Loraine James

It only took three short years for Loraine James to draw attention to her futuristic, languid and political free bass music.

A gifted representative of a generation that has reclaimed the issues and intimacy of electronic music, the British producer and musician was logically noticed by the prescriptive Hyperdub label (Kode9, Burial). Her latest album Building Something Beautiful For Me (2022) varies the ambiences and is full of sonic discoveries. We perceive a brutally honest and terribly touching portrait of the artist, reminiscent of the work of New York composer Julius Eastman, to whom she recently paid tribute.
