David Strickland is a Toronto Indigenous artist, record producer and engineer whose newest album is titled Spirit of Hip Hop: Elements out on MNRK Music Group.
Producer and engineer David Strickland talks about his new album, Spirit of Hip Hop: Elements, which shines a light on the next generation of Indigenous MCs in North America.
He has mixed songs for Drake, Method Man, Redman and many more but David Strickland says he just assumes nobody knows who he is.
Toronto’s David “Gordo” Strickland worked on Drake’s debut studio album Thank Me Later a decade ago, but Aubrey Graham was still a kid when the destined producer, engineer, and mixer got his start in Toronto’s burgeoning hip-hop scene as a b-boy, then DJ—then behind the boards.
Among the top recipients of these awards was Mi’kmaq Grammy-winning music producer and artist David Strickland, who took home “Hip Hop Single of the Year,” “Collaboration of the Year,” and “Producer of the Year” for his album “Spirit of Hip Hop.”
