Chris Lorenzo impresses on newest LP, ‘Late Checkout’ [STREAM]
UK producer Chris Lorenzo is one name that is constantly pushing the boundaries of the house music genre. Whether it’s his infectious Bass Mentality releases or his collaborative efforts with Chris Lake as Anti Up, the Dirtybird affiliate is constantly cooking up high-energy, house-centric tracks that span the vast terrains of the dance music spectrum.
Now Lorenzo is back with his newest full-length studio album, Late Checkout. Clocking in at 12 tracks and featuring collaborators with everyone from Dances With White Girls on “Here Kitty” to Redlight on “Run Up, Late Checkout is a sure-fire way to get the body moving. Throughout the journey, Lorenzo takes listeners through a range of styles from downtempo, bass house, and DnB to jungle bass lines with a ragga flare and, yes, even breakbeat.
Standouts on the album include “Work,” which has been featured in plenty of house music sets lately, and “Take Me As I Am,” which brings Lorenzo together with The Streets for a dynamic floor stomper. Widely acknowledged for pioneering a sound that has become increasingly prominent throughout the UK, United States, and many other parts of the world, Lorenzo’s flawless production and high-octane DJ sets have earned him a place in the ranks of EDM.
