Lost artist login - Can't access my own music

A long while ago (2006 or so) I created a Last.fm artist profile and uploaded my music under the name "Sam Chaney". Tracks included "Hypothermiac" and "Le Jour Electrique" among others.

I cannot seem to access any of this any more since the Last.fm page was revamped and combined with Spotify.

I would like to be able to access this music and edit my profile (or remove it) as it is no longer representative of my musical career. I own the rights to all of this music, would like to be able to download all of the tracks (as I don't have any other copies of them) and then potentially remove or update the artist info and tracks.

Please let me know how I can proceed.

After Last.fm change in 2015, you cannot claim artist's profile page, and this means you can't upload/download music anymore too.

I'm also afraid you cannot delete artists' profile, as Last.fm from beginning used automatically created sites: you could create an artist by scrobbling it, and it lasts forever. It works like huge library summing up whole music industry. But I guess this shouldn't be a problem.

What you can do - you can edit wiki page for your band/project, and write all the things you want people to know. You can also write comments on yours band's shoutbox. These two things can be done as a normal user.
