Whether its his long-standing love of 90s hip hop, passing penchant for the bright lights and sounds of hardcore or career defining old school house releases, Lone’s music is steeped in nostalgia. His latest single, ‘Backtail was Heavy’, was released via a landline phone number and old fashioned flyer, clip art and all… but it’s not the quirks that have gained Nottingham born Matt Cutler his following. Cutler teases a dance floor ready sound from the in-between places of your consciousness, making you feel warm and fuzzy without quite knowing why.
Prolific from an early age with six album releases to his name, it was the last two long-players - the sweet as candy ‘Galaxy Garden’ and dusty hip-house hitter ‘Reality Testing’ - which caught the ear of the critics and truly brought Lone’s sound to the masses.
Whilst Lone’s sampled and swinging beats speak for themselves, it can’t have hurt to be vindicated by signing with the prestigious R&S Records, where house tracks go to become house classics. This was exactly the fate reserved for his 2013 R&S release ‘Airglow Fires’, one of his best-loved releases to date which captures everything we love about the old school house revival of the last few years and was quickly filed under ‘classic’ in the proverbial music shelves of all.
Lone brings his grooves to Patterns in Brighton at the end of May, don’t miss the chance to get your house on like it’s 1999.
