Champion Rocka - “Riot Sound”
The R.O.A.R. And Chooky's world's first collided in summer 2012, when Chooky turned in a Moombah-core remix of “Emotion32” for The R.O.A.R.'s upcoming EP. That track proved to be the catalyst for a collaboration that would move beyond just remixing. “Emotion32” was not only featured in a movie (“RELATIVE” in the opening scene), and on various blogs and websites(Do Androids Dance, Moomba+, All Things Moombahton, Fingers On Blast) it has also been a mainstay on Moombahton.net's ALL TIME TOP 10 with over 60K plays in only 3 months. The use of ORIGINAL VOCALS and ROCK ELEMENTS were heralded as a much needed and important part of the development of Moombahton and would lay the blueprint for CHAMPION ROCKA.
Moombahton itself still in it's infancy at just 3 years old, the Latin-tinged- 108 BPM genre founded by Dave Nada, appeared to have hit a holding pattern. Many of the genres BIGGEST Producers and Champions had slowly weened themselves off Moombahton and started dabling in the exploding Trap/Twerk/Zouk/ and Hard Style scenes. With cries of “Moombahton is Dead” ringing from Message Boards, and Blog sites everywhere Chooky and The R.O.A.R. Decided to re-commit themsleves to the genre that had brought their musical paths together.
The only criteria for Champion Rocka then was to do something in the 108-112 BPM range that hadn't been done before. Wether it was to use different rhythmic patterns or sounds, or to cross-pollinate Moombahton with genres it hadn't readily mixed with initially, PUSHING THE ENVELOPE of where it could go was Paramount. “Riot Sound” is the first ORIGINAL track from the forth coming THE RIOT SOUND EP, and it sounds the alarm right from the start. With a BLARING first drop that will melt your speakers, to the screaming Rage Against The Machine-ish yells of “HIT EM WITH THE RIOT SOUND” the track will get people's attention. With blessings already in from Moombahtons' progenitors and original innovators CHAMPION ROCKA is ready to take this sound as far as it can go.
