Nubile to the DNA of sharply shoulder-padded R&B/electro, thawed and glass blown into a slow, spacious dance of 30th century easy living, Canadian artist Jessy Lanza docks in wispy whites and cream-coloured opulence.
She’s perhaps bringing the sweetest voice so far to Hyperdub. She’s a fibre-optic Lolita to whom you’ll be yanking at your Ethernet cable, either to transcend pleasure or to save yourself, as Lanza’s drawing of breath reaches the point where even her sometime unintelligibility becomes a turn-on.
