Playing tracks by
Kona Triangle, Ghostface Killah, Samiyam, Bibio, Mike Slott and more.
Nottingham’s Lone steps up this morning for a FACT mix of fractured hip-hop, pop, funk and more, glowing in sunlight and bleeding colour from every pore.
Lone first came to our attention with last year’s Lemurian album, and his work on Werk Discs last year – both the ‘Joy Reel’ 12” and the full length album that followed it are highly recommended – saw Matt Cutler get even better. With antique arcade games, vintage hip-hop and 80s grooves as its backdrop, said album for Werk, Ecstasy and Friends is a record steeped in childhood nostalgia that recalls Flying Lotus, Dam-Funk, Boards of Canada and more but could only have been made by Lone.
Awesomely mixed with material from Ghostface Killah, Mike Slott, Bibio, Prince and Lone himself, it’s pretty special.
