Two of dance music’s hottest production names – Chris Lake and Marco Lys – pool their collective talents and join forces on the brand new Nervous Records album Cross The Line.
Cross The Line is a blend of house unique to Chris and Marco’s signature sounds – Disco infused beats, big hands in the air build-ups; classic mesmerising melodies and groovy bass lines. From the funky house of “Running Out (Original Mix),” the Deep South harmonica house of “Humanica Featuring Steve Smith (Original Mix),” the bebop jazz of “Stay Featuring Nastala (Original Mix)” to the Latin fused classic “La Tromba (Original Mix)”and the orchestral electro of “Violins” this album has something for everyone with a track for every dance floor. ?
For the past five years Chris Lake is a name that has become synonymous in house music. As a DJ he’s travelled the globe. As a producer, he’s topped industry charts over and over again. Simply put, he’s become one of the greatest DJ/Producers in the world. In 2009 Chris turned to the Americas with the intention of winning over two of the great musically cultural continents. Two Billboard Dance chart airplay number 1’s and multiple tours, have ensured that from Vancouver to Rio, NYC to Miami… the sound of Chris Lake has travelled far and wide, and is now embraced with loving arms, no matter what the city. As a DJ Chris’ vibe is very different, always enjoying the darker and deeper side of electronic music, yet still fusing in homemade edits, just so the dance floor knows it’s a unique experience and one to be savoured.
Cross The Line is the first proper album to run from a long term collaboration between Chris Lake and his regular studio partner Marco Lys. Born and raised in Italy’s legendary Venice, Marco Lys’s reputation has been forged on endless days in the studio perfecting his unique sound of electro tinged house. His work on labels that include Positiva, Rising Music, Nebula, Oxyd, Audio Therapy, Baroque, Rise and Direction have gained support from the cream of the world’s elite, whilst collaborations with Sam Paganini, Alex Fain, Filo & Peri, Matt Darey, Danny Kirsch, My Digital Enemy and Chris Lake amongst others show his diversity and ability to bend his sound to suit. Marco is also the main force behind Italy’s hottest radio program ‘ In Da Klubb’ that goes out every Friday and Saturday night on the 105 Network, and allows him to showcase his latest sounds to the nation.
Chris Lake and Marco Lys – Cross The Line is released November 29, 2010 on Nervous records.
