Gilles Peterson // Worldwide Awards 2015 // Introducing LONE
December 22, 2014
Known to his friends and family as Matt Cutler, Lone started life as a bedroom child producer in Nottignham experimenting with Hip Hop, early 90s Hardcore, Techno and Electronic music for years before dropping his lush, dream-hop début opus ‘Lemurian’ on local label Dealmaker back in 2008 to critical acclaim from all areas of the industry including a top 10 of the year slot from Bleep, props from Kode9, Rustie, James Holden and countless others. This was quickly followed by a remix on Warp records for Bibio and a deal with Actress’ London label Werk Discs where he released the follow up album ‘Ecstasy & Friends’ which merged an endless range of styles including 80s funk, 90s hip hop and his trademark hazy, sun drenched melodies inspired by long time heroes Boards Of Canada.
Where in the world…
…are you now?
Sat in my little studio in East London. Heating on full blast, drinking coffee and working on a remix.
The small town i grew up in, funnily enough. Walking in the woods always gives me a ton of ideas.
…have you done your best performance?
Tokyo a couple of months ago. Played at the liquid rooms during the RBMA… The crowd were the most up for it I’d ever experienced and that just fuelled us completely. Will remember that for a long time to come
…has the best food?
L.A. maybe? Mexican food out there is pretty special. Either that or Tokyo.
…has the cutest boys / girls?
Cutest girls – London, no contest.
…do you go to escape?
…do you most want to go?
how many languages can you say hello in? and can you prove it?
Can barely manage the one sometimes I’m afraid. Hello !?
