"Airglow Fires" is the first new Lone material to emerge since his masterful Galaxy Garden album, his most complete body of work to date.
Departing from the themes of the rave/hardcore revival and cinematic interstellar travel, "Airglow Fires" sees him exploring a more considered and intimate sound alongside a rediscovered love of classic hip-hop, as he explains, "I love hip hop and house music when it's at its rawest - to me "Airglow Fires" has that kind of 90s basement vibe to it, where the lines between the two genres are kind blurred."
As a comeback single, "Airglow Fires" has certainly been worth the wait - arriving just in time to surely nestle its way into all discerning DJs' record boxes this summer - from the opening celestial melodies to the insistent processions of jazz inflected chords, dance around the crunchy proto house drums, that shuddering sub bass- it's obvious that this track has golden sunshine in its DNA.
On the flip, "Begin To Begin" explores similar territory to "Airglow Fires" but wears its charms in a more subdued, but no less infectious manner - a repeating hypnotic chord stab, draped with burbling synth melodies and yet more tough drums combine for a sumptuous and mesmeric listen - as the song says, "Am I dreaming? Am I awake?" - with music like this to soundtrack your dreams, who would want to wake up?
