KOCH Taps Big Oomp to Head New Southern Division
Independent powerhouse KOCH Records has recently revealed that they are extending their partnership with Atlanta’s Big Oomp Records, the label run by veteran DJ Big Oomp that found success over the last year with Unk’s Beat’n Down Yo Block album, which featured the massively popular singles “Walk It Out” and “2-Step.” The label also has plans to release projects from the rest of their roster, including Baby D and Big Korey.
Additionally, KOCH announced that they are tapping Oomp to head their newly formed KOCH South Urban imprint, under which he will provide production services for other artists on the label. “This is a watershed moment for our company and we are thrilled to enter into this expanded relationship with Big Oomp,” KOCH Records President Bob Frank says. “We are very fortunate to have such a talented entrepreneur as our partner and are looking forward to blowing this up over the next few years.”
Big Oomp also added, “I’m very happy with what KOCH and I have come up with, and to head KOCH South. It’s an honor to commit my energy into doing the best I can do to make sure we turn in hits. KOCH is building its house and I’m glad to be a part of it. I’ve had a successful first year with KOCH and think that they deserve to have me for a couple more years.”
