We’re welcoming the inimitable Nottingham-born producer Lone onto the decks this week for a special live performance. Fresh off the back of his latest EP released on the same day, ‘Natural Aerials’, the DJ and producer heads into the Lab spinning breaks, synth-packed tracks, and - pushing the BPM a little further - jungle and old skool rave. Lone’s latest release is a collaborative track with footwork specialist SHERELLE who expertly reworks ‘Visited By Astronauts’ with a “space-age twist”.
First making his solo alias in 2007, Lone went on to release his own edition of DJ-Kicks, worked alongside the likes of Azealia Banks, and released over a dozen albums and EPs during that time. His last full-length record, ‘Always Inside Your Head’, marked a change for the producer as he began using vocals for the first time and released the 10-tracker through a new label. “I wanted to approach a range of different styles but attack them from their angle in a way, so for example on 'Inlove2', I tried to imagine what a Balearic / acid house tune might sound like if it were produced by Kevin Shields”, he said. Catch Lone perform a special live set in the Lab this week and sign up for guestlist here.
