Chris Lake is an incredible House DJ/producer from London town that is affiliated with the Mau5trap family. Now, anybody that keeps company / collaborates with guys like Deadmau5, Sébastien Léger, and Dirty South is clearly of interest. His production style varies through pretty much all of the sub genres of House, so there's definitely something for all of you, and I definitely like it when producers can vary up their style without sacrificing quality. I've even seen videos of him dropping Minimal tracks live, but it seems like tons of DJs tend to go more minimal when playing live. Definitely one of the more promising producers in the game right now, and I don't see any signs of him slowing. I'm gonna shamelessly adopt J's style of posting some favorite and then link to my collection at the bottom:
Buttons (Chris Lake Remix) - Sia
I actually just got this track fairly recently and fell in love with it. The second buildup is beautiful. So amazing. The track's got an Electro bass with Housey piano chords and even some Tech House sounds.
Word - Sébastien Léger & Chris Lake
Man this track kicks ass. Great mix of Tech House with that awesome funky guitar sample. You can really hear the styles of both producers in this.
Robots (Original Mix) - Chris Lake
This is an example of Chris Lake creating an Electro House bomb. This even got popularity on a few Electro blogs.
Faxing Berlin (Chris Lake Edit) - Deadmau5
I mean, it's Faxing Berlin.
And for all you DJs out there that want every track, like us, here's my collection so far:
Chris Lake Collection
Leave The World Behind (Daddy's Groove Magic Island Rework) - Axwell, Angello, Ingrosso & Laidback Luke
Absolutely obsessed with this one. God I love House music. I like how Swedish House Mafia replaced Eric Prydz with Laidback Luke, but when you think about it, it makes a lot more sense style-wise.
*NOTE* SHM uses Logic to produce.
