When it comes to music, a song always stands out when it steps outside the box of what is considered the norm for its respective genre. When it comes to moombahton there are many variations from moombahcore, moombahsoul, deep moombahton, to reggae-influenced and even trap or hip-hop-influenced moombahton. Champion Rocka seriously caught my attention with this insanely high energy moombah track that can be described as moombahpunk or moombahrock. I’m sure others have attempted to mesh rock with moombah, before but this track is done so seamlessly with so much drive that you can’t help but take notice.
Champion Rocka is a duo comprised of The R.O.A.R. and Chooky, and their sole mission is to push the envelope when it comes to moombahton through use of different rhythmic patterns and sounds, or cross-pollinating moombah with various genres. This track “Riot Sound,” which is a part of The Riot Sound EP, is a very clear demonstration of their mission and leaves people eager and wanting to know what’s next. It’s now available exclusively through Moombahton.NET.
