Octo Champ prepares the release of his second release of 2017, “Southern Uplands”.
This upfront four-track release is a selection of dance floor ready disco and house and sits boldly apart from a lot of other music within these genres. Lacuna is the EP’s funkiest cut, featuring a killer bass hook, percussion, guitar chops, claps and more vocals to carry it along.
Octo Champ is one-half of DJ/promoter duo Rigid Disco, running parties and radio shows across both London and Glasgow and booking rising stars such as Tom Blip, FYI Chris, Hector Plimmer and the Rye Wax crew.
Octo Champ has remixed Soundway‘s Flamingods and CHPLN as well as contributing to the CDR x Dimensions Sounds 2016 project. Most recently, his music was picked up by Let’s Go Swimming who released the “Not Quite There Yet” EP.
