ChampionsLeak is a German production duo consisted of CHOUKRI Gustmann and Lukas “LULOU” Loules. Based in LA, the duo have already worked with international artists such as Tinashe, French Montana,Tove Lo or else Fifth Harmony.
Last week, the duo premiered their debut single ‘Fuck The Pain Away’, featuring singer and songwriter Radiiio. The Roc Nation songwriter collaborated with Diddy and Chris Brown in the past and is known for his ‘distinctive 80s influences’.
‘Fuck The Pain Away’, first single released on their joint venture label ZbeatZ, introduces us to their mainstream Hip-Hop sound. The track is a chilled out trap infused EDM song. There is a certain duality to the song; the overall vibe is a bit dark but Radiiio’s soft and delicate vocals harmonically tie the whole thing together.
The Enya sample (‘Boadicea’), slow tempo, lyrics and the distorted use of vocal chops for the backing vocals give the song a sensual aspect. The track is pretty danceable too!
