With a friendship of over fifteen years, collaborative projects and a shared passion for distinctive music with a profound sound, DJ Choco [aka G-Dubs] and Junior Rivero [aka DJ Rivero] have teamed up to form the 1200 Warriors.

Drawing strong influences from the streets of Washington Heights in New York City and straight from their ethnic roots, they bring a new era of music. A blend of music, inspired by dance going right through to the opposite end of the spectrum with hip hop and many other forms in between.

For many years Choco has been the chief engineer for the Wu-Tang Clan and RZA. He has also had great success with house hits as "New Day" on 4th Floor Records and 95 South's "Sunday Shouting" b-boy shouting remix on Defected Records. It is this pedigree of experience which Choco draws on for creating some of the dance music’s and the Warriors most characteristic sounds.

Rivero started out as a local DJ, which induced him into editing, remixing and production. Now, having been dragged out to the forefront of performing and producing, the Warriors had their smash release on Defected Records titled "Gangsta House" featuring the legend KRS-ONE, which was licensed to the Jazzy Jeff Compilation and has been re-released on Slaag Traxx,

These two have and continue to make their mark with releases and remixes on respected labels, Aroma Records, Defected Records , Detour Recordings, 4kenzo Recordings, Greenskeepers Music , Flatpack Traxx, Jack The System along with the heavy hitting Magnetic and Oomph Recordings. Their debut album, due out this year, has collaborations with Michelle Weeks, Ky-Mani Marley, DJ Sneak, Keith Robinson and Craig Mitchell. Flawlessly put together and with a high calibre of artists appearing, this album guarantees not to disappoint and is set to receive heavy praise! So, expect the unexpected along with a few of the familiar beats the 1200 sound are becoming trademarked for.

Along with their productions appearing on highly respected labels, the 1200 Warriors have also started their own imprint, 1200 TRAXX. This label already boasts releases hitting dance floors globally, such as “At Last”, “Jazzo” and their most recent “Bonafied” featuring Craig Mitchell.

Admired and appreciated for their strong sound and style, these guys are sure to become more popular as they generate mass appeal for their work.
