In a moment of clarity while on tour, Chris Lake felt an undeniable urge to refocus his sound and career. “I ended up back in England where I lived for many years with my family, in my mother’s spare room,” he says. “It was like going back to the old me to find the new me.” He then unleashed a stream of funky, ebullient, and majestic club smashes, including: “Chest”, “Stranger”, “Piano Hand” with Chris Lorenzo, “Stomper” with Anna Lunoe, plus celebrated remixes of SNBRN’s “California”, Jess Gynne’s UK chart-topper ”Hold My Hand”, and of course Calvin Harris & Disciples’ “How Deep Is Your Love”.

Among Lake’s credits are several Billboard chart-toppers, a platinum record, a Grammy nomination, a successful record label, and a Midas touch for supporting emerging talent. Enter 2017 and he’s showing no signs of slowing. He kicked off the year with a new record label called “Black Book Records”. The debut release “Operator ft. Dances With White Girls”, was the Holy Ship! anthem by the end of January and gained support from almost every house DJ – from Claude Vonstroke and Green Velvet to Disclosure and Duke Dumont. The viral lyrics became unavoidable at spring festivals. March saw OWSLA release “I Want You” with a gory mind-bending video that’s gained over 3M views. By April a compilation Chris co-curated with Skrillex was released called HOWSLA. It put an emphasis on forward thinking four to the floor records by young producers. The compilation went to #1 in the iTunes Dance Chart and was celebrated at a live-streamed release party. Not only is Chris Lake feeling inspired, he’s overflowing with work. “I’ve got enough material to release a record every 4 weeks for the next 18 months”. He pauses and adds “What drives me forward is innovation and I want to keep pushing my own boundaries. I am as excited as anyone to imagine what I’ll create next.”


Danny Chien doesn’t believe in hype. Better known as Wax Motif, he’s regarded as a major orchestrator in the G-House sound. However, Chien isn’t content on producing the same sound. He’s ready for more challenging work.

With musical influences like R&B, disco and UK bass, the Australian-born producer brings an unique style to the studio, which makes him a highly sought-after producer. Chien released tracks on Tchami’s Confession, Diplo’s Mad Decent, and Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records as well as a host of remixes for the likes of Major Lazer, Deadmau5, YG, Kid Ink, Chromeo, and Warren G’. His work on Destructo’s album on Interscope includes the likes of Ty Dolla Sign, YG, Freddie Gibbs, Problem and Kurupt.

If you’re looking for new music from the producer who counts Diplo, DJ Snake, Tchami, Major Lazer, A-Trak, RL Grime, GTA, Oliver Heldens, Jauz, Knife Party, and more as fans, fret not. Chien is currently working on new music to be released later this year.


Los Angeles based Noizu is quickly climbing through the ranks of house music. Making his debut on the Chris Lake and Skrillex curated ‘HOWSLA’ in 2017 with ‘Lasers’ before catching the eyes and ears of French label boss Tchami. His follow up release saw the Jungle EP, an instant live anthem supported by Diplo, Oliver Heldens, A-Trak, Jauz, Malaa and more.

2018 started with singles ‘LFO’ and ‘Wavey’, gaining huge support from Sirius / Diplo Revolution. The latter in particular receiving over 200 plays.

Noizu’s first official remix came when he was asked by DJ Snake himself to tackle his Lauv featured smash ‘A Different Way’, which boasts over 4.8M Spotify streams at present.

A champion for other new talent, Noizu has always given away his own stems post-release to encourage other young producers and has released several remix EPs highlighting the best new talent he can find.

Other official remix offers came in and he selected songs by Tchami and Valentino Khan. He also took the idea of re-working the classic house anthem “Music Sounds Better with You” to his now friend Malaa. The song was released as a bootleg and has had over 1M Soundcloud plays and tens of thousands of downloads.

With a growing urge to adopt a label boss attitude, he set up Techné Records summer of 2018 with a view to working club releases globally and giving new talent a platform to show their skills. The debut release, a collaboration with Dombresky, could not have gone better. ‘Rave Alarm’ was launched and an instant festival anthem was subsequently made “Hottest Record in the World” by Annie Mac for BBC Radio 1. A top 10 Aria club track in Australia, this track has now been licensed and will receiving a big push with video in 2019. November 2018 saw Noizu make his LA debut, a packed headline show at Sound Nightclub. An incredible landmark for a project barely 18 months old but a true testament to the pace and quality of which the project is heading towards.

Cruising straight into 2019, Noizu started off the year with the much-anticipated release of ‘DANCE’ on Chris Lake’s Black Book Records, which quickly gained the support of some of dance music’s top names including FISHER, Chris Lake, Green Velvet, Claude VonStroke and more. After a packed set at Beyond Wonderland, Noizu gifted fans with his second release of the year ‘No More’ which gained the same ongoing traction of everything before it. Having already been played by some of the top DJs at major events around the world including Miami Music Week and Lollapalooza Argentina, this track is not one to be slept on. The year will undoubtedly continue to deliver more top-quality music on a host of respected labels as the ever-growing list of A-List support, co-signs and fan awareness grows.

Noizu is a project that will take over in 2019 and 2020.
