Oscar Oomens aka CHAMPION has been surrounded by music from a very early age. Having grown up in a Dutch household where his parents and sisters mastered orchestral instruments, and his brother having a passion for hip-hop it became apparent that a life dedicated to music was the way for him! Since then the 23-year-old producer has had a taste for many styles of EDM including drum & bass, this being where he found his love for music!
Having started producing at the mere age of 17 and being inspired by greats such as GROOVERIDER & PENDULUM, CHAMPION started the D&B group called SUBMATIK which has seen him perform shows across the whole of Europe in 2012/13 for shows like LIQUIDCITY, ANTWERP CITY FLOW plus many more.
Now CHAMPION releases his first eagerly anticipated single on the mighty NEMESIS RECORDINGS entitled SAVE ME which features the beautiful vocal talents of CHARLOTTE HAINING who has been seen to of had a very successful year so far working with the likes of XILENT, FLIWO, RAMESES B and many more just to name a few! Charlotte Haining is definitely another artist to be looked out for in 2014.
Coined by MISTAJAM as the best new producer to look out for CHAMPION sets the pace with this masterpiece of a single! The piano intro takes control of centre stage whilst luscious pads sweep across the room, enhanced by the beautiful harmonics of CHARLOTTE HAINING. You cannot go wrong with this summer slammer right here! Hard-hitting drums & bass come at you hard whilst the melodic bass line takes you into the next dimension! Already being supported by the likes of MISTAJAM, ANDY C, MATRIX & FUTUREBOUND, FABIO and many more this one is going to be a big festival track this year and of many to come!
Flip to the B Side now and we come to PHOENIX, which is CHAMPION doing what he does best yet again. Smooth laid back beats start the track off from the get go, whilst once again the beautiful vocals sang by his girlfriend take control of the song throughout. Warped synths and warm bass take centre stage while the percussion in this number gets that body shaking at any cost!
Already being played by SUBFOCUS, FRICTION, DJ MARKY and many more this is yet another soon to be classic in the vaults!
Be sure not to miss out on this great release from NEMESIS RECORDINGS, the label has been seen to release some outstanding music in the past 10 years and has undeniably brought through so many great producers in the game that are still featured in magazines and on billboards to this day!!
