etcetc Welcomes Chris Lake to the Label with his Breakout Hit 'Free Your Body'

Fresh off the back of huge sets at Field Day, Origin Fields and Wildlands Festival, etcetc is excited to welcome highly regarded DJ/producer Chris Lake to the label with his single ‘Free Your Body’, with UK duo Solardo, which shows no signs of slowing down.

Setting up camp at #1 on triple j’s Most Played chart from the beginning of 2020, the infectious house track has hit the top 20 of the Australian Shazam chart, top 5 in 15 regional Shazam charts and #26 on the Spotify Viral chart. Australians are ready to free their body.

Combining forces with house aficionados Solardo, Chris Lake connects the dots between his own singular house sound and the equally original output laid down by Solardo. Coming together as a dream pairing that brings out the best of both worlds, ‘Free Your Body’ makes for a razor-sharp weapon that can slice through the shackles of any dancefloor it comes across. ‘Free Your Body’ follows a similar trajectory as FISHER’s massive hit ‘Losing It’ which hit #1 on Beatport’s Tech House chart and accelerated into notoriety in Australia with a top 20 Shazam chart and booming regional charts.

I’ve been following Solardo now for a few years, and loved their productions and style of DJing. We’d talked about doing something together. And finally, they came to L.A., so I invited them to try my local Thai restaurant’s unbelievable food. The fools chose hot spice on all the dishes and instantly regretted it. I watched them cry and sweat for an hour, whilst I pissed myself laughing at them, then we went to the studio and made a beat…This is the beat,” shares Chris Lake.

The banger kicks off with an earnest spoken word opening that makes the listener question the method to the madness. Meanwhile, rolling drums propel the track forward into the hedonistic release that waits ahead. Once the groove reaches its highest potential, it’s impossible not to stay locked in its potent combination of siren-like synths, pulsating basslines, perfectly executed stabs and a liberating vocal that will put you on the path towards freedom.

Featuring in heavyweight DJ sets across the globe and garnering the tick of approval from the likes of Martin Garrix, Tiesto, Oliver Heldens, Alesso and FISHER, as well as radio support from Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1, Diplo & Friends, Danny Howard & CID on Sirius XM, ‘Free Your Body’ is set to continue soaring.

Renowned for teaming up with FISHER in 2019 for ‘Under Construction’, a string of back to back sold out shows at Los Angeles’ Shrine Expo Hall, and a catalogue that has quickly become an imprint for every four-on-the-floor aficionado out there, Chris Lake is riding high on a hot streak. Almost all of his collaborations have caught like wildfire, including the Green Velvet assisted ‘Deceiver’ and the Walker & Royce reinforced ‘Dance With Me.’ It’s safe to say there’s a hit-making trend happening, and Chris Lake doesn’t let that buzz die down in the slightest with this single.
