Lorn (aka Marcos Ortega) is an American electronic musician. His music style is dark and ambient, using electronic beats inspired by computer sounds and 8-bit video games. The name also means lonely and abandoned, which is the best way to classify his music. Not much is known about his personal life and he tends to market himself through brooding publicity photos.
It's not known if Lorn is from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, or central Illinois. He early exposure came about as a DJ due to his remix of "Better Than" by grime artist Jammer. In 2009, Lorn signed up with Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder label. He subsequently released his debut, Nothing Else, in June 2010. He released his second album, Ask The Dust, on Ninja Tune in 2012.
