Boomkat Product Review:
A star of PAN’s Mono No Aware bliss-out, Malibu, makes a gorgeous inverted trance turn as DJ Lostboi with the balmy introspection of their Got Lost EP, a self-released ace.
Perfectly modest and beautifully emotive, Got Lost says its piece in quietly subtle but heart-wrenchingly melodic gestures that catch us out every time, and has become a go-to release for those moments when you don’t really want to think about or do anything other than let yourself be enchanted.
In its delicate and effectively abstract simplicity, Got Lost feels counter to the chaos of the world around us, breezily flowing from the spine-checking acoustic guitar and processed glossolalia of Little Prince to the shivering harp strings of D Major XO Life, before making us well up with the Ian Van Dahl nod of Love Spiral Downwards and slipping off into the kinda gesture that would make Boothroyd blush on If I Should Die, and the sadboy diamond Join Me (Raw).
Exclusive to this edition of the release is the jaw-trembling Torus remix of D Bonus Track XO Torus Llif3, featuring the Dutch producer whisking the OG into a neatly circumvented trance peak.
