A-trak‘s Tuna Melt EP unloaded a stacked collab package at the end of last year, with the self titled EP single w/ Tommy Trash taking things to festival fathoms. With remixes on deck, our Toronto-based friend and familiar Grandtheft has served up the trap treatment on this big room monster and the product is down right naaaasty. And wait, he’s giving it away for free? DAYUM SON, where’d you find this sandwich.
The multi-talented Toronto-based producer, Grandtheft, edited the Crystal Castles hit, “Not In Love,” with his own distinctive 808 touch. The previously up-beat original has been transformed into a satisfying groovy trap gem that will please those who are hungry for some heavy low-end kicks. Also, I’ve found that with the memorable vocals of the legendary Robert Smith (of The Cure), I can’t seem to stop listening to the track over and over. Enjoy after the jump. Continue Reading
Welcome back to our infamous weekly round-up aka THE DIRT, bundling a collection of grade-A tunage to get you through the week or kick-off your weekend! I’m happy to present our 90th edition this week, featuring a collaborative curation of our very own BONES with the one and only Viceroy of powerhouse music outlet VACAY VITAMINS. I’ve teamed up with the SF-based boy wonder to bring you a spectrum of genres guaranteed to put the bounce in our booty. Shall we begin?
Since the beginning of 2012, the Toronto-based Grandtheft has been sequentially treating its crowd to some cream-of-the-crop edits and remakes of tunes. Ranging from 128 to moombah, the 6-track bundle features DJ-friendly party versions of Duck Sauce, The Martin Brothers, Sinjin Hawke, Grandmaster Melle Mel, Skeet Skeet, and even Justin Bieber.
Ever since the first time I heard Hudson Mohawke’s Cbat in the opening scene of my all-time favorite Workaholics episode I’ve been in absolute love with the song. If someone plays it in the club I’m liable to start behaving like a grade-A wasted sorority girl. With that being said, the original is not exactly DJ friendly. Enter Toronto-based beat scientist Grandtheft. Here’s what he had to say about his take on the original:
“When I was on a Canada-wide tour with Keys N Krates last month, I had a lot of long drives to work on tunes. Here’s a Moombahton edit of one of my favorite jams of 2011… I did more than just speed it up though – I chopped it, fr33ked it and redid drums etc – so I guess it’s more of a bootleg remix. Response has been amazing in the club!”

Long weekend? I know my ears are still ringing after a few nights of open bar and noisy monitors DJing inside of a freakin’ gondola, so this GDD™ exclusive World premiere is exactly what I need right now. Combine the soothing vocals of Brooklyn-based diva Lana Del Rey’s smash hit ‘Video Games’ with Montreal’s Grandtheft‘s knack for turning a song on its head and into a groovy jam and we have lift off. If you remember Grandtheft’s take on The Weeknd’s ‘Rolling Stone’ from a few months back then you’ll be jumping out of your seat to get this one.
