It’s Friday so we’re listening to something more upbeat. We’re playing music from Lone, the Nottingham-based dance music producer. Lone’s music runs the electronic music gamut, incorporating hip-hop, house, drum-n-bass, acid, rave, and techno. But the throughline is his heavy use of well-chosen samples, which give off a sunny, euphoric feeling. We’ve included three albums that lean into house, hip-hop, and drum-n-bass styles respectively. But he's also an excellent DJ, so we’ve included his BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix from last year and his set for Four Heads from three days ago. Lone’s also released several singles recently, which you can find at his Bandcamp.

Have a nice Friday and great weekend.
