Champion Sound: Sampler 1 / Various
This groundbreaking Australian release puts the finest emerging Australian talent, including Dee Kay, Ebony Rose and Sunny Dread alongside reggae greats such as Junior Murvin, Kaya and Daddy Freddy. Produced by Champion Sound's in-house team alongside Dubwise Productions' Chris jay, the artist line-up is truly global, spanning Jamaica, the UK, Solomon Islands, South Africa and Australia. Champion Sound is a youth engagement and community development organisation based around urban music, the creative industries and Jamaican sound system culture. We run a variety of programs around Australia geared towards providing local opportunities through the creative industries. Our programs often result in the recording of musical works, and this CD is the first in the Champion Sound Sampler series where we showcase some of the outcomes. We have also sourced additional tracks through our partnerships with other labels, including UK reggae label Dubwise Productions.
