Classic Roots brings the sexy heartbeat of the boreal north to life with his unique brand of Electronica and
pow wow techno. The Thunder Bay native is an award-winning producer and DJ who is impacting the
music community with his fresh sound and meaningful collaborations with diverse artists.

Drawing inspiration from his life and culture, Classic Roots established his original sound by integrating
First Nations songs with Electronica music. He navigates the unique sound of techno/house music while
dancing to the beat of traditional Anishinaabe sounds, establishing a sense of cultural freedom that
echoes throughout the electronic music scene. With inspirations such as Gina Turner, Daft Punk and
“Justice” French Producer, Classic Roots has been able to develop his sound, which he has perfected
through the use of a drum machine and the music software Reason 9.

This program is in partnership with Red Music Rising and Canada’s Music Incubator.
