The UK-based producer Matt Cutler (a.k.a. Lone) doesn't disappoint. His two full-length albums--works easily reminiscent of Boards of Canada and Flying Lotus--his 12" single for Werk Discs, and even his unreleased material offer herky-jerky beats, lilting melodies, and a warm production aesthetic that are consistently challenging and enjoyable. Not long after releasing his sophomore album, the engrossing and funky Ecstasy and Friends, Lone has put together a special mix for UK music rag FACT.

Lone once posted to his Twitter feed that he is "shit at interviews and recording mixes." It's a self-deprecating statement that has little basis in reality, as the young, talented beatsmith has already crafted a great mix  for XLR8R, not to mention the intelligent interview he did for URB recently, and the warbling beats he put together for FACT's ongoing mix series just about out-do his previous efforts.

Lone's FACT Mix 120 starts off hazy and slow before introducing the incendiary vocals of Ghostface Killah. Tenacious rhymes soon give way to wonky instrumental hip-hop beats, warped pop songs, small bits of futuristic house tunes, and tracks from Lone and his like-minded peers (Bibio, Mike Slott, and Samiyam). It's an eclectic sampling of Lone's best elements, and it's only available for free download for three weeks.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
