House music global artist Chris Lake links up with AI girl group from Grimes NPC on new single “A Drug From God”
In the new single Lake creates an ominous, futuristic soundscape that escalates to spine-tingling heights as the distinctive vocals of NPC extend a thought-provoking invitation:
NPC is a new AI girl group from Grimes, who continues to hone the concepts of her recent albums, Art Angels, which charted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Alternative Albums tally, and Miss Anthropocene.
The British-born, L.A. based producer/DJ recently collaborated with Fritz Carlton on a remix of Joseph Ray and Lakou Mizik’s “Bade Zile,” which is the lead-off track from Black Book ID’s: Chapter 2. The mixtape, which was released last month, also includes contributions from DEL-30, Alex Kennon, Dubesque and CZR & Gettoblaster. With the Black Book ID’s series, Lake’s objective is to instill a sense of discovery in fans, with exclusive, previously unreleased recordings from both established and new artists.
The label teamed up with Astralwerks in late 2020 to release The Answer, Lake’s epic collaboration with legendary producer Armand Van Helden. In addition to his originals, Lake has a string of acclaimed remixes to his credit, including Calvin Harris & Disciple’s “How Deep is Your Love,” Missy Elliot’s “WTF (Where They From)” and MK’s “Body 2 Body.” He also collaborated on Deadmau5’s 4×4=12, which received a GRAMMY nomination for Best Dance/Electronic Album.
