Brooklyn-based DJ & producer. ReSolute NYC resident, All Day I Dream artist.
Lauren Ritter started life believing that everybody saw colors when they heard music. She also believed that by college she would have visited the moon, Mars, and Saturn. At the age of 7, the adults in her life delivered two crushing truths: the first was that not everybody sees colors when they hear sounds, and the second was that the universe is far too big for one person to see all of it in their lifetime. She felt that she needed to choose either space exploration or music.
Since choosing music, she’s been creating a sonic cosmos that shares the colors of sound that some people may not naturally see. She traffics in personal, groove-driven, emotive, minimal house that seduces the audience to fill the empty space with imagination.
Her 2015 and 2016 All Day I Dream releases quickly became favorites among fans and critics, being described as “hypnotic,” “mesmerizing,” and “a bittersweet headrush.” Swoon, and title track, Lark, have since been featured on several BBC Radio 1 Essential Mixes, expanding her reach well beyond the underground. However, it’s her live sets that treat fans to the esoteric spirit of dance music.
Music hasn’t quelled Lauren’s desire to visit Saturn; until technology catches up with her, she’s working on tracks that will bring Saturn to earth.
