For the past six years, Chris Lake has been living the dream. As a DJ he’s travelled the globe. As a producer, he’s topped industry charts over and over again. As a lover of music, he continues to chase down the freshest beats around. Simply put, he’s become one of the great DJ/ Producers of the modern world.

In 2009 Chris turned to the Americas with the intention of winning over two of ‘the’ musically cultured continents. Two Billboard Dance chart airplay number 1’s and multiple tours, have ensured that from Vancouver to Rio, NYC to Miami… the sound of Chris Lake has travelled far and wide, and is now embraced with loving arms, no matter what the city.

The question is, what is the sound of Chris Lake? Yes, he is known for his musical crossovers, and based on the success of ‘Changes’, ‘La Tromba’, ‘Only One’ and ‘If You Knew’, why not? The latter, taking the number one spot in the Music Week, Buzz and Cool Cuts charts, while the accompanying music video was praised by MTV and broke into its Top 5 weekly chart.

As a DJ his vibe is very different, always enjoying the darker and deeper side of electronic music, yet still fusing in cheeky edits and homemade tracks, just so the dance floor knows it’s the Chris Lake experience and one to be savoured.

2010 kicked off with a Michael Woods remix of his collaboration with good friend Deadmau5 ‘I Said’ taking Pete Tong’s first ‘Essential New Tune of the decade.’ That was to be just the beginning… further works with Michael Woods on ‘Dominos’ and another BBC Radio 1 hit, this time with Nelski on ‘Minimal Life’ – all peaking with his Lake & Lys album ‘Cross the Line’, launched mid way through his residency at Cream Ibiza with deadmau5 and Friends. The year ended in fine style, Chris and Marco, once again ripping up a re-edit, this time Nightrider’s ‘Hey’ got the treatment – another Buzz Chart No.1 for the guys.

The last ten months have seen Chris develop his taste for both disco and North America, in particular, Los Angles; a permanent move to the West Coast is now imminent. His Northern Hemisphere summer consisted of a third year at Cream Ibiza, a full scale European tour as well as his first performance at one of the UK’s most banging festivals – yes, that would be Creamfields ’11. Make no mistake, despite another amazing Ibiza season, his North and Southern American fans are now strong in numbers, demanding a regular presence almost every quarter, consequently, Chris is now extremely well versed in trans-atlantic travel.

On the studio front, Chris once again got out of the starting blocks early with a BBC Radio 1 Essential Contender feature for Secrets in the Dark; whilst the Alex Kenji edit did amazing things on the viral side, taking a Hype Machine Twitter no.1 spot along the way. The follow up, ‘Colours’, produced from start to finish with Rising Music star Nelski hit hard and that pounding electronic sound became something of an inspiration for his controversial remake of Lady Gaga’s ‘Judas’ – the fans are still talking about it on YouTube. Just before Chris’ collaboration with Nightriders on ‘NYC’ hit the digital shelves, Pete Tong got him in the studio for a July edition of the Hot Mix; and despite virtually zero promotion of the tracklist, ‘Sundown’ instantly became the word on all tip of everyone’s tongues. One week later, it was Pete’s Essential Contender, and the following week Chris earned his umpteenth Essential New Tune title.

We used to say Chris Lake could be associated with the word ‘accomplished’. These days there is little need to associate him with any saying or such adjective. Chris Lake is Chris Lake, and the above speaks for itself. If you buy his music you’ll get it, and if you have a chance to see him live, you’ll get it even more.

Top Hits: "Sundown", "Only one"
