Gilles Peterson has turned me onto a long list of deep soulful memorable cuts since I started listening to his radio show on BBC four or five years ago. This past Saturday afternoon, he opened up his three-hour set with this captivating number, which he described as “hi-tech jazz.” On “Airglow Fires,” Lone offers a refined balance of musical depth and dance-floor appeal. It will be released on R&S on July 14th.
We have been following Lone–a.k.a Matt Cutler of Nottingham–since Emerald Fantasy Tracks, his second full-length, released via Magic Wire. The new single “Airglow Fires” follows up his first full-length for R&S Records entitled Galaxy Garden. One of the stand-out cuts from Galaxy Garden you might remember is “Crystal Caverns 1991.”
