Chris Lake is a British musician and producer who specializes in electro house music. A skilled keyboardist who first rose to prominence with his bootleg remixes of "Sweet Dreams" by the Eurythmics and Prodigy's "Climbatize" in 2006, he was originally known by the moniker Christophe D'Abuc. To date, Lake has charted over three dozen singles, many of which have cracked Billboard's Top 10 list. Lake considers himself to be as much of a DJ as a musician with the ability to spin familiar tunes into new and exciting sounds.
Spinning Out a Career in Deep House
Though the former Christophe D'Abuc has been around since the turn of the millennium, his career didn't experience a shift into high gear until 2015 with the release of five new tracks on Ultra Records. Unlike some of the electro house (also known as "deep house") music of the era, Lake's esoteric, pared-down approach was the subject of much industry praise. He would go on to collaborate with Chris Lorenzo, Anna Lunoe and Skrillex among others. Some notable Chris Lake live appearances include his set at the Hard Day of the Dead festival in 2015 and a performance at the Indy 500 Snake Pit in May 2019.

What can I expect from a Chris Lake concert?
Despite his many years in the business, Chris Lake continues to draw a young crowd, so expect to see plenty of millennial hipsters in baseball caps. His sound is very infectious and easy to dance to, so don't plan on standing still for too long. Even if you aren't in the mood for dancing, the people around you will almost certainly make it difficult to remain in one place. The crowd is also likely to contain a number of enthusiastic drinkers, so you should also prepare yourself for some potentially rowdy behavior.
How long does a Chris Lake concert usually last?
Lake will occasionally appear as part of a group act, such as at the upcoming Das Energi Festival in Magna, Utah. If you're interested in the entire performance, plan on spending at least three hours at the venue. If you're there specifically for Lake, his set probably won't last more than an hour or so.
What does Chris Lake's tour setlist look like?
Lake's 2016 hit "Operator" is a tour staple, and since he'll be touring behind "Stay With Me," you can expect it to make an appearance as well. Other than that, it's usually a mixed bag as he has dozens of mixes to choose from, and his style is prone to improvisation. The show is more about the vibe and the overall experience than it is about the individual songs.
