the electronic music landscape with the ferocity of the hardest dancefloor weapons. Lost On You's commitment to top-notch music, showcasing emerging talent and helping thousands in poverty worldwide is admirable, and the EP on display here only reflects that enduring commitment. As well as giving your USB a system upgrade, every track downloaded goes towards life-changing initiatives in Africa and beyond - do we need to say more?
The latest in a flurry of sublime Lost On You releases comes from Turkish producers Lunar Plane, who join techno's first completely philanthropic label for three tracks teeming in dark, menacing sounds for the dancefloor. The Durga EP signals a more refined direction for Lost On You that takes in all the late-night techno sensibilities you've come to expect and injects them with a hard dose of Eastern spirituality, making for a versatile three-tracker that gives the tools to raise the room.
