Laura Jones

Sensoramic

Continued rising star born of the ever-popular Visionquest imprint, Laura Jones has seen a breakthrough 2012 with global tours and winning the ears of impressionable listeners. Being her first full length EP on the label, Laura’s special touches in Sensoramic construct a sound of deep techno and her trademarked hypnotic style of production.  Her past work on Leftroom and now strong support by Visionquest is backed up by her continued support from large talent like Maceo Plex, Kate Simko, and Eats Everything. Showcasing untouched ability to create sensual and melodic electronic music, Laura Jones tosses us four unforgettable tunes in one slamming adventure.

Track one, Let Me In, could be Jones’ most textured and gorgeous work to date. Shimmering synth waves and ghostly chimes layer over a whispery vocal. Almost too perfect as an opening track, her Dub Rework delves into darker shades of techno with a tight and punchy groove. Haunting chords and plucky samples bring to life one bass heavy ball of beats. One to be played early or late night, the dark vibe of the Dub Rework shows that Laura is not just about uplifting chimes and synths, but also has a more sinister side to her work.

Bringing again a lighter mood of music, the spacious and open groove of Lose Myself brings to life a finely textured product that builds only to make the floor bounce.  A highly emotional production, Lose Myself’s dubby lushness again flips the general attitude of the EP bringing light once again to open air dancefloors. Echoing FX and vocals create drama as a rubbery bass and shakers build a frame of gothic-esque emotion in Every Thought. Filtered beeps and 808 heavy drum hits make a solid four to the floor groove with uplifting moments of bliss. Now with this timeless EP on the impressive Visionquest, Laura’s career is looking bright for the new year and beyond. Expect to see massive support by some of the best talent from around the globe, to be heard on some of the best sound systems around the globe.
