Dr. Mad is a producer/DJ who has been an integral part of the underground beat scene in Montreal. A member of the super collective ALAIZ (whose other members include The Celestics (Kaytranada & Louie P), producer High-Klassified, J.U.D amongst others), Dr. Mad is someone who is a highly proficient producer who fuses hip-hop, modern funk, neo-soul, R&B.
His latest endeavour is the single "Fortune," a funked-up remix of Clipse and Faith Evans's "Ma I Don't Love Her" from their classic debut Lord Willin. You would agree that his style is pretty varied with his odd yet soulful sample selections and lo-fi approach.
