Cristoph – The British Producer, DJ, born and bred in the North-East city of Newcastle continues his pursuit of progressive dance anthems by proudly launching his new label “Consequence of Society”.
The name Consequence of Society may be familiar to many fans as title of his 2015 EP that helped cement his production talents and breakthrough in a year that went on to be an important one for the emerging DJ, Eric Prydz protégé, and one of progressive house music’s most glowing new artists.
‘Turning Away’ featuring Ross Quinn marks release number one with all the intricately powerful hallmarks of an artist at the forefront of a genre. Layered and euphoric, Ross Quinn’s vocal rewards Cristoph’s inaugural label release with an impressive feeling of exuberance and melancholy.
‘Turning Away’ with its deep and driving roots serves as both a statement of intent and an emotionally adoring lineage to early 2000’s dancefloor memories that have gone on to define his sound, with consistency and conviction.
Cristoph has released music on some of the most prestigious labels in the progressive house scene, including Bedrock, Last Night On Earth, Truesoul, Knee Deep in Sound, Yoshi Toshi, and Selador. More recently, he collaborated with Franky Wah to release ‘World You See’ on the legendary Pryda Presents label, a single that has nearly 4 million Spotify streams.
His production tone is undeniably rich and multi-layered; Cristoph delivers another arena filling production, executed with the same grandiosity that has not only awarded him with worldwide club support, but continues his global adventure and radio-friendly ambitions.
Speaking on the launch Cristoph says, “It’s always been a career goal to run my own label, it was just of a question of ‘when’ rather than anything else”.
With the long await and potentially long overdue launch of Consequence of Society as a label for initially only his own productions, we can be sure to expect a signature sound, one that gets even more unique the further it grows and expands.
“During the pandemic I started to write a wider variety of music across the house and techno spectrum to try and keep as active as possible and broaden exactly what I do, so more of my own music could fit in to the longer, extended sets I play. Once lockdown lifted, I found myself with an abundance of tracks and loving the fact I had total artistic freedom. Because of this, the team and I decided that now would be a good time to launch my own platform for the records as I would be completely in charge of what I released, when I released and how often I released. The name of the label has been an idea I’ve used for a fair few years now and stems from the whole concept of the music I love and play being a consequence of the society I grew up in” – Cristoph
His unique style has led to the creation of some stunning tunes over the years; 2018 saw him collaborate with Camelphat to release the 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 in November 2018. Crossing over to receive commercial success as well as dominating the underground circuit, ‘Breathe’ reached the top 40 singles chart, along with being certified gold 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.
With the summer season and Ibiza calendar now in full swing, 2022 is set for another Cristoph vocal track to send the clubbing community into euphoria.
