CMU Approved

Approved: Lone – Crystal Caverns 1991

By | Published on Tuesday 28 February 2012


Last year’s ‘Echolocations EP’ by Lone (aka Manchester-based producer Matt Cutler) was one of the R&S label’s finest ever releases, which is heady praise when you consider the rich heritage of electronic classics in its catalogue.

‘Crystal Caverns 1991’ picks up where ‘Echolocations’ left off. It’s simultaneously brutal and lush, with its aggressive synth stabs (reminiscent of the burgeoning rave/hardcore sound from, well, 1991) juxtaposed with some tight programming and effortlessly interwoven melodies.

Released as a double A-side with ‘Vulcan Mill Acid’ on 26 Mar, it’s taken from the album ‘Galaxy Garden’ which is out in May.

‘Crystal Caverns 1991’ is streaming on Soundcloud now:
