After announcing the partnership during his debut performance at the famed Mixmag Lab last month, Chris Lake unveils his collaboration with Chris Lorenzo,“The Calling.” Out on Ultra Records, the duo are no strangers to working together, with the pair releasing “Wicked Games” last year, and “Piano Hand” on Ultra last May. An infusion of their house influences with a darker and more seductive sound, “The Calling” steers into a deeper direction, with heavy bass and pulsating tones.
With over one million records sold and a gold record to his name, Chris Lake has established himself as a mainstay in the realm of electronic music. Gifted with the ability of self-taught musicality by the age of fourteen, Lake’s skills and his affinity for house music only continued to grow. With a North American tour and string of successful hits this year including “Stranger,” “Stomper” with Anna Lunoe, and his remix of Calvin Harris & Disciples’ “How Deep Is Your Love,” the latter of which reached #1 on HypeMachine and amassed over 25 million plays on Soundcloud, the release of “The Calling” only emphasizes his sterling reputation as one of today’s hitmakers and key tastemakers.
Through the past few years, Birmingham native Chris Lorenzo has led the charge in the jackin’ house and bass movements, pioneering his own signature “House & Bass” style. Having released under influential labels such as Claude Vonstroke’s Dirtybird, Shadow Child & Kry Wolf’s Food Music, Black Butter and more, Lorenzo’s name has become instantaneously associated with a bouncing bass sound that has enamored audiences worldwide. In addition to remixing and collaborating with artists such as Disclosure, Hannah Wants, Rudimental and more, his personal touch has been sought after by heavy weights such as Skrillex, Ed Sheeran and Steve Aoki, who tapped him for his release “Delirious” with rapper Kid Ink.
