Grandtheft with special guests Nick Bike. Tickets only $8 in Advance.
Grandtheft is a Producer/Songwriter/DJ/VJ currently based in Toronto, Canada. He is also known as one half of the Team Canada DJs duo, co-founder of The Eh! Team, and co-owner of Montreal’s favourite indie dance club Blue Dog Motel.
Establishing an eclectic, custom club sound by playing largely his own originals, remixes and video edits, Grandtheft has slayed clubs worldwide and is respected as one of the best live DJs Canada has to offer. Touring 150+ dates per year, his remixes and live sets have led to being booked to support huge acts such as U2 and Arcade Fire, and being hand-picked by celebs such as Seth Rogan and Paris Hilton to supply the soundtrack for their events. New Years 2012, Grandtheft performed live-to-air on national television as the sole DJ for the Much Music throwback Electric Circus celebration. Coming up under the late DJ AM’s wing, Team Canada’s reign included playing clubs across the US and perform- ing at most major Canadian events nationwide, including Canada Day on Parliament Hill, and being selected as the Official DJs to The 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver/Whistler.
Early 2011, the dark disco feel of Grandtheft’s “Let Me Out ft. Alixe Turner” caught the ear of Stretch Armstrong and was signed to Plant Music and released that spring. It was co-written by Sinjin Hawke and featured stellar remixes by a super-producer lineup of U-Tern, Danny Daze and Eli Escobar. He followed that up with summer club smashes “Gangsta Muzik/Splash” (T&A Records) which rose to #1 Overall Release on Turntable Lab. He’s also delivered some big official remixes to labels such as Univer- sal, Interscope, Dim Mak and OM – including hit reworks for Drake and Steve Aoki. These remixes and his familliar white label dubs are heard in clubs around the world on a nightly basis and have attained the elusive #1 spot on Hype Machine’s blog charts a number of times. Grandtheft’s music has also garnered support from Diplo on his XM Blow Your Head series and some key radio spins including Kissy Sellout (BBC Radio1) and DJ Reflex (Power 106 LA). Stay tuned … lots more exciting stuff in the pipeline for this year!
