Christ - Bike

Artist: Christ

Album: Bike

Christ. is a Scottish solo electronic music artist. His music has been notable due to the melancholic nature of his sound and lush soundscapes he uses in them. There is no religious meaning in his name; rather, it is an abbreviation of his real name, Christopher Horne, which also explains the period which is an official part of his handle. Christ. s music is often likened to that of fellow Scottish electronic group Boards of Canada In fact, Horne was an early participant in the nebulous Hexagon Sun collective from which BoC emerged and was a collaborator with the group until approximately 1995, appearing on the Twoism album reissued by Warp in 2002 Horne's departure was amicable and he thanks the duo on his Pylonesque EP issued on the Benbecula Records label in 2001. He followed this release with a full length album Metamorphic Reproduction Miracle on the same label which was very well received within the genre. He has toured the UK Europe and Japan and performed a live session for John Peel at Maida Vale studios in London on 17th December 2003. This session became notable amongst Peel's fans as being the only known occasion upon which the legendary DJ requested an encore. Christ. will release his 4th full length album, his 2nd for Benbecula, on 22nd January 2007 (having been delayed from November 2006 due to manufacture and marketing issues).
