Lone

Lone is a solo producer of electronic soundscapes. He has released his debut album Everything is Changing Colour on vu-us. Eventually he signed to Dealmaker Records and released Lemurian on 1st September 2008. His music is described as “kaleidoscopic, shimmering hip-hop instrumentals that fill your ears with warm nostalgia and sails you away into a nebulae of opiated psychedelia”.

Lone is a solo producer of electronic soundscapes. He has released his debut album Everything is Changing Colour on vu-us. Eventually he signed to Dealmaker Records and released Lemurian on 1st September 2008. His music is described as “kaleidoscopic, shimmering hip-hop instrumentals that fill your ears with warm nostalgia and sails you away into a nebulae of opiated psychedelia”.

"Lone (Matt Cutler) has something that I think is very healthy for an artist to have in this age of myspace music and the vast array of underground labels, and that's a strong identity - I could spot a Lone track by hearing one or two bars, he has a personality in his music that is vivid. I reckon that Lemurian could provoke synaesthetic reactions in those who don't already have the condition, that is, its character seems to extend beyond the sonic domain into some other sensual domain. I think that if Lemurian was a colour, it'd be aquamarine. If it had a smell, it'd be seaweed on the breeze. If it had a taste, it'd be saltwater. If it had a texture, it'd be scratchy coral. 'Sea Spray' is about as fitting a title as you could get for a Lemurian track. As well as filling your ears with faded loungey chords, bursts of weathered VHS strings and Hawaiian musical postcards, Lemurian is caked with the thickest punchiest soulfully - shuffled hip hop beats that would satisfy anyone who simply has to nod their head to enjoy themselves. This is also daydream music, you can't listen to it without going off somewhere. Personally, I slip into the daydream of being sucked into the 80s arcade game 'Outrun' and tearing around a looped pixellated parallel to Miami or some other palm-tree-avenued sea front, with Lemurian pumping out of the car stereo of course." -- Bibio (Warp Records) « hide
