Chris Lake odes to 80s house with catchy new cut ‘I Remember’
English-born, Los Angeles-based artist Chris Lake is man of many moves. In addition to his sizeable catalog, Lake has produced a string of acclaimed remixes, including Calvin Harris & Disciple’s “How Deep is Your Love,” Missy Elliot’s “WTF (Where They From)” and MK”s “Body 2 Body.” He’s also collaborated with deadmau5 on 4×4=12, which received a Grammy nomination for Best Dance/Electronic Album. Now the house music pioneer returns with a new single “I Remember,” out now under Black Book Records/Astralwerks.
“I Remember” is the chart-topping producer’s first release since signing to Astralwerks, which is also the new home of Lake’s own Black Book Records. Incendiary and soulful, the track includes a reimagining of the indelible vocal line from the Ralphi Rosario-penned 1987 house classic “You Used to Hold Me.”
Lake launched Black Book Records in 2016. Its first release, Lake’s “Operator” earned support from nearly every house DJ — from Claude Vonstroke and Green Velvet to Disclosure and Duke Dumont. In spring 2017, Black Book released HOWSLA, a collection that highlighted forward-thinking, four-to-the-floor records by young producers that Lake co-curated with Skrillex.
