Ambivert Tools Volume Four
Lone delivers the final instalment of his stunning Ambivert Tools series
Started in 2017 Ambivert Tools gave Lone the chance to step outside the confines of writing music for an album and get back to the basics of crafting tunes primarily for his intoxicating DJ sets.
Inspired in no small part by the rich seam of house that he’s been excavating with his fine Magicwire imprint Ambivert Tools parts one to three have been stacked with breezy, rugged house excursions full of his trademark atmospheric melody / harmony . Each track instantly recognisable as music that could have only come from Lone’s East London studio.
This final transmission again finds Lone in vintage form – ‘Pulsar’ takes inspiration from classic UK Techno and IDM from the likes of Stasis and B12. This one shares DNA with the rolling breaks of ‘Temples’ from Volume Three but goes deeper in search of that 6am dancefloor feeling.
‘Oedo 808’ as the title suggests gets busy with some tight 808 drum programming bringing an electro feel to the mix . The rude bassline and glistening electronics only work to to tighten it up further for the dancefloor.
‘Blue Moon Tree’ rounds things off in style staying true to the DJ tool theme of the series, a killer bassline, crisp drums, spiralling vocal sample and stabs are all this one needs to be a staple in the right DJ’s boxes for a long time to come.
