It's a great time to catch up on DeLaurentis because she keeps releasing enchanting innovative projects at a very fast pace. In 2022, DeLaurentis world is packed with exciting new developments, including a new collaboration with one of electronic music's pioneers, an acclaimed debut album hailed by Rolling Stone magazine, 3D music videos, and festival appearances across France and the United States.

She first took the electronic world by surprise when she released Unica, a collection of ten mesmerizing songs that form her debut album. Creating Unica was a way for her to express her own vulnerability in sort of a metaverse. The music of DeLaurentis is like the existentialist guru we have been waiting for in the 21st century, connecting human torment with machines. Her fragile and touching voice is at the center of this powerful digital tale at the crossroads of Laurie Anderson, Daft Punk and Jean-Michel Jarre. Besides being a talented songwriter and singer, DeLaurentis is an expert with electronic devices. In addition to being recognized as one of the most innovative producers right now, she has been invited to conduct Ableton master classes all over the world. She also built a strong relationship with IRCAM, a leading French institute dedicated to developing new technologies for the arts. Together they developed Virtual Choir, an automatic harmonizing tool controlled by gloves designed by Imogene Heap.

She also has a very strong connection to the film world beyond Dino DeLaurentis' (La Strada, Blue Velvet, King Kong,...) reference in her name. She is creating a stunning visual world to accompany the soundtrack to our complicated digital lives. The 3D video for Extra Life may be the perfect introduction to the beautiful world she's created. Madnarts, aka Paul Perrier, created this incredible 3D animation showing the birth of Unica.
In DeLaurentis' universe, there may be a sense of loneliness, but the musician craves collaboration. While DeLaurentis was playing in Los Angeles last February, she met one of France's electronic music pioneers, Joachim Garraud (David Bowie, Beyonce, Kylie Minogue, Cassius, Cerrone, David Guetta, Bob Sinclar,...). Their collaboration began in Joachim's solar-powered mobile studio, LAgoodvibe. Using solar power, he transformed a classic RV into a mobile recording studio. In the desert, they found inspiration for Avoriaz, their new collaborative effort. The duet will make their live debut at Joachim's Electric Park Festival near Paris on September 3rd. A full-length album is in the works. However, their collaboration doesn't end here. Joachim Garraud is curating a festival in Central Park on Bastille Day in collaboration with the French Consulate of New York. The festival will feature a special performance by DeLaurentis. As well as her own repertoire, she will perform French classics by Edith Piaf, Serge Gainsbourg, and Maurice Ravel.
Get a taste of DeLaurentis unique world with her latest release, which is a Remix EP of one of her most beautiful tracks from her debut album, Unica’s Cloud. With two remixes as powerful as cinematographic, two artists from the young emerging French electronic scene (Ateph Elidja and OMX) rework the song, halfway between futuristic R&B of FKA Twigs and the music of Magid Jordan.
