PERSONA EP HAND SIGNED
Persona marks the return of trance angel, Lorenzo Senni, blessing Warp Records with their best release of the decade so far; a scintillating, syncretic hybrid of his PointillisticT Build Up Fetishism augmented via straight edge HxC roots - a sound best termed as Rave Voyeurism.
The Milanese artist’s follow-up to the conceptual couplet of Quantum Jelly (2012) and Superimpositions (2014) forms a logical, meticulous expansion of their teasing themes, tweaking the formula to simultaneously reconcile and reaffirm his original, teenaged impetus with his contemporary self, affording a more vivid reflection of Senni as an artist and a closer realisation of his noumenal thrust in the process.
Coupled with Ed Atkins unnervingly poignant CGI artwork depicting Senni's Rave Voyeur protagonist - A Ray Cappo of the rave? - and a sleeve design referencing Daniel Sansavini's iconic artwork for Japanese SXC releases, Persona is entirely symptomatic of the 'floors current quandaries and, likewise, one of the most innovative and life-affirming insights to the imagination and machinations of dance music in 2016.
