With almost 5-years of quality contributions to the ever-expanding realms of Electro House, Vancouver’s own Lazy Rich can safely say he has led with quality throughout. Enroute to his highly anticipated collaborative stints with Ellie Goulding, Zedd and Chris Lake, the Canadian House cruncher is joined by fellow countryman Hirshee and familiar Australian vocal-piece Amba Shepherd for the authentically powerful ‘Damage Control’.
While Sheperd’s dynamic yet sophisticated vocal stylings weave seamlessly alongside the tracks scintillating lead play, Rich does not take long to return to that all-too-familiar bump and grind that has championed the Canadian producer and his likeminded peer from the outset. Driving deep and grinding chord work alongside the aforementioned lead movements, ‘Damage Control’ sets the tone for the future to an enigmatic high for this multifaceted producer well and truly on top form for 2012.
