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 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.

Pavarotti – Daniel Bisbing AKA Pavarotti AKA SMOG’s Secret Weapon came out of the womb as wriggling dubstep royalty. By the age most kids were hyping over their first drop, Pavarotti was a seasoned DJ, handpicked by Smog to preserve the original sound, push it forward, and maintain dubplate culture. A D.C via L.A transplant, Pavi’s been part of the west coast bass scene since it found its way to these sunny climes. Having rocked the stages at SXSW, and WMC, and up and down the West Coast, he’s put his knowledge of dubstep culture to use by taking on A&R duties at SMOG. This kid manages to be the past, present, and future of bass all at once.
