Exclusive Premiere: Lauren Mia, Stil & Bense – Existence (Original Mix)

Los Angeles-based classical pianist and composer-turned-songwriter, vocalist, music producer and DJ Lauren Mia celebrates her first release of the year in collaboration with German duo Stil & Bense. “Existence” is available on March 11th, 2022 via the famed Kreuzberg, Berlin club Ritter Butzke’s in-house record imprint as a part of Stil & Bense’s latest EP.

Glistening with articulately harmonized melodic techno elements, “Existence” brims with mystique and romanticism. Lauren Mia’s articulately executed, driving production prowess is complemented exquisitely by Stil & Bense’s quintessential, minimal bass lines. Structured to be a sensible, sensorily stimulating listening experience, both parties contribute dynamic melody and percussion that places the unique intersection between the two artist’s musical identities on display.

The release of “Existence” comes ahead of the release of Lauren Mia’s first independent release of 2022 “Ohm” slated for March 25th, 2022 via Luna Semara’s imprint Petit Matin.
