EMS welcomes Lorenzo Senni back! He is a tireless investigator of dance music’s mechanisms and working parts, and head of respected experimental label Presto!?, the Italian musician produced one of the last couple of years most unique albums "Quantum Jelly" (on label Editions Mego). An amazing deconstruction of sound and rave culture in the 90’s, carefully analyzing it’s constituent parts for reuse in a very different context, with repetition and isolation as key concepts.  His work 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.
