Champion and his G-Strings returns to Vancouver after a sold out 2007 Vancouver jazz fest performance at the Commodore Ballroom.

Accomplished composer and multi-instrumentalist, guitar god, producer and deeply rooted DJ within the Montreal electronic music scene, Maxime Morin, also known as Champion, is a prestigious and talented musician.

Music lover since early childhood, he started playing at the tender age of five, then got closer and closer to what became his partner for life: an electric guitar. Throughout his career, he's helped form rock and punk bands, before discovering his new passion: electronic music. After 10 committed and productive years of performing and producing (under his alias Mad Max and Le Max), the next natural step was to combine his two main obsessions and release his most important project so far: Chill'em All.

Chill'em All bites, and hard. With its sharp guitars, its sensual grooves and cleverly mixed rhythms, it sparks the senses out of you. True orchestra man, Champion has created a musical monument, which sets itself aside from the rest with its combination of exquisite guitar melodies and techno beats. Along with being an accessible album for everyone's palate, Chill'em All provides a unique live experience on stage, whether it's Champion en solo, with laptop, loops and guitar or the extended version, where he becomes the conductor, accompanied by four guitarists, one bass player and a lead singer, leading his creations sky high.

Champion's talent is undeniable. After playing at the 2004 Academy Awards for Les Triplettes de Belleville, at Les Francofolies de Montréal (2004), at the Montreal Jazz Festival (2004-2005), in France, Germany, Finland, Mexico and in Canada, his album Chill'em All was successfully welcomed, and received the album of the year award in the electronic-techno music category at the 2005 Autre Gala de l'ADISQ, proving that the public is ready for his ingenious corrosive/emotive fusion.
