Although I was familiar with his work, my first real exposure to Chris Lake was during his set at the Electric Zoo Festival in New York last year. Saying that his song selections and mixing were great is an understatement. For me, Chris Lake put on THE BEST performance out of the 50+ artists at the entire festival. He proved that it doesn’t take brain-bashing electro-synths, uplifting trance pads, or big bouncy beats to pump a crowd full of energy. He’s one of the few acts I will absolutely not be missing at this year’s festival. Luckily for us his productions come off exactly like his sets: innovative and clean.
Chris Lake has teamed up with another UK House star, Michael Woods for a stunning progressive house release titled Dominos. The song starts with a heavy bass line and slowly builds upon a simple yet subtle melody creating a warm, embracing piece of art. Backed by none other than Pete Tong, this song is a must hear for any progressive house fan.
