London-based producer, vocalist and DJ Lauren Duffus began composing and producing during the first lockdown in the spring of 2020 and soon discovered the ways it helped her to navigate her emotions (specifically grief at the time) through music. Lo-fi tracks began to surface on her Soundcloud page, such as ‘Stir Fry’ which would later become one third of her debut EP ‘SULK’ - made up of 3 experimental yet minimalist dance tracks that weave reflective, melancholic and hopeful melodies, crying sounds and dancehall drums. Following this she went on to release a varied catalogue of tracks and edits that showed us we were watching her experiment and develop her style in real time. From “Habits”, released on AD93 - a tense, slow burning cinematic dance track debuting the use of her signature layered vocals, to “Permanence” an emotive classical piece featuring a voicemail from her Doctor over a tense orchestral arrangement.
Simultaneously playful and tender, her unique sound articulates something heartfelt and cinematic and this quickly singled her out as an exciting addition to London’s experimental electronic scene. Her goals are to grow as a producer and compose for visual arts, documentary and film.
