The remixes are particularly bad ass. Personally selected by Lake, he wanted to put a personal touch on the record beyond his own track, and show some love to the producer/DJs who inspire him. Sebastian Leger sets out to rip us a new ear canal with his tearing electro mix, dark, pared down, and with a distinctive, spare acid house edge, which coupled with the vocal, really messes with your head. Micky Slim & Funkagenda's electro tech take shows why Micky's been making so much noise lately, and Aston Shuffle's is a dose of pure acid funk, with a weird 'live' sounding breakdown.
So what's next for Chris after this massive track? "I'm just trying out some new work in the studio, and I want to see how it goes from there. I'm sure the gameplan will change probably, weekly, but at the moment it's quite open. An album is something I'm bearing in mind, I'm just trying to write some different stuff, put together an album gradually. God knows how long it'll take me though!"
He's certainly got a busy DJing schedule, all around the world, with gigs coming up in Beirut, Riga, Zagreb and Reykjavik, as well as Ibiza, London, Manchester and Madrid. One place he's really looking forward to returning to is Warung in Brazil. "It's the best club I've ever played at, and I'm there again later in the year. I can't wait to get back there!" Chris Lake is set to explode.
