Premiere: Christophe – (theme from) Dance Party


Bristol’s Christophe returns with a new EP this June, entitled ‘(theme from) Dance Party’, comprising three cuts and set for release via the Lovecrimes imprint.

Over the course of a few years, Christophe has been making his mark in the UK’s underground electronic scene, playing shows at Fabric, We Love, Eastern Electrics, XOYO and Lowlife. With releases on Rene Ablaze’s Redux and Futureboogie Recordings, Christophe further indents his name with his first EP on Waifs & Strays and Itchy Rich’s Lovecrimes label.

Lovecrimes : ‘’ This EP is really why we decided to start Lovecrimes – to be able to release amazing music from some of our close friends we have met along the way. Christophe is one of the best DJs I know and a great producer, so when he played Dance Party to me I instantly knew we wanted to sign it to the label. Its a been one of those records that stands out in every set and some one always comes and asks about. To top it off we managed to get one of the hottest artists In the world, the lovely Honey Dijon, to remix it.’’

The original mix of ‘(theme from) Dance Party’ is our debut transmission, which opens the EP with clattering hi-hats that intertwine with syncopated bleeps before Christophe then infuses a rhythmic drive that darts between organic percussion and echoing vocals.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
