It is with great regret that we must announce the cancellation of Jessy Lanza's and Loraine James' upcoming show at MeetFactory. 💔 A close family member of Jessy is fighting a serious illness, hence she made the decision to cancel the whole upcoming European tour.
All ticket holders will be refunded automatically over the course of the coming days. Thank you for your understanding.
„I wish I was writing to you with better news but after dealing with some ongoing health issues a member of our family has been diagnosed with a serious illness. We were hopeful that results from the latest tests would be positive and had we known that the condition was this serious we would have let you know sooner. Recovery is going to be our focus for the foreseeable future. We are so sad to cancel this tour but there is no other option.“
Canadian electronic songwriter, producer, and vocalist Jessy Lanza returns to MeetFactory for the third time with her new record Love Hallucination, released in July on the renowned British label Hyperdub. Supporting the show will be Loraine James presenting her recently released album Gentle Confrontation, an intimate reflection on the scars and bruises of a major loss in early childhood.
From club-ready bangers to downbeat, sultry songs, Jessy Lanza's new record reminds us of falling into depths of love but being self-assured enough to trust one’s instincts. Love Hallucinationpacks a load of raw emotion and honest lyrics, underlined by sleek production with contributions from Jacques Greene, Paul White or David Kennedy. In the words of Resident Advisor about the record's pilot single Don't Leave Me Now: "...it comes out sounding triumphant and self-assured, a slice of glittery synth pop heaven even in the face of adversity."
On her third full-length for Hyperdub, British experimental producer and musician Loraine James materializes difficult-to-name emotions through chaotic arrangements and glitchy beats.
"This is the record a teenage Loraine would like to have made." James reflects on her blackness and queer identity through the prism of her adolescence; shattered complex rhythms shrouded in an atmospheric haze reflect her early influences and seek out the intersections of drum & bass, techno, R&B, pop, and IDM. "Gentle Confrontation offers an invitation to bear witness to a process that's human, hard to define, and close to the heart." – Pitchfork
