Stuart Howard is an Essex-based bedroom producer who creates lo-fi electronic music as Lapalux, short for "Lap of Luxury." He started his career releasing short cassettes under that name, with 2008's Forest followed by Many Faces Out of Focus in 2011. The latter was an expressive ambient release that caught the ear of Flying Lotus at Brainfeeder Records, who signed Lapalux to his label for two EPs in 2012, Some Other Time and When You're Gone. The full-length Nostalchic followed in 2013. Second proper album Lustmore, for which he collaborated with vocalists Andreya Triana and Szjerdene, was released in 2015.
