“Sundown” is an anthem in the making. A secret weapon during European summer sets, “Sundown” features all that Chris Lake has become notorious for. A rolling bassline which knocks, a gorgeous melody built on an acoustic guitar riff, building synths and the ever lovely vocals that are a guaranteed sing along to champion any dance floor.
And that’s only the original. Take all of that and have it remixed by Laidback Luke, Lazy Rich, Kyle Watson, Taurus & Vaggeli and Ronda, you know there’s bound to be more than one hit coming from this package.
Pete Tong got him in the studio for a July edition of the Hot Mix; and despite virtually zero promotion of the tracklist, “Sundown” instantly became the word on the tip of everyone’s tongues. One week later, it was Pete’s Essential Contender, and the following week Chris earned his umpteenth Essential New Tune title.
