The Canadian producer took home the prestigious award tonight for his debut album, 99.9%.
The Polaris Music Prize is the Canadian equivalent of the Mercury Prize (which was awarded to Skepta last week), recognizing the best album by a Canadian artist each year. As Pitchfork reports, the honour also comes with a $50,000 cheque.
The Montreal artist, real name Louis Celestin, won for his debut album, 99.9%, released this past spring on XL. He beat out Grimes, Jessy Lanza, Carly Rae Jepsen and Black Mountain, among others. It's a rare win for an electronic music artist, although Caribou won in 2008 for Andorra.
