This week on the Essential House Mix with Lakester (Andy Lakey) a Guest Mix from Defected Records – Cristoph….
There’s a new kid on the block and he is starting to make quite a stir in the North of England. The hugely talented up-and-comer, Cristoph, is set to cause quite a storm in the world of dance music throughout the course of the next 12 months.
Big things are expected from the young Geordie, whose DJ sets and productions range from Deep House to Tech House to Techno, intergrating heavy basslines with quality, uplifting melodies, appealing to a broad spectrum of fans.
Brought up listening to his Fathers Motown vinyl and his older brothers Chicago and Detroit House cassettes, Cristoph’s love of music started at a young age and grew rapidly. After hearing productions by the likes of Masters at Work and Marc ‘MK’ Kinchen his interest in dance music was cemented. In his teens Cristoph messed around with instruments and different production equipment, but by the time he was old enough to experience club culture firsthand he made the realistation that DJing was the true vehicle in which to deliver his music. Over the past couple of years Cristoph has spent considerable periods of time sharpening his mixing and production skills and now he is reaping the rewards with recent bookings in Ibiza and across Europe for his DJing, and labels and fellow producers all starting to take note of his productions.
Predicted by enthusiasts and industry pundits to have big things come his way, Cristoph is on his way to becoming the next shining star and settling himself alongside some of the great DJ’s and producers that England provides.
