Over the last years, Lessing´s Berlin based studio has become a hub for creative exchange. His ability to catch inspiration right at its point of origin is the foundation of his album Frequency, which features six different vocalists with international backgrounds from the US (Stimulus) to Australia (James Chatburn), New Zealand (Graham Candy), Austria (Rezar) and of course Germany (SHAMS, Mario). The concept of frequency describes the creative development of how the songs were created: every person has his or her own frequency they are sending out constantly. When they collide, they influence eachother, create new waves and form something new. The result is an album that has a cosmic magic to it and listening feels like being within that creative cave, part of the moment these frequencies fused. At parts ambient, sometimes influenced by Hip-Hop or avant-pop à la James Blake, Frequency is an eclectic master piece from beginning to end.
Since his first release via Deutsche Grammophon in 2019, it has been turbulent for the Berlin native piano virtuoso, producer, and singer Dario Lessing: with an eclectic mix of beautiful piano pieces (DNAI), collaborations with other producers (Robot Koch, Andrew Applepie, A Kandmore) and alternative pop projects (Better Days EP with Rezar premiered on COMPLEX), his online following grew from zero to almost one million monthly listeners and he got known as one of Berlin’s most hopeful new talents in the realm of neo-classical music. Lessing represents a new breed of self-made artists and producers that collaborate without musical or geographical boarders.
Lessing represents a new breed of self-made artists and producers that collaborate without musical or geographical boarders. His capability to catch the very core of other artists creativity leads to uniquely direct and intuitive records with a spiritual, often mystical character. Freshly signed on the prestigious Modern Recordings (Pat Metheny, Sebastian Knauer, Robot Koch…), the album is also Lessing’s first to be released on vinyl.
