I just stumbled upon this album today, and I can't really believe it took me this long to come across it. In a nutshell, Lone sounds like FlyLo x Boards of Canada with a shitload of ocean mist spraying in your ear. You can't help but daydream when hearing the beats, they're on some hazy nostalgic cloudy memories type of vibe, but mixed with a blunted scuba diving type vibe. Hard to describe. Do yourself a favor and listen. Not a lot of music makes me get off my ass and write about it---this is really good stuff. Highly recommended.
So it's a little tricky to find in the U.S., but I got it through Bleep which worked fine.

And my god, was it worth the wait. This dude's one of my best homies and I still hadn't heard some of the final versions of these jams. Soulbounce 2.1, eeeeewwwwwweeeeeeee. Cop NOW.
Keep your eyes peeled for my man JUJ, and his We.Transmitted.It mix in the near future!
Check the Shlomo shout out in this Flavorwire interview with creator of Friends of Friends Music, Leeor Brown aka Lazy Brow.
More news soon on my very first official release on Friends of Friends. We're looking at a late Fall release date, featuring brand new unheard tracks, and a few remix guests TBA...
How often you hear of female producers? And how often is it that they be MASHIN on all the dudes?? TOKIMONSTA is a perfect example of such. Reppin' the Brainfeeder flag, Toki's not only able to produce gorgeous melodic opium den type jumpoffs, but also bang bang shoot you in the face type shit. Check the first track if you need proof.
This mix is Vol. 3 of Musique Large's LA Mixette series. The blog is run by french producers Fulgeance and Debruit. Toki's also been nice enough to include my track "Hot Boxing The Cockpit" in the mix.
