PH460

The UK born collaboration of Chris Lake & Chris Lorenzo struck us right in the feels at the end of last year with their Wicked Games cover, and now take things into the club with their new original “Piano Hand”. Premiered by Annie Mac on her BBC Radio 1 Show, “Piano Hand” features a slick bass line groove, quirky cut­up vocal samples, and a very speed garage­-influenced sound very characteristic of Chris Lorenzo. Listen below, and pick it up today on Beatport!

“It’s a four minute twenty five second rippling beat opus that soars and whooshes but holds down the tempo, using the keys and the Armand Van Helden­esque beat builds and rave snares to push it into the strobelights.” – ­DMC World Magazine

It’s playoff season in the NBA which can only mean one thing: Pat Lok is PLAYOFF READY.  Just like Steph Curry, just like LeBron…Pat Lok elevates his (remix) game during playoff season (playoff season in this case meaning that special time of the year when Spring creeps into Summer & all the grooviest songs are produced).  When taking on an Indie heavyweight like The Knocks, Pat Lok didn’t flail like Chris Paul or flop like Blake Griffin (can you tell I hate the Clippers?!?)…he calmly stepped back & hit the game winner.  Check out his remix of “Classic” below & replay that game winning groove over & over…

Queens, NY artist Dart Party poses the question “Are You In?” on his fantastic new single (featuring the talented Govales on vocals).  If Dart Party is talking about an all encompassing track that’s a little bit House, a little bit Disco, a little bit Electro and a lotta bit Dance, then YES…we are in.  This forward thinking, versatile Dance track shines beautifully with its shimmering, soulful vocals, making this the perfect track to dance your Summer nights away to.

“Are You In” is out NOW via Crazy Heart Records. [iTunes]

Watch out for TÂCHES making his way to the U.S. for a run of gigs in June and be sure to pick up this free download.
