The Oram Awards 2018: Loraine James
North London native Loraine James is an up and coming electronic artist/ producer with a lot of promise and already a wealth of material. A master at crafting organic textures through inorganic means, she effortlessly blends Electronica and Math rock with whispers of jazz and post-rock all wrapped up in the artists key avant-garde aesthetic and sensibility. With a minimal use of equipment Loraine crafts truly breathtaking textures from relatively simple means, armed only with a Macbook, a MIDI Keyboard and Novation Launchpad – Loraine transcends any technological constraints to make anything from ambient off-kilter beats to four to the floor vocal-sample driven techno/house.
“I am so happy to be accepting The Oram Awards and with the help of PRS Foundation, being able to fund things such as making my music sound more professional my having it properly mixed/mastered, as well as wanting to do a little tour. I think its great that this exists because it puts women in the limelight.”
