Toronto-based producer Grandtheft and R&B vocalist also known as one half of Party Pupils, MAX, are releasing their eclectic co-written single “Square One” with Lowly Palace. Grandtheft’s debut on Trap Nation’s Lowly Palace comes at an industry-altering period, as the label continues efforts to disrupt traditional labels by showcasing and supporting both global and underground talent. Adhering to the dynamic style that made him a household name, Grandtheft’s newest single endeavors to solidify his legacy in the rapidly evolving music scene.
The artist said, “Square One is at once about disappointment and coming to terms with an ending, but also restarting with strength and self-awareness. It’s masculine but compassionate. There is a fall/winter mood to it – the bittersweet quality of the song mirrors wanting to keep yourself warm in the face of increasingly cold weather. I find it reassuring because everyone feels like that when they have to through a tough or new experience – and we had a lot of fun writing it.”
“Square One” is a genre-blending, eclectic track that pushes boundaries and raises standards. Contemporary music is constantly being innovated, and Grandtheft is up to the challenge. “Square One” is intimate yet bold, radiating and repeating with a charming bottom layer beat.
With the widespread success of “Easy Go,” Grandtheft is no stranger to the big leagues. You might recognize this Toronto DJ for his original song “Keep it 100” with Keys N Krates, which won the Best EDM Dance Video MMVA and was featured in the ‘Minions’ movie trailer.
MAX is a Manhattan producer who has forged his own genre with a fusion of pop, soulful acoustic, and hip-hop. His newest single “Lights Down Low” off his album “Hell’s Kitchen Angel” has over 95 million streams on Spotify and recently debuted on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
The “Square One” World Tour will begin on January 19th in Ontario.
