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 productions have garnered heavy support from the likes of Diplo, Calvin Harris, A-Trak, Flosstradamus, Skream, Zeds Dead and BBC debuts from Annie Mac and Mista Jam.
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 picked up by Migos and became a club hit.
Grandtheft continued to drop frequent quality releases for the duration of 2015, with acclaimed remixes like Rhiannas “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. With a heavy schedule of touring that includes festivals such as Ultra, Bestival, Mad Decent Block Party, EDC, and Rhythm N Vines among others, Grandtheft’s following has increased astronomically in the past two years and shows no signs of slowing down.
“Quit This City”, an EP of all original mixes released on Mad Decent is scheduled to debut in October 2015. With it's release Grandtheft is set to move from niche into the mainstream. The first single, the title track, features Canadian compatriot and Arts & Crafts darling Lowell.
