The latest in Chris Lorenzo‘s blooming discography, Late Checkout, has arrived as a 12-piece project built for the club. He began teasing the extensive project over the summer of 2019, confirming its name and release date on October 4 and Apple Music guest mix. It’s his second LP, following 2016’s Destroy The Image.
Late Checkout takes listeners on a frenetic ride through UK bass house soundscapes with a touch of breaks thrown in. It wastes no time in upping energy levels, kicking off with a groove-laden “Bad Bitch” that features spitfire vocals from Chynna. Lorenzo taps various collaborators for his album cause, each adding their own unique touch to the finished product. Jinadu’s silky vocals fit nicely into the breaks number “Memories Fade,” while Redlight’s contributions to “Run Up” result in a fast-paced, tense, and warbly number designated for peak time destruction. The Streets, Mark Spence, Aubrey, Dances With White Girls, Nas-T, Cause & Affect, Puppah, and Denise also lend their hand to Late Checkout. Ultimately, we’re left with an album emblematic of Chris Lorenzo’s production range and studio expertise.
Naturally, fans will have quite a few chances to catch bits from the album live as Chris Lorenzo continues to follow an expansive world touring schedule. He’ll be heading stateside after ADE to a number of cities from Tampa to LA, followed by a run in Australia.
