34: LORENZO SENNI
QUANTUM JELLY
(EDITIONS MEGO)


‘Makebelieve’

Last year, AraabMusik won plenty of hearts (not to mention a fair few detractors) with Electronic Dream, an album that reimagined naff Eurotrance as ecstatic thug-rap. Lorenzo Senni’s Quantum Jelly, by contrast, isn’t going to lead to an Ultra Music co-sign, but it’s a similarly fascinating exercise in trance deconstructionism. The Milanese multi-disciplinary artist borrows the genre’s strobing lead-lines, and expurgates literally everything else. The results – spiralling Energy 52 hooks, left to hang in a vacuum, forever – are as enthralling as they are uncanny. Mego calls Quantum Jelly “non-uplifting”; we’d plump for “shard-trance”.
