Tireless investigator of dance music’s mechanisms and working parts, and head of respected experimental label Presto!?, Lorenzo Senni produced two of the most unique albums in the last few years: “Quantum Jelly” (on label Editions Mego) and “Superimpositions” (Boomkat Editions), both acclaimed by media such as Fact or Debug. In 2016, he becomes part of the prestigious stable of the British label Warp. His latest release, “Persona”, draws from the IDM of the early ‘90s with irony and lightness. His production explores the idea of the “buildup” found in euphoric dance music as a starting point to make a non-uplifting, more introspective piece that implicitly preserves its emotional tension and drama. On 29 September Lorenzo Senni released the new ‘XAllegroX / The Shape of Trance To Come’ Ep for Warp Records.

Glasgow’s Calum MacRae records IDM and experimental club music under the name
Lanark Artefax, a moniker inspired by science fiction writer Alasdair Gray’s 1981. While undeniably influenced by the likes of Autechre and µ-ziq, MacRae’s brand of experimental electro seems a bit more neon-tinted, rave influences to seep into his complex tracks, which often feature shredded vocal samples and fractured rhythmic patterns. MacRae’s first release was Windox Rush, a five-song EP of acid-tinged electro released by Cong Burn Waves in 2015. He made his vinyl debut the following year with Glasz, an EP issued by Lee Gamble’s UIQ label. He then joined the roster of London-based label Whities; following an extremely limited 12″ at the end of 2016, Whities 011 appeared in 2017. The EP received a considerable amount of acclaim, particularly for the track “Touch Absence,” and the producer counted Aphex Twin, Björk, and Objekt among his fans and supporter.
