Grandtheft is a Producer/Songwriter/DJ currently based in Toronto, Canada. He is also known as one half of the Team Canada DJs duo, founder of The Eh! Team and founder of one of Montreal's favourite dance clubs Blue Dog.
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. His music has garnered heavy support from the likes of Diplo, Major Lazer, A-Trak, Nadastrom, Jazzy Jeff, DJ AM, Digitalism and Craze which has also led to some big spins on BBC Radio 1. 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 2012, Grandtheft performed live-to-air on national TV as the sole DJ for the MuchMusic throwback Electric Circus celebration. 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.
Early 2011, the dark sound of Grandtheft's "Let Me Out ft. Alixe Turner" caught the ear of Stretch Armstrong and he released the record on his Plant Music label that spring. This debut single 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" and "Splash" (T&A Records) which rose to #1 Overall Release on Turntable Lab. He's also delivered some big official remixes to labels like Universal, 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.
With releases on Well Rounded, Embassy, Freshmore, Frite Nite, Basshead Music, and remixes featured on Senseless Recordings, Grizzly, and Trenchant Dubs, Wheez-ie explores uncharted territory while still showing his influences in early Hardcore and Jungle. He has been featured on websites and in magazines such as Xlr8r, Resident Advisor, Dj Mag, Dj Mag Korea, and Mixmag. With forthcoming releases on Embassy, and the premiere of his own imprint Southern Belle Recordings, Wheez-ie will continue to push the boundaries of his music as well as the ears of audiences everywhere.
Griffin BOGL is a little bit of an anomaly. No matter what city you are in he might just be at the same party, right next to you. He states SF as his home base, but I'm pretty sure the BOGL spaceship is from parts unknown. After his sets last year, people were raving, literally! It was even likened to drunken Kung Fu, the way he bobbled around behind the decks seamlessly mixing the strangest tunes for what was to become some of the most diverse sets.
BOGL is a guy that can't be pigeonholed. His sets and production always surprise and his sound is on the constant evolve tip. Don't try and understand this man, just show up with open ears, ready to hear something fresh!
RYURY has a huge arsenal of diverse and hard to find sounds for all occasions. His sets go from here to there and back again. Known for always having the freshest and hottest tunes around he has a very good reputation amongst peoples for always keeping it a level above anyone else. He has shared the stage with a ridiculous amount of artists and knows how to throw down on the turntables like a bo$$
