Based in Brazil for many years, before moving to Europe, it was there in Sao Paulo where Christian became friends with techno king Victor Ruiz.

Now, the duo have joined forces to collaborate for a special project on Tronic. Victor is no stranger to the label, after remixing a track from Christian’s album in 2016 and featuring on a compilation back in 2013, while the label boss himself is also coming off a strong year, especially after the successful release of his collaboration “Neon Jungle” with Harry Romero in July.

Here, ‘The Runner’ has a pummelling low end growl to it. A slow burner of a track which pushes deeper into the depths of subtle synth work. It releases into a recognisable and sizeable stab pattern, ready to set alight dancefloors.

“The Runner” is available 18 September on Tronic Music PRE ORDER
