KC Lights, Lapsley “Better Times”

With Summer well and truly underway, Toolroom are set to unveil the hotly anticipated return of renowned Glaswegian artist KC Lights, as he delivers yet another classic record in the making – ‘Better Times’, featuring the stunning voice of Merseyside-hailing Låpsley. A debut collaboration for the pair, as they drop a sun-soaked, cut of Disco infused House that will undoubtedly soundtrack the long summer evenings to come in 2023.

A label favourite in every sense of the word, KC Lights is most-known for his 2020 smash-hit ‘Girl’, a record you couldn’t switch off from throughout that summer, followed up by his classy cut ‘Cold Light’ the following year with reputable vocalist and songwriter Leo Stannard, who also appeared on his summertime anthem ‘Daydreamer’. If there’s one thing KC Lights can do time and time again, it’s writing infectiously catchy, timeless records that you’ll hear almost anywhere you go, from underground clubs to radio stations and beyond.

Featuring on the record is critically acclaimed vocalist and songwriter Låpsley, who rose to fame back in 2016 with her debut LP ‘The Long Way Home’ on the legendary XL Recordings. Of course, you can’t forget DJ Koze’s massive disco edit of ‘Operator’, which shot Låpsley through the stratosphere. With a string of huge hits and a voice to match, KC Lights and Låpsley come together on ‘Better Times’, offering a glimpse of a bright summer to come that we’re itching to get into already.
