Establishing a 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. The music he produces is varied beyond categorization, except to say, it seems to move people. Grandtheft's productions have garnered heavy support from the likes of Diplo, Major Lazer, A-Trak, Nadastrom, Jazzy Jeff, Flosstradamus, Skream, Digitalism, Partysquad, Zeds Dead, Borgore and BBC debuts from Annie Mac, Mista Jam and Kissy Sellout. Touring 150+ dates per year, his remixes and live sets have led to being booked to support acts from U2 to Arcade Fire to Avicii, and being hand-picked by celebs such as Seth Rogan and Paris Hilton to supply the soundtrack for their events. New Years Eve 2012, Grandtheft performed live-to-air on national TV as the sole DJ for the MuchMusic throwback "Electric Circus". Later in the year, Grandtheft collaborated with Diplo to remix Calvin Harris and Florence Welch's hit "Sweet Nothing". Released on Ultra/Fly Eye, the remix became a worldwide smash in and of itself, garnering 3 Million+ plays on soundcloud and climbing to the Top 10 on the iTunes Dance Charts in many countries. This has led to more club hits with his 'Tuna Melt' remix for A-Trak/Tommy Trash (Fools Gold) and a remix of Machel Montano's soca anthem 'The Fog' with Major Lazer.
GT was also known as one half of the Team Canada DJs duo and founder of The Eh! Team. Coming up under the late DJ AM's wing, Team Canada's reign included playing clubs across the US and performing at most major Canadian events nationwide, including Canada Day on Parliament HIll (crowd of 100 000+) and being selected as the Official DJs to The 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver/Whistler.
Grandtheft has released originals on Spinnin, T&A, Top Billin and Plant. He's also delivered some big remixes to labels like Fool's Gold, Ultra, Universal, Interscope, Dim Mak and OM - including official hit reworks for Calvin Harris, Machel Montano, Steve Aoki and Drake. His Keys N Krates 'Treat Me Right' remix for Dim Mak hit #1 Electronic on Beatport and many of his tunes have attained the #1 spot on Hype Machine's blog charts. These remixes and his familiar white label dubs are heard in clubs around the world on a nightly basis.
