Lone Remixes Egyptian Hip Hop’s “Yoro Diallo”


The concept of rave revivalism has a ton of negative connotations, mostly due to lowest common denominator American festival fuckery. Manchester resident Lone’s past two albums distinctly aim at early 90’s rave music, but don’t expect to find any butt chuggers bumping Galaxy Garden any time soon. Take his latest remix of Egyptian Hip Hop’s phonky “Yoro Diallo” for example. Lone keeps the tempo low, but still manages to induce mass euphoria by utilizing sweeping synth pads and the original’s beatific harmonies. Lone’s skittering percussion annunciates the early rave tropes allowing “Yoro Diallo” to tumble into a nostalgia filled plane. Stream below and look out for an official release via R&S Records.
