Review: Chris Lorenzo is a natural collaborator. To date, he's penned joint tracks with Hannah Wants, Chris Lake, Katy B and Donkie Punch. For Sleep Talk, he's joined forces with chanteuse Alex Mills, owner of a fine pair of honeyed tonsils. Musically, it's typical Lorenzo, with the producer underpinning Mills' R&B style vocals with dreamy pads, bouncy but robust beats, and a weighty, UK garage influenced bassline. Happily, it rises and falls in all the right places, with Lorenzo getting just the right balance between main room pump and radio-friendly sweetness. In other words, he's delivered another sizeable single.
Review: Originally known as one half of UKG/UK funky/house fusionists Cause & Effect, Chris Lorenzo has decided to venture out on his own for debut album, Destroy The Image. The Birmingham-based producer is known for his love of collaborating and over the 14 tracks here we encounter hook ups with Alex Mills, DJ Zinc and Sam Nicolosi. Highlights include the creeped-out techno mantra of "Come Down", the radio-friendly EDM anthem, "We Are" and the dirty tropical baile attack, "Bad Bitch".
