With the summer season and Ibiza calendar in full swing, 2019 has seen yet another unreleased Cristoph track send the clubbing community into euphoria, with fans instantly recognising the anthemic sounds of The Temper Trap’s iconic production, ‘Sweet Disposition’.
Undoubtedly the Australian rock foursome’s biggest hit, Cristoph now takes on remix duties, adding his own touch to the original which was released over a decade ago. Taking the production to soar new heights yet still including the haunting vocal chorus, Cristoph delivers another arena-filling production, executed with the grandiosity that has not only awarded the track with worldwide club support, but continues his global adventure and radio-friendly ambitions.
2018 saw Newcastle’s Cristoph collaborate with Camelphat to release last year’s global dance music hit, ‘Breathe’. With videos of the track sending clubbers into overdrive from Ibiza and beyond, ‘Breathe’ arrived on Eric Prydz’ ‘Pryda Presents’ label last November. Crossing over to receive commercial success as well as dominating the underground circuit, ‘Breathe’ reached the top 40 singles chart, along with being certified Silver in the UK. The track also received a momentous reception in the U.S, peaking at number 21 on the U.S Billboard dance club songs chart.
Continuing from where the momentum of ‘Breathe’ never halted, last month Cristoph returned to ‘Pryda Presents’ with the eagerly anticipated follow up. Collaborating once more with ‘Breathe’ vocalist Jem Cooke, ‘Slowly Burning’ again showcased the Newcastle artist’s incredible ability to conjure emotive dance music anthems fit for both club and radio.
Speaking on how his own personal edit of ‘Sweet Disposition’ caught the attention of dance music royalty, Cristoph comments:
“The whole track came about because of a slight obsession with the original vocal. I wanted to make a personal edit for my own sets. I sent it over to Eric Prydz who played it that day at Escape Festival in America. Videos emerged on the internet straight away so we sent it over to a select few DJ’s, one of which being Pete Tong who opened his BBC Radio 1 show with it.”
After a string of releases across seminal labels including Sasha’s ‘Last Night On Earth’ and Yousef’s ‘Circus Recordings’, along with curating the inaugural ‘8 track’ album on Hot Since 82’s ‘Knee Deep In Sound’, Cristoph has become one of dance music’s most in-demand artists. After catching the attention of Eric Prydz, a number of key releases on ‘Pryda Presents’ followed including ‘EPOCH’, ‘Voice Of Silence’, ‘Breathe’ and ‘Slowly Burning’. With Cristoph also holding a residency at Hï Ibiza last summer alongside Eric Prydz, 2019 is set to be the Newcastle artist’s most significant year to date, marked by a busy international touring schedule and more releases to come.
