The name Chris Lake has been the talk of electronic music for the past six years. Six years in which he has accomplished more than most could in a lifetime. Six years in which you’d expect other artists’ popularity to fade. Not Chris.
The latter half of 2011 saw the man himself sign an album deal with American powerhouse Ultra Records and unleash the single “Sundown”, which went top ten on Beatport and clocked up another ‘world famous Essential New Tune’ accolade on Pete Tong’s Radio 1 show.
Off the back of “Sundown’s” global success, 2012 saw Chris continue at the same uncompromising pace with the single “Build Up” hitting stores in February. Further singles are to follow whilst Chris puts the finishing touches to his hotly- anticipated album, which features collaborations with the likes of John Dahlback, Benji Madden from Good Charlotte, Tommy Trash and Lazy Rich to name a few.
Now residing in LA, Chris Lake’s decision to take on North America’s booming Electronic Dance Music scene is testament to his ever-growing popularity in the US, choosing to tour all year. With demand growing day by day for dance music Stateside, Chris’s profile is set to sore to even greater heights. Heights that have already seen the Scot scoop Billboard Chart number ones, grace MTV and entertain thousands from Vegas to Ibiza… and that’s only scratching the surface.
