The Formula Records boss is releasing his first LP next month
It goes without saying – Champion is a legend. Releasing through his label has contributed to the success of a host of big names (most notably Flava D), he’s been producing bangers across the UK Bass spectrum for years and is also apparently one of the nicest guys in the scene, regularly giving advice from both his artist page and in groups such as Lengoland.
Taking it back to the start of the year, Champion released a huge folder of music for free, full of productions spanning the last 6 years, in order to ‘usher in new music for 2017’. Apparently, that ‘new music’ is ready.
Champion’s debut album ‘Snapshot’ is due to be released on 3rd November and judging by the tracklist on his Bandcamp, it’s going to be ridiculously huge. Featuring collaborations with Flava D, Royal T, Four Tet and current anthem ‘Running It Red’ featuring MC Shantie, it’s set to be one of the biggest releases of 2017.
If that wasn’t exciting enough, pre-ordering ‘Snapshot’ entitles you to two tracks immediately (the aforementioned ‘Running It Red’ and ‘Drill’). You can pre-order here and stream both of available tracks below.
Talking of Champion collaborations, he’s also recently been in the studio with Skepsis, working on a track we can’t wait to get our hands on:
