Logic Lost is the moniker of Jakartan electronic experimental artist Dylan Amirio. Started during his college years in Australia in 2012, his foray into electronic music came after spending days holed up in his bedroom and immersing himself in the music of Oneohtrix Point Never and a lot of manga comics, eventually building a trove of ideas.
Soundwise, Logic Lost’s electronica has been described as ambient, drone, big beat and even showed tinges of hip hop and RnB. Some of the influences include: Four Tet, Oneohtrix Point Never, Jon Hopkins, Boards of Canada, Tim Hecker, Jamie xx and Fennesz.
Despite the influences, Logic Lost has no desire to become his inspirations and wants to pave his own path.
Basically, Dylan started Logic Lost as a way to express his pent-up emotions and reactions to his environment from the bottom of his heart. Making music to him is a form of releasing the demons that has been inhibiting his development as a person for the past 15 years or so.
Logic Lost’s first full-length album Runaway was released in 2015 under Bandung label Orange Cliff Records. Since then, he has released 2 more EPs: TT02 under Tandem Tapes and If I Trust You in 2017 under DEAD Records.
His second album, Forgive Yourself, will be out in July 2018, under Orange Cliff Records as well. Forgive Yourself is described by Dylan as probably “the most personal album he’ll ever make”, as it addresses the emotions and events that had the most significant impact on his psyche.
