Octo Champ releases his second EP of 2017, following up on “Not Quite Here Yet”, which received major exposure from Thump and DJ Mag. 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. Taking inspiration from the more exotic corners of the musical spectrum the EP leads with the upbeat Make Heaven and its conga rhythms, vocal hooks and electronic patterns. CMI is slower and moves further into the groove whilst Lacuna is the EP's funkiest cut, featuring a killer bass hook, percussion, guitar chops, claps and more vocals to carry it along. Closing with a second four to the floor track, Diametric leads with an elastic, acoustic bassline, synth pads and you've guessed it: more vocal hooks.

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 Here Yet EP.
