InnerShawnti I got to experience some of this album live, when Lone came to Toronto! It was so unreal hearing Sleepwalkers live! 😍😍😍
Sea of tranquility is where my soul loves to return back to, always. It feels quite like home. Stunning album! Favorite track: Sea Of Tranquility.

sergentor Short, sweet, just perfect in every regard. The first two tracks Alpha Wheel and Backtail was Heavy harken back to early 90's English Hardcore Techno/ Jungle /proto Drum & Bass. So they fit in perfectly with any set adding that much needed umph to kick energy levels into over drive. I like that Lone explores the melodic sides of techno, ambient, down tempo/Hip hop as well. Really a worthy addition to have in anyone's record bag, collection, dj set etc. Favorite track: Alpha Wheel.

about

Lone AKA Matt Cutler presents his sixth album ‘Levitate’ – which marks a point of departure from the inviting warmth of ‘Reality Testing’s blend of hip hop and house.

The listener is taken on a rapid joy ride through breakbeats that at times will leave them gasping.

Following the blockbuster success of previous album ‘Reality Testing’ (and it’s all conquering single ‘Airglow Fires’), Cutler was left at somewhat of a musical impasse – a six month dry period with no new inspiration that was showing no signs of abating.

The ‘epiphany’ moment came, during an enforced short break from touring in New York. Bed ridden and feverish for days Cutler started to hallucinate;

“It was pretty terrifying – I’d try to go to sleep and I’d be hearing these mad rave tunes form in my head. When i recovered i was left with all these ideas for fast, feverish tunes. Following that we went to LA and hung out with friends, driving round all day in the baking sun playing these jungle and hardcore edits – all the best bits from rare jungle tunes, spliced together… There was something that really seemed to fit hearing these ridiculously energetic tracks whilst speeding around LA under perfect blue skies, that was amazingly similar to the music I’d been dreaming up whilst in New York. I couldn’t wait to get home and start putting this together – I had a new theme.”

The resulting 9 track LP, a breakneck psychedelic journey through hardcore, jungle, ambient, clocks in at a fat-free 34 minutes –

“After making a record as mellow as ‘Reality Testing’ it was important to me to not repeat myself – I wanted it to be an intense blast”

Evident in the “punch in the face” heaviness of ‘Alpha Wheel’ and ‘Back Tail Was Heavy’ ‘Levitate’ is in many ways a spikier and more confrontational record than it’s predecessor, and all the better for it – however there are moments of familiarity, like the blissed out club bounce of ‘Vapour Trail’ (sharing DNA with perennial fan fave ‘Pineapple Crush’) and pause for breath in the hypnotic beauty of ‘Morning Birds’ and ‘Breeze Out’.

‘Levitate’ finds an inspired Cutler at his most energetic peak delivering a stunning record which feels both vital and contemporary.
