Uffe delivers a 5 track EP including two remixes that set the standard for a promising career.
His debut EP on Pets Recordings (Catz n Dogs) earlier this year created quite a bit of hype and the track “When The Sun Rose” appeared in various high profile DJ charts and Podcasts.

On a global dance music scene where genre tags seem increasingly irrelevant and everyone seems occupied with evading them by chasing ‘eclectisism’, the sound of Amsterdam-based up-and-coming producer Uffe Christensen AKA Uffe is that rare thing; a listening experience, which it would only be fair to call a breath of fresh air. Using carefully considered musical elements and song, the native Dane has concocted a singular brew of electronic music that baffles the mind and moves the rear. It’s sample-based, house- and techno-inspired pop music, music that challenges you to participate and get involved and music that’s invigoratingly breathless, quietly intense and very uniquely Uffe.

The opening track “Something Wrong” is a track fuelled by Rhodes melody and a full-on funky bass line. O.P.T delivers a tough as nails remix resembling early Underworld with a splash of New Jersey house circa 1992.
”Turbulence” is an odd little treat featuring a deaf male choir and vocals by Uffe himself. Daniel Brandt of Brandt Brauer Frick and Emil Margetli Nyholm of Muff Deep delivers a 99 BPM dub odyssey with live drums, piano and complimentary synth fuzz. Finally, the last track “Fist Fight” showcases Uffe’s all-round talent and cements his name as one to watch in 2013
