The weather is plunging as we approach deepest darkest winter and to warm you up we’ve decided to bring you a fresh premiere from Cristoph on Vancouver based imprint Nordic Trax. Known for bringing artists to the foreground, Luke McKeehan’s imprint introduces us to another promising talent in Cristoph with his ‘Big H’ EP presenting an effective collection of bass-driven deep house that’s been road tested during his sets in Ibiza and across Europe.
‘Big H’ chugs out of the starting blocks with reverberated congas and syncopated hat sequences. Nifty melodicism and tenebrous vocal chops sit above a robust foundation as tension continues to climb to the close. Nacho Marco’s remix then wades in with neatly mapped percussion ahead of some allaying synth tones and a rich bass pattern before VMC kicks off with palpable claps and hats swinging alongside panned vocal chops and a taught kick. A hypnotic synth sequence skewers through the mix before vocals are layered to handraising effect whilst the Dub version keeps things anchored down with a slightly more brooding atmosphere.
