01. The Playground (Original Mix) PREVIEW

02. Awake (Original Mix) PREVIEW

Acid techno-breaks star Home Alone makes his debut on Ridiculoud with two big original cuts of pure dancefloor mayhem.  ‘The Playground’ showcases the trademark Home Alone style beats fused with a soaring acid line that provides a classy bounce, while ‘Awake’ substitutes the traditional acid sounds for an infectious groove and catchy melody that's perfect for an energized crowd.


Kultur & Colombo (Metamorph Muzik/Kultura Breakz) - “Awake: a new hit from Home Alone. Tech-Breaks full of groovy sensations and good vibes. Support in our Metamorph Masterpieces Show (Mixcloud) in the next few weeks and also in our live sets.”

Duane Barry (Digital Sensation UK) - “I really like the synth stabs in Awake. It's an interesting direction for Dino on these tracks, very uplifting :)”

Daniella Downs (Dead Famous) - “I dig the acid in The Playground.”

Llupa (YellowFinger/Ridiculoud) - “Home Alone is on a rampage at the moment! Both of these have a different and cool feel. The Playground is more ‘Ridiculoud’ with its driving and building vibes, whereas Awake is more of a bouncy, stompy tune (which went down very well when I dropped it last week). Favorite tune: Awake. Full support from me!”

Lee Martin (Dusted Breaks) - “Awake is my favorite of the two - has a really cool, funky edge to it. Will Support!”

Kickflip (Breakin Even) - “Cool acidic breaks stuff. Good to hear Dino's production keep on improving too!”

Steve Maccabe (VIM) - “Big fan of Home Alone's sound. Awake is my favorite of the two tracks and the one I’d play out. Good work from Dino on this release.”

Mobius (Ape Music) - “Awake is probably my favorite thing I've heard from Home Alone so far; got a nice, happy, bouncy feel to the track.”

EK (Dead Famous) - “I'm liking the sounds of Awake.”

Robosapiens (Dead Famous) - "Two very different but wicked tracks from Dino. Like them both but The Playground is my favorite with its tripped out samples and growling lead line - 9/10, quality stuff."

Vital Substance (Breakin Even) - “Awake is wicked dude! Nice work, quality release!”

Far Too Loud (Funkatech) - “The Playground is more to my taste than Awake. Long live acid!”

Burjuy (Breaks Review Show) - "Home Alone rocks this year! Awake is very good to start the party because it rocks with increasing wave!!! I Like it very much! Full support."

Yreane (XSSR) - “Home Alone is one of my heroes these days. Like both tracks.”

8*B1T (Ridiculoud) - “Loving the disco attitude in Awake - very driving rhythm and killer vox. Definitely diggin' The Playground, the acid lines get me every time! Will be playing both out for sure.”
