Playing tracks by
Lone and Midland.
Matt Cutler aka Lone surfaced from his bedroom into wider recognition in 2008 with the release of his dream-hop debut opus Lemurian on Nottingham’s Dealmaker. Referencing early 90s hardcore raves, Madlib-inspired hip hop and tropical beaches far from the British Midlands, Lone’s musical style characteristically envisages places you could never imagine, taking the listener beyond his immediate reality. He contributed remixes for Warp’s Bibio and was picked up by Actress’ label Werk Discs for the sun-drenched Ecstasy And Friends album. In 2010 Lone perfected a heavier rave sound with tracks such as Once In A While and Pineapple Crush, releasing more music on Werk Discs, R&S, as well as his own label, Magic Wire Recordings.
