Comprised of Lauren Pardini (vocals, keys) and Danny Sternbaum, the Los Angeles-based duo Pr0files can trace their origins to when Pardini and Sternbaum collaborated together in The Boy Traveller, a band which also featured Sonny Moore, who’s better known by his stage name, Skrillex. Once The Boy Traveller split up, Pardini went on to write for DJ Khalil’s camp and has written tracks for Eminem, Kendrick Lamar and Drake; Pardini also has collaborated with Purity Ring’s Corin Roddick and was briefly a member of The Silver Lake Chorus. Sternbaum on the other hand started his own band Baby Monster, an act that has toured with Klaxons, Miike Snow and Metric; and as a producer and remixer, Sternbaum has remixed tracks by Ellie Goulding, Gorillaz, Foster the Children and Miami Horror.
As Pr0files, the duo of Pardini and Sternbaum have won attention across the blogopshere for a slickly produced sound that possesses elements of R&B, electro pop and electronic dance music that for their earliest releases bore an uncanny resemblance to Beacon. However, interestingly enough “I Know You Still Care,” the first single off the duo’s forthcoming full-length debut Jurassic Technologie, slated for a Fall release feels and sounds like a decided change in sonic direction – and as though the duo had been attempting to channel Giorgio Moroder, as the song pulsates with an urgent, insistent sensuality. Consisting of layers of shimmering and cascading synths, skittering percussion and Pardini’s seductive cooing, the song is arguably the most sensual and straightforward dance track they’ve released to date.
