Crosstown Rebels

Glimpse Mix

In a career that has spanned only seven years, Christopher Spero (aka Glimpse) has established himself as one of the most versatile, imaginative, and talented producers that the UK has to offer today. From the early days of his hugely successful and uncompromising techno with Black Series on Glimpse Recordings (his own label distributed by Kompakt), through to the groove-laden tech house of Drifting on Planet E . Later, commited to fully pursuing the deep and organic take on house via his Crosstown Rebels singles and album, he has gained the respect of his peers and culminated two successive nominations in DJ Magazine’s prestigious Best British Producer category.

His brilliant live sets have gained him support from a broad range of artists including Carl Craig, Levon Vincent, Richie Hawtin, DJ Koze, Scuba, Ricardo Villalobos, Sven Vath, and Jackmaster. His popular series, Glimpse’s Black is in the bags of many from the likes of Jeff Mills, Troy Pierce, Konrad Black, Laurent Garnier, Luciano, Ricardo Villalobos, Marco Carola, Loco Dice, Jay Haze, Francis K, Richie Hawtin, Magda, Carl Craig, Mike Shannon, and Adam Beyer. His tracks have also appeared on various compilations, including Richie Hawtin’s mix for Minus. If his work can marry to all of these names in just seven years, his future is more than promising.
