About Chris Lake
As house music becomes ever more ubiquitous, beguiling listeners around the globe, British producer/DJ Chris Lake has cemented his status as one of the genre’s most compelling and massively successful artists, with combined global streams of his songs surpassing one billion. Since making his breakthrough with a string of #1 singles in the late 2000s, the GRAMMY®-nominated musician has toured the globe, bringing his explosive DJ set to virtually every major music festival. His relentless dedication to following his potent creative instincts has seen Lake return repeatedly to Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart with recent hits like “A Drug From God” – his collaboration with Grimes’ new AI girl group, NPC – the long-awaited ID “In The Yuma” (Ft. Aatig) and the transcendent “I Remember.” He teamed up with legendary producer Armand Van Helden for the epic 2020 EP The Answer and his late 2022 remix of KH’s “Looking at Your Pager” quickly became a club staple, supported by the likes of Peggy Gou, Skrillex and Four Tet. Founder of the pioneering record label Black Book Records, Lake has helped launch the careers of Cloonee, Miane, HoneyLuv, Mochakk and numerous other rising artists. Over the past two years, Lake has brought many of Black Book’s artists on his sold-out, outdoor summer block party tour, playing to over 50,000 fans.
Aluna originally got her start as one half of the beloved duo AlunaGeorge, achieving international renown with widespread acclaim, award nominations, major collaborations, and massive tours, but it wasn’t until later that she stepped truly into her power with her debut album Renaissance in 2020 via Mad Decent. Co-produced by Aluna alongside executive producer Lido, and featuring contributions from Princess Nokia, Jada Kingdom, SG Lewis, KAYTRANADA, Scott Storch, GRADES, Mr. Carmack and Rema, Renaissance represented the culmination of her journey of “a black girl in an all-white British suburb back in the day” to launching a rule-breaking revolution where rigid boundaries dissolve between culture, race, gender, and genre. Beyond generating over 100 million streams, it garnered widespread tastemaker acclaim. Pitchfork noted, “The album showcases her curatorial skills…and her range,” while Clash raved, “Renaissance sees Aluna cementing herself as one of the most exciting artists around with this iconic offering that will inspire dance records for years to come.” Now, Aluna gears up to further cement herself as one of the most important curators and voices in dance music with her second full-length solo offering, MYCELiUM (Mad Decent), out now. NPR said, “With an emphasis on queer and/or Black artists from many different countries, she’s built a powerful statement about claiming your power while still leaving space for others.” Billboard observed, “[MYCELiUM] features creative, interconnected work…altogether forming a foundation of diversity that’s the core of Aluna’s mission.”
