Champion Readies 'The Rainforest' EP
- Words: Atticus Morris
Roska's Kicks and Snares imprint has been busy in 2011, and the releases keep on coming, the next being The Rainforest EP (pictured above) from swiftly rising UK producer Champion. The three-track EP, which is slated to drop on December 5, is characterized by sturdy rhythms and trademark UK funky percussion that at times drifts into garage territory. Full of tribal drums, classic dancehall samples, rainforest ambiance, and chest-rattling basslines, The Rainforest is a steamy excursion through upfront UK sounds. The complete tracklist and an audio preview of the EP are below.
