Reality Testing is an invigorating blend of classic sampling style, analog synths, and deep grooves. Alternating between syncopated four-on-the-floor house rhythms and old-school boom bap beats, complete with Lone’s signature lushly layered production of uplifting chord progressions, analog synth lines and deep bass, the LP shows Lone’s ability to keep his sound fresh & kinetic at a variety of tempos.
This EP is full of hard hitting, head-nodding hip hop beats. Tracks 1, 2 & 4 are more bouncy & synth-heavy, while 3, 5 & 6 are more classically-sampled boom bap bangers. Minimal compositions, heavy kick drums on every track. Very similar in style to ATX’s own BoomBaptist. Killer grooves on this one.
