Chris Lake on

On one rainy day in Birmingham, Chris Lake (Rising/Mau5trap) and Chris Lorenzo (dirtybird/food music) met in the studio and produced this edit of Chris Isaak’s classic jam Wicked Games. Once they got a hold of the acapella, they knew they had to build a track around it. Everything was recorded using live instruments and they used no samples except the acapella of course. The result is this “Lush” “vacant but absorbent” edit that is something even your mother could dance too. Grab it below for FREE DL!

After months of anticipation, TJR has released the REAL preview to his upcoming single “What’s Up Suckaz,” due out on Chris Lake’s Rising Music on July 22nd. Similar to “Ode to Oi,” the new single from TJ represents the bubbling Melbourne Bounce sound, with rolling, crunchy synth breakdowns and an energy level fit for the Tasmanian devil. A very big tune that you’ll hear all over the place this summer and fall…

Last year’s collab track “Shake & Bake” from Nom De Strip & Bones spread like wildfire after support from the likes of Diplo, Tommy Trash and Chris Lake helped skyrocket its exposure – so far as to catch the attention of Australian diva Kylie Minogue, who loved it so much she insisted on recreating it to be her own sexy original. With the approval of NDS & Bones and the help of Chris Lake, the new version was just released on Nom’s soundcloud yesterday (written by The Dream), with already an incredible response at over 150k plays.

Check it out below, and be on the lookout for its official release!

Our good friend Mr. Pegnato, or Hot Mouth, just released his debut EP, Habits, on Rising Music last week, and we couldn’t be happier about the great response it’s received thus far. The pair of tracks, ‘Good Habits’ and ‘Bad Habits,’ are two big time Progressive House tracks perfectly fitted for a main stage smash, and with a name like Chris Lake fully supporting the EP on his own label, I’m sure we’ll be hearing Habits, good or bad, this upcoming summer season.

Pick up the EP on Beatport and jump down for the latest installment of the GDD™ x Hot Mouth Mix Series. Continue Reading

The golden tune is finally coming out next week. After months of mystery and anticipation, TJR is unveiling ‘Funky Vodka’, his soulful swingin’ ruckus of a jam.

Set to release on Chris Lake’s Rising Music on February 20th, I can’t wait to see the widespread success and support (not to mention the remixes that will follow!)
