“No One” marks a change in direction for Champion, focusing on dusky, elastic electronic instrumentation previously only flirted with on previous releases. In addition to “No One”, the EP includes six remixes from a diverse array of producers, artist
and DJs, including Glitterbang, Crater, USF, SassyBlack, Breakmaster Cylinder and Champion’s new side project Malidont.
Champion was a a founding member of influential Northwest indie rock band Carissa’s Wierd and began writing and recording under the alphabetically-informed alias of S.
