Influences: K-Lone

The tracks which helped inspire the sound of his new album.

Towards the tail end of last week Wisdom Teeth released K-Lone's debut LP, a beautiful assortment of tracks and polyrythms make up "Cape Cira".

The sound dotted across the album is somewhat of a departure from his stereotypical trademark sound which has often leant more towards dub and UK bass. It's always interesting to observe the rationale behind why a producer might choose an entirely alternative approach towards an album than that of an EP. In this case it comes from a number of key influences, some close to home and some from further afield. 

It's always impressive when an artist is able to express themselves in long form, even more so when they are confident enough to release the record via their own label. Wisdom Teeth is run by K-Lone and Facta. 

We invited K-Lone to guide us through his approach, referencing tracks which helped inspire "Cape Cira".

This was a massive influence on my track “Honey” off the album. That catchy mid bass melody hits hard paired with that cheeky high synth.
