Set to release his new album '8-track' through Hot Since 82's Knee Deep In Sound imprint next month, 2016 is shaping up to be another epic year for Newcastle native Cristoph.
He's already wowed fans with the album's first single 'Closer' — that features vocals from fellow fast-rising star Jinadu — and now Cristoph is set to spin at EGG LDN to help celebrate DJ Mag's 25th birthday in October.
Pete Tong and Emanuel Satie will join Cristoph on the bill for part two of our 25 Years of DJ Mag party at EGG LDN on 21st October, with part one set to welcome Chris Liebing, Kyle E and Enrico Sangiuliano two weeks earlier on 8th October.
Sounds bonkers, right? Ahead of our impending birthday madness, we've hooked up an exclusive podcast from Cristoph — you can stream it below or via our Soundcloud. We also caught up with the producer for a super fast chat, check out our quick-fire questions below.
