Released: 16th Jun 2014


Matt Cutler's fifth album under his 'Lone' moniker is a sensuous, immersive, heady experience, & easily his most accomplished & self-contained work to date.

Combined with rhythms that ebb & flow, shifting from propulsive club constructions to beatific coastal hip-hop he sends notes & chords rippling delicately into space before allowing them to disperse, each oozing beautifully away into the background fabric of the music. The hyper-chromatic music of Matt Cutler marks him out as a true impressionist; as 'Lone', he drizzles brightly coloured melody through his tracks with all the reflexive skill of a master painter daubing inks & pigment across paper. Imagine a sunnier J Dilla crossed with some Quantic or Four Tet.
