Huffington Post - over 3 years
Mad Decent Block Party, EDM impresario Diplo's now-annual traveling dance circus, kicked off in Calgary last Friday and will be criss-crossing the continent for much of the remaining summer.
To celebrate the upcoming July 26 Toronto date at Fort York, Mad Decent's local DJ/producer Grandtheft has put together a field-filling mix that ranges from crate-dug club-bangers to Kanye and Missy remixes to his own banging productions.
"I wanted to put together an hour of mostly brand-new music that I love right now, high energy stuff that reps the vibe of the Mad Decent Block Party," Grandtheft tells HuffPost Canada Music. " But, as always with me, I threw in all different kinds of club music. Also haaaddd to throw in the Africanism classic 'Block Party.' I've never played a block party without playing that!
The Toronto Mad Decent Block Party features Major Lazer, Zeds Dead, RiFF RAFF, Grandtheft, A Tribe Called Red, Thugli, DJ El Dusty and will be hosted by The Iron Sheik.
