Chris Lake and Sammy Virji Release New Collab “Summertime Blues”

Grammy-nominated, chart-topping artist Chris Lake and UK-based DJ/producer Sammy Virji team up on “Summertime Blues” featuring Nathan Nicholson, released today via Black Book Records/Astralwerks.

“Memories are useless, I’ve gotta let ‘em go,” Nicholson sings – and letting go is inevitable as Lake and Virji underpin The Boxer Rebellion frontman’s poignant vocals with a joyous, propulsive anthem poised to ignite summer dancefloors.

Chris Lake said, “I’m so happy I got to work on this track with Sammy and Nathan. I’ve loved their music and vibes for a while. I’m super proud of how ‘Summertime Blues’ turned out. We wanted a drop that felt like the warmth of sunshine and that’s how it makes me feel.

Sammy Virji adds, “Really excited to get ‘Summertime Blues’ out there, was great to work with Chris and Nathan on the single – so gassed for everyone to hear how it turned out.

Lake and Virji received a thunderous reaction when they teased “Summertime Blues” at Sammy’s recent sold-out show at Sound Nightclub in Los Angeles. EDM Identity observed, “The night reached its peak when Chris Lake made a surprise appearance, sending the crowd into a frenzy with unreleased tracks and collaborations. The unexpected fusion of garage and tech house left fans, craving more, cementing the night as a historic moment on Hollywood Blvd.
