Just heard this on Rinse FM and jesus, it is MASSIVE. Made by a 19 year old from Hackney and packed with mad energy, this is a mix of swift leaping strings and the sweetest, deepest analogue bass pulses Ive heard for time, all with the Addictive Bad Girl vocal smashed over the top. Its got the energy of the best 92 hardcore, and feels like an underground classic from the first note. Theres a joy and an urgency to Champions sound that doesnt rely on excessive production flourishes but breathes through stepping melody and bassbin harassing beats. Theres not much more to say, just listen to it. I love the track, and on the basis of this and the few other tunes hes had out over the last year, 2010 will see big things for this shining new producer.
