No doubt House music has a long history and I was never there throughout when it all started (not even close). I have to admit that it took me a while before I got into the Electronic Dance Music scene and Chris Lake was a big part of getting me into the scene.
Coming from London Town, Chris Lake has come a long way since 2001. His musical journey include being an avid music producer, a globe-trotting DJ and a music lover who’s constantly hunting down the best beats and tunes in the market. As tempting as it is to try and label a certain DJ with a post-it note and the specific type of electronic music genres that they are should fit into, I strongly believe that Chris Lake is a producer/mixer of versatility and should not be constrained or strictly categorized. However, despite the versatility in which Chris Lake has produced a wide variety of tracks (some more fast paced and rougher, some softer and smoother), I can’t deny that most (if not all) of Lake’s tracks contain some sort of sexiness in it.
Let’s just say there’s almost a different Chris Lake track for each different happy (or sexy) occasion.
Chris Lake Feat. Nastala – If You Knew (Original Mix)
I can never emphasize enough on how much I love this track. It’s also the track by Chris Lake that sucked me into the goodness of the electronic dance music scene or more specifically, the house music scene. Believe it or not, this track is still one the most played in my iTunes (since I first heard it in 2008). Also, because of this track, it’s so hard for me to consider any other track that’s sexier and more sensual.
Chris Lake Feat. Laura V – Changes
Next up on my list would be the single featuring the vocals of Laura V. What can I say? Sexy! It’s the perfect anthem for a girls night out sipping martinis. It’s these kinda tunes that make one feel confident about themselves (or so I feel).
And here’s the version without vocals
Chris Lake Feat. Emma Hewitt – Carry Me Away
On the same level of sexiness, the track “Carry Me Away” is Chris Lake’s 2007 single which features the vocals of the lovely Emma Hewitt.
Besides the insanely sexy tunes, Chris Lake also has several tunes under his belt which I’d like to be known as “The Chris Lake’s Summer Anthems”.
Chris Lake & Marco Lys (Lake & Lys) – La Tromba
La Tromba, a collaboration between Chris Lake and Marco Lys in which they produced this massive track which is exotic with an energetic vibe that’s playful and cheery. A perfect track for an outdoor pool/beach party!
Chris Lake & Marco Lys “Cross The Line”
Yet another “summer anthem” by Chris Lake and Marco Lys
Chris Lake – Sundown
Next is a 2011 release of Chris’ new single titled “Sundown”. I’d like to describe this track as a blend between summer and sexy. The track features the sexy vocals of GiTA, who’s also the vocals for “If You Knew” and plenty of other Chris Lake’s tracks.
Also, don’t miss Chris Lake’s upcoming release which also features the amazing vocals of GiTA. Here’s the official teaser and album art video of the track.
