David “Gordo” Strickland, Sound Engineer and Producer, who has worked with Redman, Method Man, Keith Murray, Drake, and Kardinal Offishall in conversation with DJ K-Cut of Main Source whose production credits include Big Pun, Maestro, Queen Latifah, Ice-T, Madonna, Citizen Kane, and many more. Together, these two accomplished artists will explore all aspects of hip hop production from recording to live DJ sets. Their knowledge of the early 90s hip hop scene in Toronto and New York will be interwoven throughout their discussion and live demonstrations.
Following the success of previous intimate Acoustic Conversations, which intertwine conversations and a live performance, the McMichael continues with a series that will provide an in-depth look at the development of the hip hop scene in Toronto. Behind the hype, the videos, and hip hop’s ubiquitous presence are the musical geniuses on stage as well as behind the mixing boards. Producers and Sound Engineers not only make each song precise but work closely with artists to create unique sonic compositions. The conversations will be moderated by Big Tweeze a.k.a Anthony Corsi, Producer and Co-host of Views Before the Six.
Please note: the tickets for all Acoustic Conversations include Gallery Admission that day.
