Review: It's been a little while since we heard from Laura Jones, but the Leeds-based producer is back in action on her own Sensoramic label with a strident EP of limber tech house excursions that highlight her continued progression as a producer. "Pathway" is a gently bouncy cut with bubbling synths coursing between the subtle swing of the beat, using vocal snippets to great effect to create a decidedly trippy atmosphere. "Tough Crowd' pushes the psychedelic approach even further with some truly wigged out tones swirling in a cut just made for eyes-closed-dancing moments. 100Hz takes on a remix of "Pathway" that uses crafty, militaristic drums and sparse treatment of the melodic and vocal elements to create a delicate, compelling alternative vision of Jones' original.
Review: Sensoramic is a new label on a mission of sensory expansion. For the debut release the UK based imprint drafts new producer Karousel to deliver two cuts of machine driven house. S.A.M., the Danish Oscillat/Delaphine favourite appears on the remix fresh from delivering a slew of killer originals and remixes as well as his most recent Mandar collaboration with Lazare Hoche and Malin Genie. On this Reshape, he is at his most sublime best delivering an emotive retake on the original that stretches heady organs and melodies alongside a beat that refuses to let up.
Review: Sensoramic first started up in 2016 with releases from Laura Jones and Karousel, and now the label makes a comeback with some crafty techno excursions from Kamran Sadeghi. You can hear the errant behaviour of a plentiful hardware set up powering the glitchy tone on "Undone", but that intrigue doesn't come at the expense of the kinetic energy of the track. "Sentient" takes a slightly deeper approach, but there's still an abundance of sonic activity darting around in the mix. "Not Here" is the most immersive of the lot, using some powerful metallic tones to create a cavernous space and threading a nimble groove for the centre of it.
