In August 2022, Lauren Flax was crowned the Underground Hero of DJ Mag‘s Best of North America Awards, which was followed up by her cover story for the magazine.
In the feature Flax looks back on her extensive journey in music and where she’s heading. Lauren tells Bruce:
“It’s only now, within the last three or four years, I’ve been starting to merge everything into something I feel is cohesive,” Flax says. “I’m getting there, but I’m not there quite yet. It might not come until I’m 50, but that’s okay. I think it’s important to lay out the concept of relying on yourself and your authenticity to get you there.
“I think intention is everything,” she continues, “and if your intention is to get rich and famous, then you’re putting yourself on track for a not very exciting ride. But if your intention is to do what makes you happy, and to learn and grow, and to hopefully have other people grow from what you’re doing, or at least enjoy what you’re doing, the rest is going to line up for you.”
