Saved By The Bell: After-School DJ Series: Abscond

Friday, October 30, 3 pm

Walking home from school? Studying? Taking a work break? Tune in, chill out and vibe to live sets by local youth DJs from our AGO Youth Community. 

Abscond will be digging deep in the archives to mix up something eclectic on Friday, October 30!

This program is part of the partner series, AGO Live: Hello From The Other Side where we welcome partners from across the city to use the AGO as a site for their programs in an effort to revitalize the arts in our city.

The Art Gallery of Ontario is part of the network of large-scale institutions across North America and its partner organizations tend to be the same scale. However, the Gallery’s size is a function of growth, and nurturing cycle of art makers, art thinkers and art community builders often starts within. The AGO Youth Program has partnered with several community organizations over the years. Hello From The Other Side highlights these relationships, inviting DJs who are (past and new) community members to bring fresh sounds to our shared COVID-19 experience. 

From Dallas, Texas, Abscond has resided in the continent's North, in Toronto, since an early age. Always intrigued and excited about discovering new music, during his journey as a musician, he realized that being a DJ was the best way to share his discoveries with others. 

So he's been involved in the city's underground art scene as a creative sound curator for the last four years, spinning everything from hip hop, throwbacks, and Afrobeats to genres like house, garage, and Soulection. 

And he's worked with great collectives and companies like Dudebox, Manifesto, Blank Canvas, New Currency, 25HRS, and many other fellow DJs in the city.
