The Count & Sinden "Addicted to You (Lone Remix)"
Man, are we loving the new rave-leaning sound that Lone's been working with lately. Nottingham-based producer Matt Cutler (pictured above) has switched out the slowed-down, hazy beatscapes of his notable Ecstasy & Friends and Lemurian albums for a quicker-paced dance sound, which he's now releasing on his own label, Magic Wire. We're happy to see the style also remains within his musical canon when it comes to remixes. Lone's re-work of The Count & Sinden's "Addicted to You" is full of heavy percussion, '90s-rave synths, soulfully tweaked vocal samples, and a steady four-on-the-floor beat. The whole thing is brimming with an unbridled energy and glowing enthusiasm that is simultaneously naive and self-aware in its 'I'm just dancing with my eyes closed, but isn't it so much fun?' motif. We sincerely hope Lone's dance party never stops. The "Addicted to You" single will be released on November 9, and The Count & Sinden's Mega Mega Mega album is out now.
