#FanGirl featuring Chris Lorenzo

By Evie Lavers - January 25, 2017

What’s that sound? I like that sound.. It’s the unmistakable groove of  Birmingham bassline bad man Chris Lorenzo! Lorenzo (or Loz, as he’s affectionately known to his mates) has been evolving THAT jackin’ bass-house sound over the course of 2 decades and a plethora of highly successful releases and collaborations with signings to labels regarded amongstthe DJ elite and the discerning listener alike including (but not limited to) Food Music (brought to you by Shadow Child & Kry Wolf)& Dirty Bird Records (brought to you by the mighty Claude Von Stroke)  but it’s now 2017.. and what better way to see in the year of the bloody Rooster than to drop a full length feature LP!? The delivery of which has proven to be an exceptional serving of bass house goodness! I really like Bass House; a slammin 4/4 beat backed up with a blistering groove bassline.. It’s a combination that is hard to beat.. Some would say Lorenzo is responsible for shaping and pioneering the genre that we all know today as bass house (but that’s the subject for another article in itself) Let’s get back to the release at hand though, ‘Destroy The Image’ as it’s been aptly titled, and Destroy it does.. From creamin' the panties of the coolest crop in Croatia to giving the raving rinsers of Perth something to get low to, ‘Destroy The Image’ is setting the bar for delivery of full length feature records, which have always been a hard feat to conquer for electronic artists. Rather than the status quo of single releases in this digital world we live in. Great Album achievement's (especially ones with little to no fillers) aren't celebrated enough these days.

Here are some of my favourite Chris Lorenzo sounds;
The Girl Is Mine (featuring Destiny's Child & Brandy) (Chris Lorenzo Remix)
Chris Lorenzo & Katy B - I Wanna Be LIVE
Hannah Wants & Chris Lorenzo - Rhymes
Zinc - Show Me (Cause & Affect Remix)
Cause and Affect  - Poppin

If you’ve ever caught a Cause and Affect set at Shambhala or witnessed Chris Lorenzo flyin solo gettin’ low in the Ambar bass-ment or even just nodded your head to one of his sets while cruising through traffic, you’ll know that his sets are packed with groove laden, dancefloor fillers, dirty, bass house bangers and even some broken beat treats of the highest order . What else would you expect from a vibe creator at the peak of his game?

Nelson Peeps! This Wednesday (Feb 1) Chris will be gracing the beautiful Bloom Nightclub. Limited  pre-sale tickets available from Ripping Giraffe. Let's Dance! RSVP HERE!
