I make commercial, top 40 sounding pop music, taking from rock, R&B, alternative and dance, and offer producing, remixing and mixing/mastering services. My biggest achievement so far is that I wrote, produced, mixed and mastered a 9 track album for pop singer Mickey Taylor in approx. 2 months, which peaked at #43 on the UK iTunes Pop Album Chart.
I'm a gay singer/songwriter with 5 EPs of predominantly self-written, all self-produced material under my belt. I am a 10+ years user of Logic, currently using Logic X, with experience recording and mixing my own and others vocals.
I pride myself on my ability to produce melodies and chord sequences that are both unusual and commercial. I've also written top lines for artists to sing based on their specific lyrical brand.
My history of writing and producing music began in my bedroom, making music for no one in particular for years, inspired by acts ranging from Radiohead to The 1975 to Madonna (80s!) to Sade. One day I wrote a song and made a video for my first single “Town”, a song about growing up gay in the middle of nowhere. I put it up on the internet, and got tens of thousands of views and messages from people who could relate to the message.
My songs unique mix of darkness and commericality have allowed me to be booked to support fellow pop acts Tiffany, Betty Who, Dragonette, Todrick Hall and Frankmusik and well as having been booked on Prides in both the UK and the US.
I make music for anyone who struggles with low self esteem, feels disconnected or rejected, or like an outsider.

We worked on a remix and I'm happy with the outcome. In the making process, I've learned to know Lostchild as a very kind and approachable professional. He listens to (and act upon) every feedback I gave him and he always asked for feedback in return. Great experience.
Joe is amazing. I don't know how he did it but he produced an amazing song out of my little tune very quickly and with such care and detail. Thank you Joe!
Another smash with Lostchild. I literally went into every fine detail of the instrumental and the mixing which he managed to nail. Second song with him done and more to go. I gave him some of the most abstract explanations and he still managed to get exactly what I want because he is THAT good. Recommend times 100.
Joe never disappoints! Always a pleasure working with him- the process is very easy and seemless. Would definitely love to work with him again as we have worked with him for 3 consecutive projects.
Could not have found a better producer to help me create my first song. He is: Professional. Talented. Patient. Understanding. All in all... amazing!!!
Always an amazing experience working with Lostchild! Great communicator, easy to work with, and delivers incredible mixes.I highly highly highly recommend working with Lostchild on your next project.
Lostchild is a very talented, creative producer. This was our first time working together but we've already started a new project ! Lostchild made all my little edits with such a great attitude, and even brought fresh ideas to the table. Such a pleasure to work with -- I can't recommend Lostchild enough !
I feel very lucky to have found someone who understands my vibrancy for pop music so much. More so, LostChild is a masterful composer of dance music. If you're looking for ear-catching production, arrangements that will help cement a hook into your listerener's brain then LostChild is where you want to look!
Lostchild is an amazing producer! His element is truly pop but if you ask him to venture into another genre, he can make magic happen. He’s adaptable and will go the extra mile and make 110 edits in order to deliver on your expectations. He fills in the gaps where you’re not sure how to approach a part of the song or you’ve got a bit of writers block. He’s ridiculously efficient at getting things done. You can be sure he’ll get back to in mere moments which really shows up some past producers.
Lostchild delivers amazing quality mixes very fast and he is super flexible and patient with requests
Excellent service at a reasonable price. He created a modern pop track that sounds very marketable. And also was wiling to make adjustments based on my feedback without hesitation. Highly recommended.
First time working with Lostchild and it was a great experience! Good communication and positive vibes all the way through the process. Always going the extra mile to make sure I was happy with the end result. I will definitely be looking for opportunities to work with Lostchild again in the future.
Always a pleasure to work with Lostchild. What a talent! Took my songs to a whole other level. x
Premium. Pop. That's what Lostchild gives every single track I put him on. He understands the vision and takes time to bring out the most compassionate story telling of any piece of music he works with! He understands pop music and dance pristinely!
We've worked with Lostchild before and we're always extremely happy with the work he does- even from the first draft! Very professional, extremely flexible, and easy to communicate changes with. He will not stop until you're completely happy with your mix!
He is an amazing producer! He mixed and mastered my song the way I had In mind without me even telling him. We clicked very nicely and he’s very sweet. I will continue to work with him!
Working with Lostchild is a wondrous experience. In addition to doing great work, they were always open to discuss any questions I had, whether about the track or the music industry in general, and were quick to implement feedback and send updated mixes. Lostchild is extremely caring, thoughtful, and always brings a sense of positive energy that really helped me gain the confidence to move forward with my music. 10/10 recommend.
Stunning work. Pretty fast and very communicative producer. Will definitely work with him again!
I was most blown away by the risk that Lostchild took with the production on my song and it worked out in the absolute best way! He has brilliant knack for pop production. He's very kind to work with and patient. If you're looking for an earnest and exciting music experience, go with him!
Always a pleasure to work with him! Very determined and patient to get a great outcome for both of us. Would definitely work with him again.

Lostchild UK did such an incredible job mixing my vocals and blew me away with his quick delivery, response time, and understanding of exactly what I was looking for. Can't recommend enough! Looking forward to working with Lostchild again in the future :)
Lostchild UK was the PERFECT guy for my project. Communication was great and he really understood what was needed to make my song better. Highly recommend!
Joe gave my track the edge and production quality to push it to the next level. The details and effects he uses are unique and exciting, and he's super chill to work with!

Absolutely amazing. Thank you so much for your help!
Flawless production from an incredibly talented guy. Joe took my ideas and dry stems and turned it into something amazing, MASSIVE sounding tracks. Really easy to work with, super fast and took on board all feedback with humility. Great at adding all the production extras and ambience that I simply didn't have the skill for. Would highly recommend Joe to anyone.
Working with Joe is amazing! Not only he is able to adapt to your style but he is also a brilliant and talented artist able to make your song unique. If you are reading this I wouldn't hesitate to start working with him! :)
LostChild is extremely talented!! He understood my style so well and was so creative with the track. He was extremely collaborative and went with every idea I had in the most generous and exciting way. He works so insanely fast and responds so quickly. A legend!!
A truly genius
I had so much fun working with LOSTCHILD. I adore the track we developed together and can't wait to work with him again! Really talented producer
LostChild is a fantastic producer, he adapts to your vision, doesn’t matter if your style is more indie or more commercial, he can work with both. I was very surprised by the sound quality of the instruments and I appreciate the speed of the delivery.
Of course I will work with him on more tracks.
I'm so excited to work with you
LostChild is a real artist, someone passionate by what he does! I worked twice with him on projects and he understood me so well and created two bops for me. He also works extremely fast and very professional. Looking forward to do more magic with this talented artist!
Lostchild does such an incredible job to turn your songs into something that's better than you could have ever imagined, not only is he incredibly talented but is also a very down to earth person. He also works really hard on your project until you both are more than happy with it, and will always work to the best of his ability to make sure your songs have a timeless concept to them. If your looking for someone who is just as passionate as you and will see your project to the very end, then needless to say Lostchild is where you need to go
Incredibly kind and professional!! Very talented, has an excellent ear, and has an extremely fast turnaround time! You won't regret working with him!!
I’ve commissioned Lostchild to make 3 remixes of my songs and was the best decision ever! The remixes are just so fabulous, so well produced and people adore them. They really helped take my music to new audiences and the next level.
Joe is a total joy to work with, professional, talented and open minded. We have so much fun making music and I would 100% recommend!
There is NEVER a dull moment. Guaranteed. It doesn't feel like hard work. The detail that's put in the production is admirable. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
When I worked with Lostchild, I had come from a string of dodgy and unreliable producers and Joe has given me faith in producers again! He is communicative and takes on the artists vision openly and willingly. Whenever I have asked for something particularly outrageous, he will always try to make it work and at the same time giving his honest opinion. True professionalism and a delight to work with!
Lostchild is professional and a one of the kind creative, sure to help you bring to life your vision and music. ❤️
I’ve worked with Lostchild on many occasions for different songs. He works quickly and effectively but is also patient and understanding throughout the process. Lostchild is super passionate and enthusiastic, but most of all FUN. I don’t think I’ve had a session yet where there hasn’t been belly laughter! I continue to work with Lostchild to this day and would definitely recommend his services to anyone.
Interview with Lostchild UK
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: My biggest achievement so far is that I wrote, produced, mixed and mastered a 9 track album for pop singer Mickey Taylor in approx. 2 months, which peaked at #43 on the UK iTunes Pop Album Chart.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: A mixture of the two! I like a mix of live and electronic sounds.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Can I make a song that sounds like 'this' song... the answer is yes! I can easily emulate the sound of another song whilst having enough of my own touch to keep it fresh.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That a producer is very set in stone with the sound he does. Not true with me! I like all kinds of pop music, commercial and alternative, and love to jump from genre to genre on different projects.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I specialise in commercial, often dark, electronic pop with 80s influences, and have experience working on atmospheric R&B.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: What about something for you? :-)
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will make something for you that I love just as much as you do.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love a singer's reactions when they hear their song come to life.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I ask them for some sound references and influences and about the meaning and mood of the song itself.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Don't be afraid to be brutally honest. If you don't get that rush of joy when you listen to something I've done for you, it's not there yet. I turn around productions very quickly, and I can completely reinvent a track very easily if you let me know what you don't like.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My Electric Guitar, Macbook Pro, Midi Keyboard, Microphone and KRK Speakers. My home set up is simple and all I need. Although this isn't including the power generator I'd need as there are no outlets on a desert island... right?!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been a music producer for 10 years. I started out as a producer for other singers, then had some success as a solo artist the past 4 years, whilst still focusing on remixes, productions and having fun.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Emotional, commercial electronic pop, with retro influences.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: The Weeknd would be amazing to work with, because so much of his sound has an extremely dark, hard edge but is ultra-melodic at the same time, and this combination of ideas and sounds is where I shine.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always love what you do. If you aren't passionate about it, you can't expect anyone else to be.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Chords and melody. I love taking a song and bringing it to life with counter melodies and moving chords.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Melody, atmosphere, groove and fun! All my songs stand out for being super melodic, whilst still maintaining that commercial edge.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I normally ask the singer for whatever they have so far, and I make a full demo production and send it back for notes. I work well remotely, and am happy to make as many changes as needed.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio set up is simple. I have a recent model MacBook Pro, with Logic Pro X, a midi-keyboard, an electric guitar (Patrick Eggle), an Ibanez acoustic guitar, and an SE2200a Microphone, and KRK Rokit 5 speakers.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am inspired by Frankmusik for having creative control over every aspect of his music, and working hard to continue making the music he loves. I have also got lifetime respect for Madonna for constantly pushing boundaries in an industry that has always been determined to take her down.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I make melodic yet dark electronic pop productions at a low cost for singers, including original compositions and remixes. I work very closely with singers in making sure every detail is exactly as they would like it. I also offer advice and help with recording vocals and with writing lyrics.
