CHRIS LORENZO | CLUBS PREVIEW
Sink @ Sin City, Swansea
Sat 9 Dec
If you haven’t heard a Chris Lorenzo-produced jam in 2017, where have you been? The prolific Brummie producer’s sound – a hybrid of 4/4 jack, rude garage basslines and mid-range screech that scientists have reportedly found to creates the perfect sonic frequency for a club to ‘go off’ – has been an inescapable fixture of UK night for some years. It’s also found a lot of favour in Wales, including Swansea, with a similar-ish promotion running in Sin City the night before. Overkill? Perhaps, but if the punters are lapping it up then it seems churlish to stop.
Lorenzo’s path to fame has been a curious one. For many years, he went uncredited, a prolific ghostwriter for hire, most notably for Radio 1’s Hannah Wants. He also forms one half of the duo Cause & Effect. But since 2014 he’s stepped out of his own shadows and been making a name for himself through his own enviable production and DJ chops.
Sink has been responsible for bringing some huge names from across the gamut of bass music to Swansea over the years – everyone from Congo Natty to Mike Skinner have passed through, so Lorenzo is in good company. Support comes from the able hands of the Sink residents. This one’s going to get bassy.
