Grandtheft

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 widereaching
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.
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.
