Considered one of Canada’s most accomplished electronic producers, Van Did’s appreciation for sound design, electro‐acoustics, & new techniques for signal processing is evident as he weaves texture & dimension into every aspect of his creations.
With consistent releases on prestigious labels around the world, including Manual Music, Herzblut, & Hernan Cattaneo’s Sudbeat, he decided to start his own label in 2011 called Grrreat Recordings.
Besides founding 8day Collective and his own label, he mixes melodic bits and pieces into a soothing Van Did signature – a loopy landscape of groovy beats, little details and driving energy.
Over the last 5 years, Van Did has been playing around Canada, France, Germany, Wales, Belgium, Japan, Italy, Uk and Mexico performing on well known festivals across the globe alongside artists such as Agoria, Carl Craig, Kevin Saunderson, Nina Kraviz, N’To, Rone and Stephan Bodzin. His tracks are played and supported by Hernan Cattaneo, Moonbeam, Deepfunk and Applescal to name a few.
He has also performed in numerous local and renowned venues such as Société des Arts Technologiques (S.A.T.), Club Soda, Salon Daomé, Newspeak, Théâtre Corona, Igloofest, Piknic Electronik Montreal, and Mutek Montreal.
