London-born producer Chris Lake has joined forces with fellow Brit Chris Lorenzo for a brand-new track called “Piano Hand.” The song, which Annie Mac just premiered on her BBC Radio 1 Show, is a summer-ready dance floor banger. The infectious tune, though, only came after a lot urging on the part of the producers’ mutual friend, Micky Slim — but Lake is glad he eventually complied.
“Honestly, I’ve worked with a lot of people,” he tells Billboard, “but Chris Lorenzo stands out as one of the most uniquely gifted producers in dance. I can see why DJs like Hannah Wants sought him out to produce their tracks. He’s gifted. ‘Piano Hand’ has been a weapon for me, and I’m super excited for this to finally be released.”
The second Chris had just as glowing a review of his collaborator — “Working with Chris has been pretty amazing,” Chris (Lorenzo) tells Billboard. “There is never a dull moment and the inspiration is never ending.” For enthused fans, Lorenzo has some reassurance: “For sure there will be many more [collaborations] to come.”
