Christian made his debut as GANGA in 2005, releasing I Dream About Trees on influential danish label Music For Dreams, known for an eclectic roster of artists (including Aura, Kenneth Bager, Bliss, Banzai Republic, Hess Is More, Djosos Krost and Lulu Rouge) and compilation series including Luftkastellet and Dub Pastry.Read More...
In 2007, he launched his own Flinc Music label and in the years to follow released four beautiful albums: Don’t Wake Me Up (2007), More Light Please (2009), Gaia (2010) and now Forget Gravity(2011)
Increasingly in-demand as a DJ, composer, producer and live performer, Gangas genre-defying downtempo DJ sets have brought him as far as Buddha Bar in Dubai, Guru Bar and Aqua Bar in Cypres as well as several Ibizan hotspots including the legendary Café Del Mar and several gigs in Tokyo.
As a composer and live performer, GANGA has collaborated with Ingrid Chavez, Vanessa Daou, Hanne Boel, Peter Peter and appeared several times at Roskilde in Denmark – a highlight on anyone international festival calendar, providing live, original soundtracks for – amongst others - Fritz Lang’s silent sci-fi classic Metropolis and Sergei Eisenstein’s Battleship Potemkin. The new music for Potemkin was composed in collaboration with Peter Peter (ex. Sort Sol) and was released on DVD.
Gangas seventh album “Wondrous Machine” is out on the German label "Wormland White" and still has that blend of ethnic flavours, dubby bass grooves, balearic guitars, evocative vocals, asian infused strings and crispy electronica - that over the years has become Gangas trademark.
Since the debut on Music For Dreams in 2004, Gangas chilled mark on the global map of electronic downtempo and midtempo has continued to grow, and today Gangas tracks are featured on more than 200 compilation CDs and DVDs worldwide.
The track “Carry you home” - from the latest album - co-written with Nikolaj Grandjean, was picked by DJ Ravin for Buddha Bar 16, and "The Wind" also from "Wondrous Machine" is already compiled for many downtempo compilations around the globe including Buddha Bar 15.
As is normal for a Ganga album, “Wondrous Machine” features brilliant vocal and musical perfromances from far corners of the world.
Anwar Ahmed Khan and his brother Naushad Hussain Khan, both from India, performs on “The Wind” together with old time Ganga collaborator Helle Chirholm, and Annemarie Zimakoff performs on a very delicate and evocative cinematic slowburner called “Living on the Moon..
In generel the album is very vocally oriented, and a very chilled experience with focus on well produced beats, asian infused vocals, balearic guitars and dubby bass sounds.
Lean back and enjoy the blissfull journey.
Gangas touring brings him to the far corners of this world to perform his music, either live or with his eclectic DJ set or a combination of both.
