Having built up specialist support with releases on a plethora of tastemaker labels, including Claude Von Stroke’s Dirtybird label, Shadow Child & Kry Wolf’s lauded Food Music and AC Slater’s Night Bass, Chris Lorenzo has also become prolific on the remix front, putting his trademark spin on the likes of Disclosure, Ed Sheeran, Rudimental, 99 Souls and A Trak, plus many others.

Co-signs have come from the likes of Steve Aoki and Skrillex, the latter who turned up unannounced at Chris’ gig at Night Bass in Hollywood, and duly whisked him off to his studio to collaborate. Shows in Europe with Skrillex followed and Steve Aoki also flew Chris to play alongside him at his Pacha Ibiza residency. Chris was also enlisted by A-Trak to remix his recent single ‘Parallel Lines’ ft. Phantogram.
