The two members of Laurent, Jacob and Rico, met and became friends about 7 years ago while watching other people producing on Ableton on Twitch. They bonded over long Skype sessions where they would bounce ideas off each other or share constructive criticism.
Laurent, however, wasn’t formed until March of 2020 where both decided to focus on making music since all of their classes were completely remote due to the COVID situation. Blending live and electronic elements, the duo are aiming to explore the creative space beyond instrumental hip hop music and create something fresh and engaging.
“Fractals” marks their first release via Stereofox Records and it is a solid, brass-driven composition that embodies both melancholic feelings and energetic jazz ambiance.
