Black Book Records’ first compilation EP, Black Book ID’s: Chapter 1 has arrived and it packs all the energetic tech house expected from a Chris Lake-led project.
Kicking off the collection, Lake teams up with Italian producer Riva Starr and producer/vocalist lau.ra to present “Beat Freak,” a composition that utilizes a dynamic beat alongside acid-style lyrics. “Trippin” by Dubesque is the second track on the EP, that manages to carry a repetitive beat without boredom.
The compilation also introduces listeners to Fourword, a new producer whose “Snake Charmer” is already Top 10 on the Beatport Top 100 Tech House chart. Finally, the four-track EP closes with “Like I Don’t Exist – NightFunk Remix,” a snappy NightFunk tune that breathes new life into the 2020 release by Nicky Night Time that accentuates the bassline, and downplays the vocal sampling of the original track.
Here is Black Book ID’s: Chapter 1 from Chris Lake.
