Simon William Lord is an English musical composer, record producer and musician. Lord was a member of the group Simian and now produces music as Lord Skywave.[1] He is one half of The Black Ghosts, and records with the producer Lukid as Arclight.[2]

Lord Skywave[edit]

Lord's 'Lord Skywave' album borrowed from the creativity of his family, using the Lord Skywave synthesizer his father, Jeremy Lord, built and compositions by his grandmother Madeleine Dring. It received very positive reviews, with an 8/10 from NME and 4/5 from Mojo, who described Lord as possessing "nu soul vocal talent to rival Jamie Lidell".[3] Gigwise said the album is "refined, inventive and persistently unyielding".[4] Lord Skywave has been remixed by TRG, Andy George and Various Production[5] who produced a second, unreleased remix.[6]
