Dunmore Park is the culmination of a life spent absorbing and collecting music.  Launched by Andrew Williams (co-founder of the Night Vision Music collective, the Night Vision Music Academy, and the Alberta Electronic Music Conference) in June of 2016, Dunmore Park's productions are nostalgic collages of sound, taking old world melodies and mingling them with newer sensibilities. He describes his sound as a mixture of house and downtempo, with songs created with both home listening and dancefloors in mind.

While the project still in its infancy, Dunmore Park’s music has already received support from across the globe. His music has been signed by a myriad of international labels such as Supremus (UK), Touch of Class (USA), Copycow (Germany/India), TTOMH (USA), Substation (CAN), and he has releases on the way on Edmonton-based Night Vision Music and Future Roots. His songs have received DJ support from artists like Maya Jane Coles, Pezzner, Horse Meat Disco, Corey Baker, Afftk, Soul Clap, KMLN, Hernan Cattaneo, Riva Starr, DJ T, ZDS, Nick Monaco, Luis Leon, Jerry Bouthier, Pillow Talk, and more. 

As a performer, Dunmore Park is a skilled DJ with over a decade of experience behind him and a fondness for the eclectic. He frequently incorporates live elements into his DJ sets, either through live vocals or live electronics. Through his collaboration with video artist Owen Brierley, he also performs occasionally with customized visuals that provide a video journey to accompany his music.

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 widereaching 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. His debut EP “Quit This City” is comprised of 6 new original songs and was released on Mad Decent in October 2015 to critical acclaim. Stereogum called the tracks “internet-age genre melds that bounce and float like cartoon party music." With this body of work, Grandtheft has further defined his sound and made his mark as an artist. The first single and title track features Canadian compatriot and Arts & Crafts indie pop darling Lowell. With a heavy schedule of touring that includes festivals such as Coachella, Ultra, Bestival, TomorrowWorld, HARD Fest, EDC and Mad Decent Block Party among others, Grandtheft’s following has increased astronomically in the past two years and shows no signs of slowing down.
