Chris Lake is a Grammy nominated house DJ with massive, commercial hits from “Boneless” with Steve Aoki and Tujamo to his remix of Calvin Harris‘ “How Deep Is Your Love.” A Skrillex backed house act off his OWSLA release “I Want You,” certainly bodes influence towards bass house, where the dubstep poster child is heading. Another house and HOWSLA (OWSLA’s house music compilation album) favorite became Lake’s “Operator (Ring Ring)” single featuring Dances With White Girls. Ring Ring goes the telephone. There’s no one home.
The UK-born producer has been laying that four-by-four beat for over a decade, and assumes responsibility for some of the most pandemic dance hooks to grace the atmosphere. With his new Black Book Records label, fans have seen the reemergence of Lake’s chunky, hard-hitting bass lines featured in his recent singles, hopefully to be heard in his live set below.
