Sebastien Todd, AKA Seb Todd is a 25-year-old music producer and DJ, and a product of the Montreal house scene. While Todd dabbles in both tech house and techno subgenres, it's his tech house music that is his trademark.
“I like a rhythmic bass, upbeat, really uplifting music that makes you feel good, but is punchy at the same time. It's my sound,” he said.
Todd's musical awakening began at a young age when he was trying to write songs on piano and guitar. He then discovered house music and EDM at the age of 17 and it completely changed his life. Combining his love for house music with his talent for songwriting was the logical next step for him, and thanks to that, he has been producing music for over eight years now.
“I will never forget that day. I was at a party with my friends and out of nowhere I just had this thought where I knew from that day on I'm a producer and I don't want to stray from that I'm now a producer,” Todd said.
Not only does he make music under the name Seb Todd, but he's also part of a duo called 18 Hz with DJ and producer Luca Teoli. It was under the name of 18 Hz that Todd won a competition to remix the song "The Sequel" by Tita Lau against 400 other competitors.
Another of his proudest accomplishments was hitting the 100,000 stream mark on his own song “Work That.” The tune was released in September 2021 as part of an EP of the same name. Todd was “so happy that he celebrated for a whole week. »
With his immense passion for music and his remarkable talent, Todd has all the tools to succeed in the Montreal house scene. There is no doubt that Seb Todd is a name you will hear about for many years.
“My main goal is to write really good music that's timeless and can be played at raves 30 years from now and will still be good,” Todd said.
