Lone: Galaxy Garden
Buy! - (R&S)
The 5th LP (and debut for the highly-revered R & S imprint) from UK-based electronic producer Matt Cutler (aka Lone) witnesses another shift in his sound, this time taking the varied vintage throwback style of last year’s Emerald Fantasy Tracks and focusing primarily on colorful, euphoric, hi-NRG jams indebted to the glory days of acid/rave culture. Featuring two guest spots from fellow chameleonic electronic producer Machinedrum and a lovely vocal turn from Anneka on album closer “Spirals,” Galaxy Garden refreshingly favors bright melodies and kinetic rhythms over the recent trend towards tense, bass-heavy sounds. 5/11/2012 - Alex
