Playlist of the Week: Cristoph

Christoph Beatportal Playlist
May 8, 2024
Ahead of his performance at Seismic Spring Lite, Newcastle native and Chicago resident Cristoph shares some of his top tracks from recent sets for a deeper insight into his musical meanderings for Beatport’s Playlist of the Week.

Recently awarded Beatport’s 2023’s Number 1 Progressive House selling artist, Cristoph seemingly is never sitting still long enough to write music, let alone release it at a rapid rate. Playing over 100 sets in 2023, with that momentum continuing deep into 2024, Cristoph has taken a few minutes to create this playlist for a little glimpse into his recent global setlist.

“My longer and Open to Close sets take the party through many different sounds and beats, creating what I hope is a memorable dance floor journey.”

- Cris


Cristoph will join an elite group of talent—including Armin van Buuren, MEDUZA, James Hype, Brina Knauss, Colyn, and more—to perform at the 2024 edition of Seismic Spring Lite, which will take place between May 10 and 11 in Austin, Texas.

Check out Cristoph's Playlist of the Week on Beatport
Losless - Layer By Layer [HABITAT Records]
I’ve been a big fan of Mind Against and their label HABITAT for a while now and I’m loving this track from their most recent Metaflora series. Losless is someone who has come onto my radar recently and as always puts his own spin on the techno spectrum.
Remcord - Entourage Effect [HABITAT Records]
Another record coming from HABITAT, the French producer/DJ Remcord delivers an amazing record that really helps create those intense moments on the dance floor. I love playing this in my Open To Close sets.
Tim Engelhardt, Sean Dorn - So Good [Siamese]
A great track I play around those peak time hours always gets a great reaction from the dance floor. The vocal in the break creates one of those ‘moments’ the crowds seem to love.
Cristoph - Tha Music [Consequence Of Sound]
I released this last year, and it still seems to get a lot of support from DJs across all different genres. It just really rolls on, and that relentless feel always gets the crowd moving.
Cristoph, Artche - Illusions [Pryda Presents]
This is an older track I did featuring the amazing Artche on vocals. Still, it's one of those tracks I turn to when you want the crowd to have a little singalong. Artche really did deliver here!
Michael Kruck - Dark Circles (Michael Kruck Stijve Tepel Edit) [MONOTON audio]
A wicked deep, dark, bass techno track for the German on his own MONOTON audio imprint. I love playing this track when I start getting a little tougher.
Estiva - Fine Day [Colorize]
I’m loving this one from the Dutch DJ at the moment. Sampling Opus III ‘It’s a Fine Day’ he’s created something that seems to tie the progressive, melodic techno and trance worlds together beautifully.
Dhillon - Layerleaf [Drumcode]
I’m a huge fan of Jeremy Olander and this is the same for his more Techno-led alias, Dhillon. Again, here we have a track I play when I take things a little tougher.
ADZ, Cristoph - Solpaz [Factory 93 Records]
With me playing more extended and Open To Close sets, I wanted to venture into making my own heavier records for when I lean more into the techno world. This always gets a great reception when I play it out.
Kolsch - Cassiopeia (feat. Gregor Schwellenbach) [Kompakt Extra]
Kolsch is another artist I’m a massive fan of and this record is such an emotional track. Whenever this is played, it creates one of those ‘moments’ in your set where you look back at when the night is over and realize how lucky you are to be able to play music around the world.
