Chris Lake & Sammy Virji Link Up For Euphoric Dancefloor Anthem “Summertime Blues”

When we spoke with Sammy Virji back in February, he told us Chris Lake was on his bucket list of dream collabs. Either he was keeping it a secret or he manifested it, but either way, those dreams are now a reality. “Summertime Blues,” their new track, is out now.

Featuring the shiver-inducing vocals of Nathan Nicholson, this song ensnares the senses from its opening notes. From the banging 4×4 beat on the verse to the swingy bassline on the chorus, Lake and Virji create an unexpected but delightful fusion of garage and tech-house influences. And the drop is just so good, with Nicholson’s falsetto notes blending seamlessly with twinkly synth. Although the song’s outro includes Virji’s signature key change, it still feels like it’s over too quickly, necessitating an instant replay.

Here’s what the Lake & Virji had to say about their new song:

From Chris Lake:

“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.”

And 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.”

You can listen to “Summertime Blues” below. Enjoy!
