Reality Testing is the sixth album by English electronic musician Lone. It was released in the United Kingdom on 16 June 2014 by R&S Records. Reality Testing focuses on dusty hip-hop grooves of auteurs like J Dilla and Madlib. A review in Pitchfork referred to the album as Largely abandoning raves warp-speed tempos and sensual overload of Galaxy Garden. The album was released on R&S Records on 16 June 2014 on vinyl record and compact disc. Cameron Favorite Lone album. Lone once again shows his musical versatility with Reality Testing.

Reality Testing turns out to be both a left turn and a back-to-basics move. Largely abandoning raves warp-speed tempos and sensual overload, Reality Testing finds Cutler shifting his focus to the dusty hip-hop grooves of auteurs like J Dilla and Madlib, two artists regularly name-checked by European dance producers as formative influences. I've heard comparisons between Reality Testings more explicitly hip-hop-influenced cuts and the work of Wolverhampton producer Stephen Wilkinsons Bibio project. The approach Lone took to his latest record here is shockingly basic, and a disheartening departure from the vibrant, upbeat instrumentals on his. Y'all know this is just my opinion, right What did you think of this album Love it Hate it. He became so adept at creating dancefloor material that Reality Testing comes as something of a surprise. The brightness and sweetness of Cutler's sound remains largely unchanged - and he still incorporates sampled spoken bits - but he decelerates here into relatively restful and restrained material with renewed inspiration from vintage rap production. Reality Testing, while remaining much more grounded in its hip-hop influence, isnt necessarily that far off from the kind of music Cutler has always made. The reused sounds and overreliance on the same compositional and modal techniques that have been mainstays in his aesthetic since the very beginning do nothing more than highlight the fact that there is an obtrusive lack to depth to any of the music contained on the album. It offers nothing more than twelve tracks of agreeable sounds and harmless beats, which is rendered even less effective by the glossy, modern sheen of digital synthesizer. Listen free to Lone Reality Testing First Born Seconds, Restless City and more. 12 tracks 52:20. It's not bad for a track or two, but as a whole 52 minute project, Reality Testing quickly becomes too dull and forgettable to be anything special.

Lone 2 Reality Testing. 장르: Electronic, Hip Hop. 스타일: Bass Music, Breaks, Deep House, Dubstep. 연도: 2014. This is an incredible album, Lone's strongest long player yet. There is a real depth to the album, crossing genres in a cohesive way. Matt Cutler has blends Dilla style beats with a a sheen of coastal sunshine without making it in any way lightweight. Subtle use of field recordings and a nicturnal vibe to some of the tracks give the LP an urban anchor to balance with the gloss and balearic shimmer. A real mastery of light and dark, nowhere better demonstrated than in last years epic 'Airgliw Fires'. Fans of Four Tet, Falty DL as well as Dilla could do worse than buy this
