My Place, my Home is the first single from Lessing's upcoming collaborative masterpiece Frequency: an eleven track strong album with an eclectic crowd of feature guests. The hip-hop leaning first single is co-starring Brooklyn native rapper Stimulus, who Dario met the first time whil rapping at a jam session in Kreuzberg, Berlin with Robert Glasper in 2016. Years later, after playing several shows in Berlin Hotels and Bars, they've met in Lessing's creative cave and worked on My Place, my Zone. Stimulus originally developed his craft as an MC in New York's jazz scene with artists like Glasper and Chris Dave. He gained attention as one of the first ten artists to be featured on COLORS.
The last two years since his first release via Deutsche Grammophon have been turbulent for the Berlin native piano virtuoso, producer, and singer Dario Lessing: with an eclectic mix of beautiful piano pieces (DNA I), collaborations with other producers (Robot Koch, Andrew Applepie, AK and more) and alternative pop projects (Better Days EP with Rezar premiered on COMPLEX), his online following grew from zero to almost one million monthly listeners. Besides his constant output, the classically trained pianist started releasing sheet music of his magical pieces due to high demand on Instagram by fans from all over the world. He composed scores for fashion outlets (Tings Magazine), commercials (Bertelsmann) and is now preparing his collab-filled album Frequency with guest vocalists featured on every one of the eleven tracks. In short – 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 Metheney, Sebastian Knauer, Robot Koch…), the album is also Lessing’s first to be released on vinyl and the opener single My Place, my Home will be released on his live debut on 24th of September during Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg.
Frequency is set to be released worldwide in Frebruary 2022. Besides Stimulus, it features the voices of James Chatburn (AUS), Graham Candy (NZ), Rezar (AUT), SHAMS (GE) and Mario (GE). Stay tuned for the upcoming singles, stunning visuals and shows!
