LONE (SAT)United Kingdom
With a sound that joyrides through breakbreat, hip hop and house, Lone is riding the wave of new album Levitate all the way to his Clockenflap debut.
Ever since the release of his second album, Lemurian, in 2008, Matt Cutler (aka Lone) has been at the forefront of the British electronic music scene, with his imaginative reworking of sun-drenched samples becoming a calling card. The ensuing five years have seen him release five more albums, including this summer’s excellent Levitate, and explore the point where hip hop, breakbeat and various other electronic genres converge. Lone can count former Clockenflap headliner Azealia Banks among his biggest fans, and the two have collaborated together on a string of tracks. Like Banks in 2012, Lone is destined to win over a whole new legion of fans at this year’s festival.
