After months of excited speculation and feverish forum hype, Chris Lake and Marco Lys have finally announced debut collaboration album, ‘Cross The Line’. In addition to their Beatport chart-topping club anthems, including ‘La Tromba’, ‘Violins’, and ‘Humanica’, this 9 track album contains unreleased new material. In a scene populated by identikit productions, Chris Lake and Marco Lys make dance music that stands out, delivering big disco house numbers, riff-heavy electro, latin grooves and tracks that defy even the most ardent genre junkie. It’s this ability to produce memorable, anthemic cuts that’s earned the continued support of Francois K, Pete Tong, Laurent Garnier, Axwell, Deadmau5, Swedish House Mafia, and many more.
At the vanguard of a new wave of UK dance music stars, Chris’ path to success is that which all bedroom producers aspire to: he’s gone from being someone who grew up listening to Pete Tong’s Radio 1 show, to landing Pete’s coveted Essential New Tune accolade for all his productions. Chris’ discography combines underground bombs (with the support of luminaries including Sasha, Carl Cox, Justin Robertson, Danny Howells, Sander Kleinenberg, and others), with chart denting crossover club hits (‘Changes’, ‘The Only One’). Not adverse to a bit of A&R action himself, Lake’s Rising Music label has become a mark of quality for anyone seeking beautifully executed main room house music.
Currently an exclusive resident for Cream, Ibiza, Chris is one of clubland’s most valuable British exports to the US, enjoying a gig schedule that takes him to the four corners of the earth. Marco Lys, Lake’s regular studio cohort, is the Italian DJ/producer with a back catalogue that reads like a who’s who from the dance music label landscape: Positiva, Rising Trax, Nebula, Oxyd, Audio Therapy, Baroque, Flying, Rise, Direction, and many more.
The album is released on the 18th of October on Rising Music.
