CHAMPIONSOUND Records

CHAMPIONSOUND was founded in 1992 by Frank Otto, who had previously worked for several years as Director of International Exploitation at the cult label Kickin Records (by Peter Harris fame) in London. The breakbeat scene was boiling in London and techno saw the light of day in Berlin. House, Garage, Gabba and many other styles of music emerged. In the post-reunification period, many new large and small clubs such as Tresor, E-Werk and Fischlabor were founded in Berlin. The perfect biotope to try out new music and offer new styles of music to the dance-mad crowd. To call the whole thing just techno would fall short, because different styles quickly emerged. In England it was the rave and in Germany the techno party. It doesn’t matter. The main thing was to dance, party and have fun.

CHAMPIONSOUND releases mainly house, deep house and electro. But not only, because with J.J.Cooper’s “Hot & Cool Extravaganca” a milestone in the field of R&B-Rap/Acid Jazz/Lounge Music was released. The CD “Farewell” by Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, however, falls completely outside the dance-oriented releases.

Rave on!

“Nobody cares if you can dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are not great because of their technique, but because of their passion.”

Thats not yet the story of CHAMPIONSOUND

Well, that’s not many releases for a label that has been around for 30 years. But all releases are something very special. IGNITION is still a very frequently played track. Not to mention the ELLEN ALLIEN EP, which is certainly one of the dancefloor classics of techo-electro. TR 727 is also an exceptional production by JAY RAY, who created the masterpiece “Get the groove goin” with Ellen Allien and was also producer and songwriter for DIGIVALLEY and THE FUNKY REVEREND. SOYLENT by Pete Pellerito, who later had a huge club hit with Meglio Stasera. Another recommendation is J.J.COOPER with his fabulous album, which virtuously combines trip hop, acid jazz, R&B, rap and downbeat – and never loses a second of its excitement.
