In 1998 I had the insanely exciting opportunity to get signed to an independent record label in San Francisco. The label, Cosmic Flux Musiq, released a handful of my songs before closing up shop a few years later.
I just spent a 5-day weekend working on 2 remix projects, and OMG I could 100% do this full-time! The first remix was for MetaPop's Krust remix competition, and the second was for my friends in the local indie…
I spent most of the early '90s chasing down one rave compilation CD after another with next to no idea what I was doing. I was just about to turn 20 and I didn't have a lot of cash to throw around. I spent hours in record stores, tortured over which of a handful of CDs I wanted to hear the most.
My first exposure to Lone was the refreshing and delightful (if slightly half-baked) Emerald Fantasy Tracks from 2010. Like so many of my electronic albums, I have absolutely no idea how I stumbled upon it. I’m so glad I did. Galaxy Garden, his follow up collaboration with Machinedrum, made it into my top 20 favorite albums of all time. I’ve been a devoted fan ever since.
