Chris Lake puts a dark, moody twist on MK’s ‘Body 2 Body’

Chris Lake puts a dark, moody twist on MK’s ‘Body 2 Body’Chris Lake

MK’s latest release “Body 2 Body” has a full remix package coming on July 5, and it’s hard to envision a producer better equipped to give a taste of what’s to come than dance music maverick, Chris Lake. That’s probably why Lake’s rendition has arrived ahead of the package release.

Lake gives the pop-flavored original a hefty makeover, trimming layers from MK’s catchier single to accentuate the club-ready figure at “Body 2 Body”‘s core. The remix is dark, but that’s not to say that the British house star’s flip doesn’t summon a full spectrum of sound. A throbbing bassline is met halfway by a pitch-rising synth that’s set to carry a dancefloor deep into the night.

This is the first of two Chris Lake >< MK crossovers, as the latter recently revealed to Billboard that an MK twist of a Chris Lake track is in the works. The upcoming release can be found on MK’s label Area 10 as well as Ultra Music and includes remixes from the likes of Meduza, Treasure Fingers, and KC Lights.

Claude VonStroke joins forces with ZDS and KE for “Comments,” and Malaa takes things up a notch with a feisty remix of DJ Snake’s “Savage.” Madeaux links with Dances With White Girls for “Club Demons,” and “Worlds Collide” on Nervo’s latest. Goldroom continues a slew of releases with “I Can Feel It” with Love, Alexa. ShockOne and The Bloody Beetroots take to Monstercat for their new single, “Run,” and Laidback Luke and Mark Bale dance into the weekend with “Party Starter.” Klingande and Stevie Appleton craft an easygoing single in “Sinner,” and Moguai remixes Oliver Heldens’ “Summer Lover.”

As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed this NMF.

Good Morning Mix: Take a face-melting stroll through Wax Motif’s House of Wax #026

Good Morning Mix: Take a face-melting stroll through Wax Motif’s House of Wax #026Wa Motif

In recent years, Australia has proven a bottomless breeding ground for inventive electronic artistry. Flume, Alison Wonderland, What So Not, and Anna Lunoe are just a fun-sized chunk of the abundant Aussie eminence molding and maestroing the electronic space from global vantage points. Wax Motif, however, has flown relatively under the radar until recently, despite wide-reaching support from his counterparts and releases on upper-echelon imprints like Tchami’s CONFESSION, AC Slater’s Night Bass, Tiësto’s Musical Freedom, and Destructo’s All My Friends.

Motif’s House Of Wax SoundCloud mix series sees the “Kush Groove” artist, known for his disco-driven, G-House-drenched strain of four on the floor, compile his quixotic tastes in hour-long segments. In the 26th installment, Motif summons the songs of the hour, with piping hot new offerings from Dog Blood, Fisher, Black Caviar, Chris Lake, UMEK, Eli Brown, Matroda, and Sonny Fodera. Now you know: When the wax starts drippin’, it’s time to wake up and shake it.

Chris Lake – Stay With Me

This post was originally published on this site

Chris Lake – Stay With MeChris Lake

Chris Lake continues to define and perfect tech house with his latest release “Stay With Me.” The producer is fresh off of his EDC Las Vegas set, and looks forward to a b2b set with FISHER in NYC, which sold out in less than a day.

The track initially follows the layout one might expect from Chris Lake, encapsulating the listener in a pulsing tech house backdrop with groovy basslines and soaring vocals. It builds and builds upon itself until climax, when it explodes into a robotic, melody-laced cacophony of synth riffs and heady percussion. It’s a piece built for live performance, and is expected to rile up dancefloors in NYC and across the world as Lake continues his joint tour.

“Stay With Me” is out now via his own Black Book Records.

Five Chris Lake productions to stream ahead of the house tastemaker’s set at Atlantic City’s HQ2 Nightclub

Five Chris Lake productions to stream ahead of the house tastemaker’s set at Atlantic City’s HQ2 NightclubChris Lake

Chris Lake‘s enticing four-on-the-floor beats have a history of drawing all to the floor. The engrossing melodies, stand out synth work, and sunken bass lines that have collectively come to color a Chris Lake production invite listeners to momentarily dissociate from the reality of routine, to instead escape into the sonic. A trusted entity when it comes to the construction of beats sure to make streamers lose their minds, the UK-born producer has ‘housed’ streamers for years with original offerings like “Operator (Ring Ring),” and commercial favorite, “Boneless.”

House heads in search of underground fun during Memorial Day Weekend 2019 need look no further than Chris Lake’s May 24 set at Atlantic City, New Jersey’s HQ2 Nightclub. Dancing Astronaut scales the temporality of Lake’s catalog, to spotlight some of Lake’s landmark efforts, from his most recent single, “Stay With Me” to comparatively more mature tunes like 2012’s “Sundown (Chris Lake Remix).” Secure tickets to Lake’s Garden State performance, here.

“Bonfire” (Chris Lake Remix) – Felix Jaehn, ALMA, Chris Lake

The English producer’s aesthetic took something of a stylistic detour on his flip of Felix Jaehn‘s ALMA feature, “Bonfire.” The bombastic edit foregrounds booming percussion that renders the remix a fitting set closing cut, given its anthemic, festival poised sonic personality. The intensely melodic offering deviates from the dark, deep bass lines that have grown characteristics of Lake’s house releases.

“How Deep Is Your Love” (Chris Lake Remix) – Calvin Harris, Disciples

Chris Lake’s take on Calvin HarrisDisciples-assisted effort, “How Deep Is Your Love” is eardrum euphoria. The mellifluous re-imaginative showing expounded upon the silken house style of Harris’ single, while amplifying the bass at the break downs. Lake chops Disciples’ vocals at the drops, to augment the rhythmic nature of the descents.

“Sundown (Chris Lake Remix)” – Chris Lake

Chris Lake courts his own original production in his remix of his 2012 single, “Sundown.” In its initial form, “Sundown” surfaced as a vocal-centric offering guided by the gentle strums of a guitar at the onset of the track. A more muted number in the context of Lake’s catalog, “Sundown” gets a club makeover, courtesy of the “Sundown” remix. Lake quickens the cut’s bpm and accessorizes the tune with deep seated pops of bass, to create discerning danceability distinctive to the rework.

“Stay With Me” – Chris Lake

Lake’s latest, “Stay With Me” is a percussively tantalizing new number that derives much of its affective nature from its ethereal vocals. While the production has only just now received an official release, attendees of Lake’s recent live shows will recognize the tune as a staple of Lake’s sets of late. The ID gained traction after Lake played the then unreleased cut during his set at Coachella 2019’s Yuma stage.

“Turn off the Lights (feat. Alexis Roberts)” – Chris Lake

Turn off the lights, but turn up the speakers. “Turn off the Lights” made its debut on Lake’s Black Book Records imprint in 2018, and from there, swiftly secured its status as a dance floor dominator. The percussively oriented club filler couples a plunging bass line with an idiosyncratic amalgamation of synths. A gleaming highlight of Lake’s release history to date, “Turn off the Lights” is a staple not solely of Lake’s catalog, but of modern house music.

STREAM NOW: Watch Chris Lake handle Coachella’s Yuma Stage Weekend 2

STREAM NOW: Watch Chris Lake handle Coachella’s Yuma Stage Weekend 2Header Chris Lake.180913

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.
