Melding exotically frenetic rhythms with pulsating drops and a healthy dose of bass, Bermuda native Choppa Dunks unleashes his trap-infused New Noise debut, “Fight.”
Beginning his career as a drummer in a reggae band, Choppa Dunks moved to the U.S. to hone his craft at Boston’s Berklee College of Music, where he was soon introduced to his first DAW. In only two years, Choppa Dunks’ passion for production eclipsed his love of drumming, and he decided to transition his career to become a full-time producer, rooting his sound in his early dancehall and reggae influences. Since then, Choppa Dunks’ career has taken off with officially commissioned remixes for Diplo, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike & Martin Garrix, and Die Antwoord that was released on Mad Decent, Spinnin’ Records, and Downtown, respectively. Additionally, he was hand-picked to rework Shop Boyz’s hit “Party Like A Rockstar,” and his original spin earned 1.8M+ Spotify streams and a premiere on Run The Trap. Choppa Dunks has also released original music via Republic’s Casablanca division and Buygore, the latter who put out his first major single “Get Sore,” which reached the top 10 on Beatport’s Hip-Hop charts. With support from Major Lazer, Skrillex, Borgore, and more, it’s only a matter of time before Choppa Dunks takes over the electronic music world for good.
New Noise is Dim Mak’s new music discovery imprint that highlights cutting-edge sounds from burgeoning artists across the genre spectrum. New Noise originally got its start as a compilation series highlighting fresh faces handpicked by Steve Aoki and the Dim Mak crew. Since then, the platform has evolved into a bi-weekly, free-download model based on singles. New Noise’s current incarnation is also copyright free, which allows the budding community of Twitch gamers and amateur YouTube creators to use New Noise music in their videos and live streams without the need to purchase or pay fees, all in exchange for linking back to the artists and their music.
