London electronic experimentalist Loraine James joins us for an intimate gig-time live performance this October following the release of Gentle Confrontation, her third album for Hyperdub (label home of Burial, Dean Blunt, Laurel Halo). Breaking the mould of a predominantly white male IDM scene, James' stunning hybrid sound meshes IDM with R&B, jazz and UK drill and grime influences. It’s chopped and screwed but honest, bare and emotional. With Gentle Confrontation, she lets us into a new chapter of her real and sonic life in which she examines her past and present – a personal and musical leap forward, delivering a totally unique and personal vision of electronic pop music. She says this is the record a teenage Loraine would like to have made, with musical tendencies that reflect that time, too. It's a positively languid, enjoyably disjointed set made while listening to her teenage favourites: math rock and emo-electronic such as DNTEL, Lusine, and Telefon Tel Aviv, which drew her back to her adolescence. Featuring an ever more diverse set of peers, the album places them into Loraine’s unusual musical settings and draws out sensitive and reflexive performances. At other times the album stretches out into a drifting ambience as if trying to find a sense of bliss in the everyday. This is an 18+ event .
