Laura Jones has had a breakthrough 2012. Fulfilling touring dreams and winning the hearts of the global scene with her sensual melodic house and seductive, driving DJ sets, it may come as a surprise that ‘Let Me In’ is Laura’s first, albeit highly anticipated, solo EP. Dropping on Visionquest, ‘Let Me In’ develops Laura’s signature sound, painting a fuller picture of the artist through deeper techno shades, live vocals and trademark hypnotic style.
Title track ‘Let Me In’ could be Laura’s most beautiful and textured yet. A first foray into vocals (a feature bound to build and develop over time) the whispery undulating layers of “Let Me In” weave in and out of shimmering synth waves and ghostly melodic chimes while the ‘Dub Rework’ delves deeper and darker with a tight and punchy groove.
On the flip, ‘Lose Myself’ is another emotive builder, the spacious, raw groove filled with dubby textures and tingly FX giving way to lush pads that float through the echoing vox as drama builds with a melodic bounce to work the floor. Final track ‘Every Thought’ kicks off with reverberating rubbery bass and shakers, while a gothic-esque framework develops with evolving synth lines and filtered bleeps.
A protégé under the Visionquest banner and nurtured under the wings of Leftroom, Laura Jones exploded into the public consciousness in 2011 with her deep and intrinsically melodic vision of house. Her ‘Live A Little’ track was included on the ‘Visionquest Spring Club Collection’ sampler, and her breakthrough single ‘Love In Me’ stormed the Beatport chart and held the no.1 spot for several consecutive weeks – the second time courtesy of stellar remixes from Maceo Plex, Kate Simko and Eats Everything. Later came a joint EP on Crosstown Rebels and an immaculate mix for the Leftroom presents…series. Now with this timeless 4- tracker on the mighty Visionquest, the diminutive producer is destined for an even bigger 2013.
