He's bringing LP back.

Hot Since 82 is bringing the dance album back with a new LP series from the house head's label Knee Deep in Sound Records. The first installment comes from Cristoph, a man who's made it his mission to blur the lines between modern house and techno with groove-first beats without sacrificing texture and mood.

Cristoph's album 8-track is a collection of definitive sounds, a thesis statement of the fresh producer's musical vision organized as one might build a DJ set. Opening track “Closer” grabs your attention while easing you into the adventure to come.

“For me, personally taking people on a journey is the fundamental component of underground dance music,” Cristoph says in an email release, “and that's what I set out to do when I was given this project. From the individual tracks to the continuous mix itself, my '8-track' attempts to take the listener on a trip - blending those darker, melodic sounds I have grown to love.”
