Saturday [5.21] – Chris Lake, Treasure Fingers, Vanilla Ace @ Exchange LA
618 South Spring Street, Los Angeles, CA 90014 [10pm-6am, 21+]
Chris Lake – Chris Lake taps into a singular spirit evocative of dance music’s golden age by infusing funked-out grooves and natural instrumentation into decidedly modern house. It’s a sonic aesthetic that instantly incites movement and has established him as a trailblazer in the electronic dance music world. That perspective also set the stage for his forthcoming full-length debut available on Ultra Music in 2014. At 14-years-old, the multi-instrumentalist discovered progressive house music, and his life completely changed with the purchase of a synthesizer. His hobby became a profession shortly thereafter. Lake soon went from releasing much talked-about remixes to dropping dance floor bangers. “Changes” broke the Top 10 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Airplay chart in 2006, while “Carry Me Away” [featuring Emma Hewitt] dominated the same chart a year later. He followed those two early successes up with the Top 10 singles “Only One” and “If You Knew”, effectively breaking into the North American market.
