Pop quiz… Name the sound architect for Mercedes-Benz, NHOW Hotels and VisitBerlin? A stretch, we know. Let’s try resident DJ for Berlin’s notorious den of electronic dance inequity, the Kitkat Club? Nada!? Ok, regular soundtracker of fashion designer Guido Maria Kretschmer’s runway shows and remixer of artists as diverse as Giorgio Moroder and Paul van Dyk perhaps? Owner of the respected klang ID sound agency and lecturer in Neuro Marketing & Sound at two of Berlin’s top universities? Alright, (titan-sized hint then!), the man who has, over the last 18 months, been behind a procession of genre-straddling, VANDIT-originating club & chart hits!?
‘Sacred Heart’, ‘Amistad’, ‘R2D2’, ‘Angelic’ – over the last half-year, each release has beaten the drum that bit harder and raised anticipation levels that much higher for Mr. M.O.R.P.H.’s new long-player.

Teasing, to a fair degree, the world of electronic music with his deeply textured productions and reworks, they have been percolating the mixes of more progressively thinking DJs for several years now. From his earliest Bonzai releases like ‘Time In Between’, to his latest outings like ‘Forgotten’ (as well as remixes on the works of Gai Barone, Art of Trance, Moshic and others), his darkly brewed brand of late night absorption has attracted attention from several electronic music quarters
Over the last five months Chris Bekker has been on a mission to musically capture the heterogeneous essence of his hometown. Each diverse single has brought him a stage closer to July 2016 and the release of his debut album. Today sees this singles ‘tour’ arrive at the very heart of the German capital, with the album’s namesake single, ‘Berlinition’.
In a touch under two years, Outburst has forged its way to the centre of trance’s agenda. Through sheer force of will, unrelenting quality & quantity of releases and pure dynamism of sound, it’s done what other label start-ups only dream of. It’s signed breakout singles, established new artists, defined its own sound and - in the process -cornered its own market.
