Put Chris Lake and Michael Woods together and you know you’ll get fireworks, exactly what their new collaborative single, “Black Thong”, on Ultra Music, delivers in spades. It’s been over two years since the duo last paired up for an official release, ‘Dominos’, “Black Thong” has us all wondering what took them so long….
Sure to be one of the most anthemic and genuinely huge hooks of the next year, “Black Thong” delivers an epic piano melody, building to an intense drop of pounding bass and squeaky synths. Far from cookie cutter elektro, this is a unique, intense, and, befitting the track’s title, sultry, journey through the progressive house spectrum.
Chris Lake and Michael Woods have been playing the track at some of their biggest shows, including Insomniac’s Beyond Wonderland, where Woods’ “Black Thong” drop was one of the festival’s stand-out moments.
Produced while the British duo were on tour in Canada this fall and completed in the UK, “Black Thong” is released on Ultra Music today. “Black Thong” will be featured on Chris Lake’s forthcoming album for Ultra Music.
