Lone "Dream Ache"
It's looking like 2014 is already off to a fine start, especially when one considers that it's two days into the new year and already Lone has elected to give away a free track. "Dream Ache" is a half-time sonic adventure steeped in the type of galactic waves and misty star dust that frequently mark the London producer's tracks. During the three-plus-minute tune, Lone lets loose a stream of laser-sharp synth melodies, tight hand percussion, and (right after the three-minute mark) some deliciously detuned synth chords—all of which help the slow-moving shuffle continually push forward. Though not a brand-new track ("Dream Ache" was actually first heard in Rustie's 2012 Essential Mix), this previously unreleased production from Lone is certainly a good way to start off the New Year.
