LAUREN NEKO: THE VOCALIST

Topline Writer and Recording Artist

 

Lauren has a voice that can be subtle and haunting, or one that is powerful enough to shake your soul. Whilst her writing style tends to strike a balance between both the soft and the dynamic, many ears appreciate her diverse vocal offering. 

Lauren is a song-writer and producer in her own right, but enjoys the collaborative process much more than being at it alone. Lauren has worked with some amazing professionals in her time as a topline writer, catering to the track/long-play sound being developed by the producer. Being trained in sound engineering, she is able to offer high quality recordings for any artist, as well as valuable input on the arrangement and mix of a track. 

As a featured recorded vocalist, some of her career highlights include working with Roni Size, Nicky Romero, and being featured on Ministry of Sound with Mobin Master.

 

Live Vocalist

Lauren has been seen behind many DJ Booths and stages of all kinds globally as a complementary addition to live DJ sets.

Performance highlights include singing at Hed Kandi in Ibiza with Levi 5star, Brisfest (Bristol, UK), Harbourside Festival (Bristol), singing in support for DJ Pierre (Bath, UK)as stage MC/DJ and Vocalist at Art Not Apart (Canberra, AU), and the opening party of The Little Red Door (Adelaide, AU).

Rhythm is a duo

'Acoustic 90s and 00s Dance Classics, Reimagined.'

Lauren Neko: DJ

Club DJ

 

Lauren is not a cheap-thrills or 'Beatport-top-100' type of DJ. Instead she digs for music old and new, to play groove-centred tracks and anything that has some originality or soul. Lauren weaves live vocals into her sets: playing her own original songs, adding harmonic layers to existing tunes, or reimagining classic toplines over contemporary tracks. This way, she takes her audiences on a journey that is both fresh yet familiar.

 

Genres you would expect to hear are House in it's Classic, Deep, and Acid facets. On occasion, some Garage, Tech-House and Electro-House will slip into her sets.

Function/Corporate DJ:

* Birthdays  * Gallery/Exhibitions * Product Launch * Venue Activation * Company Function * Private Parties *

Each event is different, and requires an understanding of your audience. Lauren aims for a tasteful selection of music, that builds interest without detracting from the atmosphere or conversation you wish to create. Unless of course, you want a more music-dominating experience! Lauren will happily get on board with any theme you wish, ensuring both her attire and music suit the occasion!

" Whilst a tragic top-40/90's dominated set list can bring out the inner twerker in anyone who's had alcohol on constant supply, I would love to work with you to create something more classy and memorable - for the right reasons!" Lauren
