Chris Lake and Chris Lorenzo send in Anti Up’s second white-hot LP piece, ‘Shake’
Anti Up are here to singlehandedly stock the house music shelves before the live event floodgates reopen in the coming months. Chris Lake and Chris Lorenzo set the wheels in motion for their alias’ presently nameless album with “Sensational” at the top of March, and now, the two-headed side project returns for the LP’s even more coveted sophomore branch, “Shake.”
Although an album single announcement is innately tempting in and of itself, “Shake” had just about everyone spread across Lake, Lorenzo, and Anti Up’s socials, collectively attempting to calm down upon its initial disclosure, and for good cause. Similarly to its predecessor, “Shake” was an accessory to Anti Up’s touring circuit during pre-pandemic times, specifically under HARD Summer’s Pink Tent in 2019, and was already deemed to be an absolute military-grade weapon of a track. Lake and Lorenzo dove into a more exploratory, synthwave-laced vein to open up the album, but Anti Up are bringing back a more button-down house fire on their album’s next delivery as “Shake” sends out a white-hot sequence of ’90s-bent punk vocals and an interminable, turbulent ride of house dealings that build out a promising framework for the incoming LP.
