After releasing the lead single just weeks ago, Chris Lake and Armand Van Helden publish their four track EP ‘The Answer’.
The house legends unite for a terrific package that showcases their various talents that have manifested throughout their many years in music.
“‘Why Can’t We See’ gave us our mantra for making the record: love is the answer,” explains Armand Van Helden. “The title track came together so quickly. We just followed the energy in the room.”
The uplifting ‘Feel So Good’ percolates with joy and sensuality and embodies Lake’s approach to making music. He explains, “All I’m really looking for is to get people on the dancefloor, and by the time they finish they realize, ‘Oh, God, my feet really hurt.’ I want them to dance and let go and feel good.”
The effervescent ‘Work!’ was inspired by Van Helden’ stales of the vibrant New York City voguing scene of the 90’s. Chris Lake recalls, “We wrote ‘Work!’ whilst imagining there being a big vogue-off to the song.” The groovy, silken ‘Dubai Dublin’ perfectly rounds out the EP.
Alongside the EPs release, the pair have also dropped the music video for the first single, directed by Adrian Villagomez.
