Lone Gives Away ‘Dream Ache’
One of the hottest producers over the last few years has undoubtedly been the Manchester based Lone. From exploring the themes of the rave/hardcore revival and cinematic interstellar travel, the talented young artist really impressed us with his last 2 albums and has then again this year when undertaking a new challenge for his EP ‘Airglow Fires’ which made it into our top 20 tracks of the year.
This release saw Lone return to old Belgian stomping ground R+S and showcased his exploration of a more considered and intimate sound alongside a rediscovered love of classic hip-hop, as he explained “I love hip hop and house music when it’s at it’s rawest – to me ‘Airglow Fires’ has that kind of 90’s basement vibe to it, where the lines between the two genres are kind blurred”. We were fans of Lone long before this though and helping us welcome in 2014 in some style the producer has seen fit to treat fans to a free download of his track ‘Dream Aches’.
Whilst this is the first proper airing of the track online especially astute listeners may recall that the dreamy number featured on Rustie’s Essential Mix back in 2012. Check it out below:
