Christophe - Gotta Release


Cat No: HYPEDIGI043 
Artist: Christophe 
Title: Gotta Release 
Label: Hypercolour 
Release Date: 28th April 2014 

At the heart of Bristol’s house resurgence over the last few years resides a DJ, producer, graphic designer and general vibesman, Christophe. A regular face on the scene for many years, his releases and inspired DJ sets for the Futureboogie label has catapulted this Welshman into the limelight, clocking up gigs at Fabric, XOYO alongside Eats Everything, Garden Party, Lowlfe & more. Add to this his recent success as part of the Sure Thing collective, (alongside DJ Die, Joker et al), and collaborations with Lukas, the future’s looking bright for our Chris… 

His debut release for Hypercolour comes in the shape of ‘Gotta Release’, a big sounding production that perfectly encapsulates the Christophe ethos; classic house sounds with a strong melody, hands in the air pianos and a sweet vocal lick, and a production value that the Def Mix crew would be proud of. 

Supporting the release, a couple of remixes from Hypercolour personnel. James Welsh continues a run of superb music for labels like Wolf Music, Losing Suki and Join The Dots with a great rework, right deep, down and luscious. A bending Juno bassline and sweet chords float over the deft drums, sparingly sprinkling the vocal to maximum effect, really nice work from Mr. Welsh here.

Last Magpie comes with the second remix, flipping the Original on its head completely and opting for a heavy breaks laden remix, chopping the vox up and slapping you around the face with its gnarly 909 drums, twisted breaks and sub-bass booms…..
