Cristoph, a DJ and producer from Newcastle, has remixed the Motorcycle trance classic ‘As The Rush Comes,’ which is out on Positiva. Stream and download here.

The Cristoph remix of ‘As The Rush Comes‘ accentuates the rich melodies and euphoric breakdowns of the original while losing none of its dancefloor prowess, channeling the progressing house energy with which he has become synonymous.

As The Rush Comes,’ a collaboration between Gabriel & Dresden of San Francisco and vocalist JES, was Motorcycle’s biggest hit, peaking at #11 in the UK ‘Top 20’ and topping the Billboard ‘Dance/Mix Show Airplay’ chart in 2003. The Christoph remix comes 18 years after the original, which was also released on Positiva, and coincides with the label’s rebranding, which includes a new take on the iconic Positiva logo.

When Positiva came to us with the idea of having Cristoph do a remix of As The Rush Comes, we got very excited. Cristoph has proven consistency for making and releasing great remixes and unforgettable tracks. The way he respects the song in each remix he’s done previously informed us that this was going to be something special, and he does not disappoint. – Gabriel & Dresden

I’m so honoured that As The Rush Comes has continued to connect with music fans and producers since its original release. Cristoph’s sublime new remix has re-invented the song again, unearthing a whole new emotion and energy in it. It sounds so fresh it could have been recorded yesterday. It’s a tribute to our dance community’s strength to have new remixes of songs that touched so many of us. I hope it continues to inspire us all to make more new music. – JES


When in the studio I have always been intrigued by making edits of old classics and was actually contemplating doing a version of ‘As The Rush Comes’ when I was asked to remix it. I decided to focus on the original bassline and build the idea around that, adding my own emotion to the breakdown like I try to do on certain records. – Cristoph

Cristoph has released music on some of the most prestigious labels in the progressive house scene, including Bedrock, Last Night On Earth, Truesoul, Knee Deep in Sound, Yoshi Toshi, and Selador. More recently, he collaborated with Franky Wah to release ‘World You See’ on the legendary Pryda Presents label, a single that has nearly 4 million Spotify streams.

The Cristoph remix of ‘As The Rush Comes’ marks the start of an exciting new chapter in Positiva’s story, heralding a new creative era for the label.
