Los Angeles-based classical pianist and composer-turned-songwriter, vocalist, music producer and DJ Lauren Mia follows up the release of her joint endeavor with German duo Stil & Bense “Existence” with her first independent release of 2022. “Ohm” is an ethereal, melodic techno voyage that is out now via Luna Semara’s boutique record imprint Petit Matin.
“Ohm” turns on its axis like a glowing orb, charged with glistening life-force. A lush and expansive composition, it builds steadily from its earth-grounded pulse, unfolding into textures and liquid-mercury melodies. An orchestral sense of space is perhaps attributable to Lauren Mia’s classical roots: dark, velvet bass tones come alive with mid-range flourishes, cut across with sparks high overhead. A livewire number for collective dancefloor joy, “Ohm” is no less rewarding as a deeply hypnotic headphones listen.
DJ/producer, recording artist and A&R Luna Semara channels a profound love of synthesis into her music. Her tightly coiled electronic tracks unfurl in a slow, deliberate build, humming with a powerful undercurrent: the communion of rhythm, dance and voice. Recent releases from Luna include that of a remix of one of Stephan Bodzin’s key releases from his milestone BOAVISTA album. Her newly launched imprint Petit Matin, meaning “small hours” in French is dedicated to the feeling of dancing through the night, returning home hopeful. Through Luna’s A&R and curated releases, Petit Matin nurtures artists in the space with an ethos to restore one's belief in humanity.
“Ohm” is just the first of Lauren Mia’s original productions of 2022 to hit the soundwaves. Having cut her teeth in the studio and behind the decks, the spotlight continues to move towards and stay in the direction of her earned artistic talent.
