Christian Bloch

Filed under: Artists — The Ripped @ May 29th, 2010

Prior to his 2002 move to Detroit, Christian Bloch ranked among the Denmark elite with his soulful yet minimalist hard techno. Born and raised in northern Denmark, his DJ skills are legendary in the history of techno parties in Aalborg. Bloch has played the world-renowned Tresor club in Berlin and also the 2001 Roskilde Festival, alongside talents including Super_Collider, Plaid and Slam. Bloch’s passion infiltrates his widespread talents, ranging from Berlin dub, classic Detroit style, gritty and textured German beats to an English minimalism like no other.

Bloch has released on Deep Night Essentials (Andy Vaz – sub-label of the acclaimed Background Records), LL Records (Pacou), and Tresor. Other notable releases include Funque Droppings (Bloch’s own label), Canada’s Restructured Records and several smaller labels. Producers such as Pacou, Damon Wild and Sean Deason have remixed Bloch’s techno and his sounds made it onto Ricardo Villalobos’ “Love Family Trax” mix cd.
