Black Book ID’s opens its third chapter and welcomes brand new music from Chris Lake, Franklyn Watts, Gettoblaster and more!
Chris Lake has carved out a name for himself that needs little introduction and one year ago, he opened the door into the inner workings of his label Black Book Records with the debut of Black Book ID’s, sharing a glimpse into the world of some of house music’s brightest rising superstars. Now, as festival season kicks off, there’s no better way to welcome the warmer months than with a new batch of freshly minted house heaters on Black Book IDs Chapter 3.
This series reminds everyone why it is essential to dig a little deeper and search a little longer to expose some incredibly talented artists – ones that may be unknown at the time but bring so much to the table. For this go-around listeners are taken deep into the hearts of Franklyn Watts, Ango Tamarin, Gettoblaster, and Pimpo Gama, along with a fresh tune from the label boss himself.
Chris Lake kicks the third chapter into high gear with his Latin influenced, festival-ready slammer “400.” Those lucky enough to attend Skyline Festival earlier this year may have caught a glimpse of his latest banger that has only solidified South America’s influence on the house music scene as of late. Be on the lookout for Chris Lake’s “400” to dominate this summer’s festival circuit, as he reminds everyone of his status as a leader of the genre.
Included in this installment is the sure-to-be summer smash “Bom Bom” from rising LA-based producer Franklyn Watts, who built a powerful momentum with releases on Dirtybird, CUFF, and more in the past. His latest release incorporates electrified synth stabs, bubbling bass, and an infectious kick-snare rhythm to light a fire in your dancing shoes in no time at all. We can’t wait to see what this powerful young producer has up his sleeve for 2022.
Looking ever-deeper into this fresh chapter of Black Book ID’s reveals blooming underground producer Ango Tamarin who lands a knockout punch with “Have a Nice Day 😉.” This aggressive tech-house banger that delivers driving hats, robust drums, and a warehouse-ready drop that will have both hands in the air on the first listen. The future looks bright for this young producer, and he is quickly becoming one to watch after previous releases on labels like Truesoul, Toolroom, and now Black Book Records.
Up next is emerging American duo Gettoblaster, with their powerful, club-ready banger “Booty Shake” that features DJ Funk. The pair takes strong influence from their respective hometowns of Chicago and Detroit and mashes the two styles together to create something of their own. “Booty Shake” reminds everyone that this unstoppable duo is here to stay, and their unique brand of Ghetto House is welcome with open arms.
Black Book IDs Chapter 3 ushers in its curtain call with a flourish of tech-house mastery from Brazillian mainstay Pimpo Gama. It’s no surprise why Pimpo Gama has made a name for himself over the years, as his ability to capture emotion through sound and leave us on the edge of our seats is second to none. While he’s had significant releases on Spinnin’ Records, Dirtybird, his latest single, “Play That Bass,” signals his Black Book debut and some of the EP’s most substantial sound design.
Chris Lake has once again proven that he’s one of the most in-demand artists in house music right now, but his influence over the scene comes front and center with Black Book IDs Chapter 3. Grab your copy on Beatport, take a listen on Spotify, and continue on for a deeper dive into this release!
