Over the course of his career, he's received numerous industry accolades including two Grammy nominations, an Emmy nomination, and was part of a team that won a 2021 Oscar. He's served as product ambassador for over 90 major technology and audio companies ranging from INTEL, ROLAND, and SAMSUNG to SONY, MICROSOFT, and YAMAHA. His contributions to the frequently-used sound libraries, plugins, and hardware around the industry have ensured his fingerprint is on the music throughout media around the world and even crafted sound effects for various versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system.

His solo works include the award-winning SYNAESTHESIA and WHITE RABBIT ASYLUM albums, the latter which serves as a music library for horror films and games. His dark symphonic suite, AND NOW WE SEE BUT THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY, enjoyed hundreds of millions of downloads. In 2019, he completed his landmark project, BLACK FOX SOCIETY, a cinematic construction kit and prolific sequel to WHITE RABBIT ASYLUM, for which he traveled the world to collect samples of all kinds to craft into a massive library of complex ambient loops and unique beats. He's also released several albums in his LORD RETRO series of game- and anime-inspired symphonic suites and collaborated with a classical violinist on SOMNIFERIOUS.

A fan of the horror genre, Lassen was tapped to produce albums inspired by Clive Barker's MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN and I, FRANKENSTEIN. He was also brought on to remix music from the UNDERWORLD film series and contributed a remix of the iconic JAWS theme to the SHARKNADO 3 soundtrack . Lassen's work in videogames began with the horror game OUT OF HELL and the indie title HERBERT THE MISANTHROPIC FLY. Further in the videogame space, he's contributed to Konami's OTOMEDIUS EXCELLENT alongside top industry talent from Japan and around the globe and contributed to the Korean real-time strategy game MINIMAX TINYVERSE. He served as audio director for the Emmy-nominated SPIDERMAN: HOMECOMING VR experience and has provided sound design to numerous projects ranging from MONSTER JAM to Qualcomm's SPACEDOCK SHOOTING GALLERY. Lassen's career has taken him to other interesting avenues for his music, including providing music for X-FILES pachinko machines in Japan and writing demo tracks included in musical software suites across the music industry. An avid participant in the fan community, Lassen also contributed regularly to remix projects on OVERCLOCKED REMIX and to Scarlet Moon's Christmas album series.
