Exclusive Mixtape: Lauren Mia

Lauren Mia is a Los Angeles-based classical pianist, composer-turned-producer, songwriter, vocalist, and DJ. Her intricate musical weft across the soundscapes of Melodic Techno and Progressive House has shaped an ethereal, dynamic signature sound brimming with texture and identity. Her primary mission as a musician lies deeply in healing the self and others and creating meaningful connections through her music.

With a striking rise seen across the breadth of 2021, Lauren caught the eye of RÜFUS DU SOL and was brought on board to remix Paraleven’s album- highlight track “Tidal Wave” for release via Rose Avenue Records. A milestone release, “Lolo Graziano” marked her Anjunadeep debut, and topped the Beatport Melodic House and Techno charts in January of the same year.

I was so happy to spend some time putting together music that I know will create a memorable experience for you all, another journey through sound. This podcast includes some of my latest releases, some remixes, and some of my favorite tracks by other producers that I love and admire, some of which are my friends and colleagues, as well as artists with their forthcoming tracks on my imprint, Ear Porn Music. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did, making it. Thanks for listening. Sending love and light x

2022 sees Lauren delve deeper into the independent European dance label space, with her expertly produced originals on the Eternal Existence EP delivered on Luna Semara’s burgeoning Petit Matin imprint, as well as a preceding single “Ohm”. Following the original release, the EP was remixed by top names in Lauren’s circle of colleagues and musical collaborators including Elif, Erly Tepshi, Guzy, Made in Paris and Clawz SG. Lauren has seen additional releases across her catalogue make an impact, including her Harabe Records ‘Tantra’ EP, and releases via Somatic Records.
