As for Lauren Minear, she is a folk, soul-pop singer-songwriter born in NYC but raised in Nashville. She blends various genres of music to create her own stamp on the industry. She started in music by writing her own song at 14, titled “Daddy’s Little Girl”. Next, she interned on Music Row at Major Bob Music, at Sony ATV Publishing, and in the studio with Steve Earle. She also performed with and recorded an EP with guitarist George Marinelli (Bonnie Raitt) during that time. She eventually got degrees in History (Yale, B.A.) and Social Work (NYU, MSW) and became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT). Now she lives in Westchester, New York, with her husband and two sons, and for the past two years she’s focused on writing songs about her life as a wife and a mother – no wonder her songs are full of such integrity, emotion, and honesty. “Soul Tired” is her most streamed track on Spotify, with tens of thousands of streams.
Talking about the remix, Lauren Minear said: “I have been on the lookout for talented producers to remix my songs since I finished recording them. I love to collaborate and think that good music transcends genre… I thought it would be so cool and unexpected to have my lyrics played on a dance floor and potentially reach new ears. I sent the record to Noah so that he could choose which song most inspired him, and he picked ‘Heartbroken’. I’m so excited by the choice he made and how different his remix is to anything that I could have made myself.”
“I heard the vision for the remix as soon as the vocal came on. I knew where I wanted to go with it,” Haterade said on why he selected the track to remix. “It took a few different turns. I had the intro, build, break down, and drop drums but I was going back and forth on the style of the drop synths. Eventually, I landed on the one you can hear today and I stuck with it. Like I mentioned before, I rebuilt everything around the vocal so I got the tempo, the key, and just started building the track piece by piece.”

Written by Lauren Minear and originally produced by Dan Weeks at WWW Studios in London (for The Online Recording Studio), “Heartbroken” is an emotional ballad that is passionate and empowering, but Haterade comes in and completely disassembles the track and rebuilds it into a dance anthem that deserves to be heard on the dancefloor. There’s a clear build-up from the start as Haterade creates tension for the epic drop that’s clearly about to crash into the track; this momentum warps around Lauren Minear’s first verse, adding depth and energised emotion. The drop transcends with techno beats, unstoppable synths, and trap melodic rhythms, which make it clear that you will not forget about this song. The pacing is reminiscent of a roller-coaster, with the build-up and the drop happening multiple times, but the anticipation from the get-go is nothing you’ve ever felt before.
