Lifetracks is the debut solo album by respected British electronica artist Tom Middleton, released in the UK on October 1, 2007 and the US on November 6, 2007 (see 2007 in music). The title is a reference to representing different places, times, and people in the artist's life. The majority of songs on the album have appeared on compilations over the last ten years, under the moniker AMBA, which was Middleton's previous ambient project. The song "Shinkansen" refers to the Japanese bullet train of the same name. The song "St. Ives Bay" refers to an area in the artist's home region of Cornwall, England. Tom Middleton is notable for building a worldwide reputation as one of the most eclectic DJs on the dance music scene. He started his career in the early 1990s as the partner of Richard D. James, better known as Aphex Twin, then branched out on his own to form the electronica duo Global Communication, among others with fellow musician Mark Pritchard.
