At The 3000 Network, we are always looking to remain as current as possible, be that exploring the newest artists emerging onto the bass circuit, or taking a look at what the more established labels are working on at the time. Today we are here to look at the latter as we witness a brand new drop from the legendary Champion Records, a project that may go under the radar for some, but who have been responsible for some of the most popular dance music tracks of all time.
When we talk about classics, there aren’t many that at a higher calibre than Robin S‘s ‘Show Me Love‘, an anthem that has stood the test of time and remains one of the most popular dance records to play to this date. The label have also held a long standing association with a number of high profile producers and DJs, the likes of Todd Terry, Junior Vasquez, Stonebridge and Kerri Chandler, to name a few.
We are lucky enough to have been brought on in official premiere duty for their next project here at 3000, and we couldn’t be more excited to get stuck into the thick of it. We know the label is primarily famed as a house platform, which is why the brand new drop from messers Ryuken & Laughta.
The pair combine in perfect fashion, with Ryuken providing a selection of seriously well produced drum riffs, coupled with subtle horn stabs, glittering ride cymbals. Beneath this pleasing arrangement of drums and percussion we tune into a super catchy moog-style bass melody, which weaves it’s way through the mix loud and clear.
This is then adorned with style by Laughta who provides skippy flows and perfect rave ready singalong lyricism, full of unique twists and turns. Overall, the composition is full of complements between different pieces of the instrumentation, with each individual element being there for a specific reason and adding to the overall sound, rather than cluttering the place up.
This is most certainly one we are expecting to hear across the biggest radio stations and festival stages throughout the summer, showcasing just how on the ball the team at Champion Records still are after all these years.
