Remember Remember The 5th of December… cos Champion’s War Dance will drop! That’s how the saying goes yeah? Hmm, well it probably will do soon. I’ve been following the latest offering from Champion after first hearing it on Benji B’s Radio 1 show a month or so ago. It makes me happy that it’s now got a release date.
Bleeping, laser beaming and shuffling into the descending bass hook, Champion’s War Dance is a big time roller. Released on the increasingly prolific Roska’s Kicks & Snares (‘RKS’) label as part of the Rainforest EP, the track features the almost trademark, stuttering DJ name vocal layered over the top. It works for Roska, and it works for me on this one too.
The EP also features modern tribal offering; Rainforest, complete with atmospheric monkey chorus and native chants. Finishing off the three track release is Selecta, featuring garage shouts and rewinds hot from 2000, over a fresh and crisp Champion 2011 beat.
