The Los Angeles, CA-based duo of Pr0files consists of of long-time collaborations Lauren Pardini (vocals and keys) and Danny Sternbaum (production and guitars). They actually began collaborating several years ago when they were in a band together together, Boy Traveller, and the band included a guy who then went by his birth name Sonny Moore, who you probably know as internationally known EDM superstar, Skrillex.
Pardini went on with write for DJ Khalil’s camp and was responsible for writing tracks for Eminem, Kendrick Lamar and Drake, as well as with Corin Riddick of Purity Ring, and a brief stint in Silver Lake Chorus. Sternbuam started his own, Baby Monster — and with Baby Monster, Sternbaum has toured with Klaxons, Miike Snow and Metric, and has remixed tracks by the likes of Ellie Goulding, Gorillaz, Foster the Children, and Miami Horror.
“Luxury” which is the title track from the duo’s latest effort, Luxury
may arguably be the most sensual track the band has released to date; in fact, it sounds as though it could have been released in much more hedonistic times thanks to its layers of undulating synths, hot flashes of cymbals, funky yet angular guitars, swirling electronics and Pardini’s seductive cooing. In some way, the overall production style bears an uncanny resemblance to St. Lucia – a track that manages to sound both airy and densely layered and with incredibly catchy hooks.
