Two electronic powerhouses – Grammy-nominated producer and Black Book Records founder Chris Lake and leading UK Tech House producer Cloonee – have joined forces on their first collaboration, “Nightmares,” via Black Book Records/Astralwerks. The track arrives after Cloonee’s 2020 signing to Black Book, followed by a handful of shows together in 2021.

While the song innocently starts off with a child’s voice, it eventually breaks through into audio that’s reminiscent of a horror film soundtrack. With a steady, sizzling beat and big brassy tones, “Nightmares” immediately draws listeners in.

“Working with Chris was an absolute honor and a huge milestone in my career that I will look back on fondly,” Cloonee shared in a statement. “It took us a few attempts to land on this record, but I’m incredibly happy that we did as the final result is amazing. It was also nice for Chris to see how a real producer works in the studio.”

“I liked working with Cloonee because he has fantastic taste in British chocolate,” added Lake. “He’s also not a bad producer.”

Later this month, Cloonee will open for Lake at the Under Construction festival at Arizona’s Phoenix Raceway on May 29. The lineup also includes such acts as Fisher, LOCO DICE, Hot Since 82, ANNA, Eli & Fur, Joshwa, Miane, and Sosa.

Both producers have built an impressive roster of credits over the years. Most recently, Lake dropped “400,” the lead single from Chapter 3 of the Black Book ID’s series, while last year, he remixed The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia’s smash hit, “Moth To A Flame.” Cloonee, who is best known for hits like “Love You Like That” and “Sun Goes Down,” made his Black Blook debut in 2020 with “Let’s Rave” and the hypnotizing “What Ya Want.”

Both artists, meanwhile, are gearing up for individual US tours. A full list of dates for each artist is below.
