Having first burst into the public consciousness in 2011 with a slew of anthemic UK funky tracks, Champion has been championed by figureheads like Four Tet and has released music on labels as diverse as Hyperdub, OWSLA, and Butterz. Despite being just 27 years old, he's been DJing and playing out since 2003 and, as a direct result of that exposure, his music is heavily influenced by the lineage of the Jamaican sound system culture in London. Elements of dub and reggae blend with dance-hall drum patterns, garage skip, and a particularly grime-influenced independent outlook all throughout Champion's discography. It's that kind of bass-heavy variety and his open-mindedness that has come to define both the output of his own label, Formula Records, and his latest album, Snapshot, which features collaborations with artists as diverse as Flava D, Royal-T, Jammz, and Four Tet. Also features Dread MC, Shantie, Slick Don, BKAT, Miss Fire, and Jammz.
