Canadian Electro-stomper Richard Billis, better known to the world as Lazy Rich, returns to Rising Music following last year’s ‘Damage Control’ with a new original release featuring Gita Lake, the wife of Gita Lake and vocalist of ‘Sundown’ and ‘Stand Up’ fame.

While the original leaps from subtle piano play and Gita’s discordant yet infectious vocal line to pulsing low-end drops, the accompanying remix sees John Dahlback on hand to chop ‘Insomnia’ into a bleep-happy formula.

Out today on Beatport.

In the wake of the long overdue official release of the original off LE7ELS Recordings, Avicii’s ‘Silhouettes‘ gets the remix treatment from an unexpected assortment of producers from across the globe.

First to bat for the remix package, newly signed LE7ELS protégé Syn Cole, formerly known as Clashback, takes the lead with a Creamfields-dedicated remix of high-pitched synth lines and sturdy kicks. But where the aforementioned Estonian builds upon the Swede’s familiar synth stylings, Swiss producer EDX and Vancouver’s Lazy Rich bring persistent misshapen chord play and bass-heavy beat work into the equation to round off the package with two heavier-set remodels.

On the back of his ongoing relationship with Mau5trap and such mixed landmark releases as ‘Build Up’ and ‘I Saw This Before‘, Chris Lake’s third single from his forthcoming album sees him unite with Canadian Electro-stomper Lazy Rich for another trophy for the British heavyweight.

Building on the discordant yet infectious vocal line provided by Jareth, Lake & Rich embark on a solid outing of eclectic transition and definitive force from the first note. Leaping from subtle bass surges to pulsing low-end drops, the precision and energy to which this double-team work towards is a promising mark on both respective producers and their impending legacies across the globe.

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.

If his close to 5 years worth of essential contributions to the Electro House scene has taught us anything, it is that producing quality has always been coming natural for Vancouver’s Lazy Rich. With forthcoming collaborations alongside Zedd, Ellie Goulding and Chris Lake, Lazy Rich joins forces with fellow countryman Armaan Hirshee, better known as just Hirshee, and Sydney-based songstress Amba Shepherd for ‘Damage Control’. Graced with Shepherd’s fairly seductive top line, ‘Damage Control’ merges an enigmatic interlude with fierce Electro House á la Lazy Rich for another unprecedented offering on the two Canadian’s behalf.

‘Damage Control’ will be released on June 4 through Chris Lake’s Rising Music.

Despite his name, Vancouver’s Lazy Rich has since he began producing back in 2007 proven to be one of the more hard-working producers of North America’s ever growing electro-house roster. Having mainly made himself known through his hard-hitting remix works lately, Rich is back on original production, releasing his first original contender for 2012.

Fairly reminiscent of the work we’ve seen Zedd put out over the past 10 months, ‘Breakfast of Champions’ is arguably electro-house at its best. Representing Canada-based Big Fish Recordings, the latest release out from camp Lazy Rich features a frisky interlude in conjunction with chugging leads and heavy-stepping kicks to make this a worthy first original release in 2012 on the rapidly ascending Canadian’s behalf.

As Chris Lake has crawled into the hearts of heavy-headed clubbers across the globe, it is fair to say his studio intellect has rapidly risen to the heights of universal supremacy. On the back of his ongoing relationship with Mau5trap and such mixed landmark releases as ‘Build Up’ and ‘Sundown’, his next collaborative effort alongside Canadian Electro-stomper Lazy Rich for Ultra makes for another trophy for the British heavyweight.

Building on the infectious yet soulfully tuned vocal line provided by Jareth, Lake & Rich embark on a solid outing of eclectic transition and definitive force from the first note. Dropped for the first time amid an exclusive guest mix for Pete Tong, this is a definitve and even more varied offering from two artists very much in tune with their truly captivated audiences. Leaping from subtle bass surges to pulsing low-end drops, the precision and energy to which this double-team work towards is a promising mark on both respective producers and their impending legacies across the globe.

Where versatile German Electro front Zedd made positive marks with acclaimed offering ‘Stars Come Out’, a star-studded remix package of Electronic Dance Music advocates for Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak imprint scored some positive tensions into the tracks already boisterous infamy. Calling upon the vocal accolades of divine diva Heather Bright, Brighton based Progressive asset turned Size Records protégé Tim Mason keeps things simple with a formative outing of pitch perfect synths and essential singalong moments. Less euphoric, more chaotic, Vancouver bred Electro maestro Lazy Rich deals in sharply ornamented chords and intricately woven moments of fuzz, while hereditary master of the Swedish middle-ground John Dahlback throws all the vigour he can at a persuasive peak time rendition of frantic synth play and momentous transitions to mark a successful extension of the originals widespread appeal.
