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". The album was released on R&S Records on 16 June 2014 on vinyl record and compact disc.

Reality Testing turns out to be both a left turn and a back-to-basics move. Largely abandoning rave’s 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. His touch is distinctive and generous-the Lone remix of Radiohead’s The King of Limbs cut Feral wrung benevolence out of that album’s most abstract, slight track-and here his jams run free, from the delectable yo-yo synth line that crashes through the head-nod of Meeker Warm Energy to the sparkling pan pipes that whirl around the speedy house.

Lone - Reality Testing After his string of retro-rave ple Crush" and "Crystal Caverns 1991" among them-it was easy to forget that Matt Cutler started out making dayglo hip-hop. That influence reared its head with last year's "Airglow Fires," combining the showy 3D textures of his 2012 album Galaxy Garden with the shuffle of his older work. But he comes closer to sitting still on Reality Testing than he has in a while. The album may lack the tireless rush Cutler honed so well in the last few years, but everyone needs a break once in a while. Instead, it shows him settling into a state of deep contentment, evoking the same warm and fuzzy feeling you get from throwing on a record that you know inside and out. Published, Mon, 16 Jun 2014.

Lone announced his new album today. It's called 'Reality Testing' and is released on CD/LP and digital on 16/06/14. We can't wait for people to hear it in full, it's a really beautiful album. The tracklist is below, and album track '2 Is 8' is streaming on youtube and soundcloud. 01 First Born Seconds 02 Restless City 03 Meeker Warm Energy 04 Aurora Northern Quarter 05 2 Is 8 06 Airglow Fires 07 Coincidences 08 Begin to Begin 09 Jaded 10 Vengeance Video 11 Stuck 12 Cutched Under.

Surprisingly, this is exactly what Reality Testing ends up sounding like, a mixed bag of house and hip-hop beats washed over by the characteristic inoffensive variations of different synths playing 7th chords that has been a mainstay of Lone’s sound since he started putting out music.

Now, Lone returns with his new album Reality Testing, which we're pleased to bring you the premiere of in full. If Galaxy Garden was his insistent forward-thrust into the world, Reality Testing sees Lone find a spot, lean back and take it all in. The 90s rave influences of previous years have ebbed away, and in their place another sort of personal nostalgia; a rediscovery of hip hop that shows Lone at his most considered, and makes Reality Testing a genuine delight to hear. You can stream the album in full and read our interview with the man himself below. THUMP: It's hard to belive.
