GRANDTHEFT FROM TORONTO (CANADA)
Grandtheft is a Producer/DJ based in Toronto, Canada. Establishing an eclectic, custom club sound by playing largely his own originals and remixes, Grandtheft has slayed clubs worldwide and is respected as one of the best live DJs Canada has to offer. The music he produces is varied beyond categorization, except to say that it seems to move people. Grandtheft's music is spun nightly in club and radio sets worldwide and has garnered wide-reaching support from Pretty Lights to Hardwell, Skrillex to Annie Mac.
In 2014 Grandtheft remixed some of the year's biggest Dance and Top 40 tracks, including Katy Perry's 'This Is How We Do', Dillon Francis's 'When We Were Young', Alesso's 'Heroes', and Calvin Harris's 'Summer' (teaming up again with Diplo after the success of their 2012 remix of Harris's 'Sweet Nothing' featuring Florence Welch). His official remix of the T.I. and Iggy Azalea single 'No Mediocre' was quickly jumped on by Migos and became a club hit.
Grandtheft continued to drop frequent quality releases for the duration of 2015, with acclaimed remixes like Rihanna's 'Bitch Better Have My Money' with Diplo. His original song 'Keep it 100' with Keys N Krates won the Best EDM Dance Video MMVA, and was featured in the 'Minions' movie trailer. 2016 also proved to be a great year as his song 'Easy Go' with Delaney Jane dominated Top 40 US and Top 20 Canada pop radio. Accruing over 26M streams across platforms, it was nominated for electronic video music video of the year at the MMVAs, and peaked at #1 on MuchMusic video countdown.
His debut EP 'Quit This City' is comprised of 6 new original songs and was released on Mad Decent in October 2015 to critical acclaim. Stereogum called the tracks "internet-age genre melds that bounce and float like cartoon party music." With this body of work, Grandtheft has further defined his sound and made his mark as an artist. The first single and title track features Canadian compatriot and Arts & Crafts indie pop darling Lowell.
With a heavy schedule of touring that includes festivals such as Coachella, Ultra, Bestival, TomorrowWorld, HARD Fest, EDC and Mad Decent Block Party among others, Grandtheft's following has increased astronomically in the past two years and shows no signs of slowing down.
