With a decade of musical adventuring under her belt Lauren Flax has played every major city in America and most across the Atlantic as well. Her keen knack for reading crowds is unmatched- her eclectic taste in dance music invariably manages to get everyone in the room moving.

She has collaborated with everyone from Fischerspooner to Internationally known singer Sia, best known for her work with Zero 7. Lauren was born and raised in the city of Detroit birthplace of Motown and Techno and has shared the stage with an amazing array of talent: DJ Heather, Disco D, Carl Craig, Jungle Brothers, Green Velvet, Derrek May, Kevin Saunderson...the list goes on and on.

(In fact, Madonna stopped in to see her at her Williamsburg show with Fischerspooner) She has also been busy remixing for friends such as Le Tigre, MEN (ex Le Tigre band member JD Samsons band), Telepathe, Fischerspooner, and Morningwood and they are just a few examples of bands she has under her belt in that arena.
