Known to his friends and family as Matt Cutler, Lone started life as a bedroom child producer in Nottignham experimenting with Hip Hop, early 90s Hardcore, Techno and Electronic music for years before dropping his lush, dream-hop début opus ‘Lemurian’ on local label Dealmaker back in 2008 to critical acclaim from all areas of the industry including a top 10 of the year slot from Bleep, props from Kode9, Rustie, James Holden and countless others.
This was quickly followed by a remix on Warp records for Bibio and a deal with Actress’ London label Werk Discs where he released the follow up album ‘Ecstasy & Friends’ which merged an endless range of styles including 80s funk, 90s hip hop and his trademark hazy, sun drenched melodies inspired by long time heroes Boards Of Canada.
With his warped out sound locked down by 2009, Lone has switched things up for ’10, concentrating on a much heavier Chicago house / Techno and early 90’s London rave sound aimed at destroying parties while simultaneously staying true to his beautiful, nostalgic melodic style. With the Kode 9 backed ‘Once In A While’ tune about to drop on Werk Discs and ‘Pineapple Crush’ coming on his own Magic Wire label, support from artists and DJ’s such as Mr Scruff, Mu-Ziq, Glasgow’s LuckyMe crew, Machine Drum, Falty DL and Rinse FM’s Alex Nut – Lone is one of the most exciting young producers out there, and certainly one to watch for the future.
