Editions Mego ventures into the danceable world of hard trance with new LP by Lorenzo Senni

I’ve never been much of a trance person myself, but I readily consume almost anything that Editions Mego releases. They’re releasing a “hard-trance inspired” album; thus, I will readily consume it. Were the label to release a collection of Michael Jackson covers performed by its employees, I’m not sure that I’d readily consume that, but the name “Editions Mego” would certainly convey a degree of experimental badassery. I’ve always thought “Billie Jean” could’ve benefited from some bassline distortion anyway.

Where were we? Ah yes, the “hard-trance inspired” album. On October 8, artist and composer Lorenzo Senni (also owner of the Milan-based Presto!? label) will be releasing Quantum Jelly, an album said to be “deeply influenced” by his “love of 90s trance/hard-trance music.” As FACT points out, Senni has taken the “most obvious characteristics” of the genre and re-imagined them “in relation to his own background in experimental and noise culture.” Each track was recorded in one take using a single Roland synthesizer, and the album itself represents somewhat of a broadening in style for the label on which it’s being released.

When was the last time an Editions Mego release inspired head-nodding? Sensate Focus might’ve done it for you recently. Quantum Jelly might take things even further. Pre-order it here.
