about

"Kayla's Lullaby feat. Kalispell (MIKNNA Remix)" combines the pop sensibility of Lost Midas' original recording with the instinctual production style of MIKNNA; a talented alternative R&B duo made up of producer Ken Nana and hypnotic vocalist Mike B. The duo create a downtempo bass music rework by chopping up vocal harmonies and moody synth textures to perfectly frame Trikakis' empathic lyrics, which take the perspective of a father explaining to his daughter why he and her mother can no longer be together. "Despite him not being around as much anymore, he reassures her that he will always love her", says Trikakis.
Long-time friends, Lost Midas and MIKNNA have mutually admired each other's work for some time, their musical paths crossing frequently in the creative Hollywood area and leading to collaborations, as seen on buoyant footwork cut "San Jacinto feat. Ken Nana", a highlight on the 'Undefined' album which grew from a session with Ken Nana. When approaching this latest remix Trikakis recalls: "MIKNNA approached me about the remix, as they were fans of the original song. They've done an amazing job with the remix. I'm a fan."
Born and raised in L.A., duo MIKNNA (aka vocalist Mike B. and producer Ken Nana) have individually and collectively produced songs with Terrace Martin, Far East Movement, Big KRIT and Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals. Since releasing their first EP "50/50 (Side A)" in late 2016, the pair continue to break down barriers and blend genres with their name brand electro-soul sound which saw their debut single "Ness" championed by the likes of EARMILK, and rack up 2+ Million Spotify streams.
Lost Midas is the project of producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jason Trikakis, who though originally from Boston is now firmly rooted in LA - a city which fascinates and frustrates in equal measure, and whose contrasts and extremes heavily influence his sound. "It can be a shallow, lonely place; when you finally find authenticity, you don't let it go", he elaborates. "The musicians I've collaborated with on this record are some of the most genuine people I know". He developed much of the material which appears on 'Undefined' with the help of friend Josh Wood - an in-demand songwriter and arranger whose major collaborations include projects for Janet Jackson, Pitbull and Krewella.
