Biography

Sound Bluntz It’s no mean feat to score a Juno award for your very first song, much less take home a second “Canadian Grammy” the following year for your sophomore single. But The Sound Bluntz’ rapid-fire success only whet the duo’s appetite for an even bigger challenge—bringing dance music back to old heights with their first full-length Blame The Bling.

Swet and Lil’ Pete have been staples of Toronto’s competitive nightlife scene for well over a decade, whether spinning in the city’s biggest clubs or producing and remixing a solid set of booty-shakers.

Cory actually started out as a battle DJ in the mid-80s—an interesting choice for the young teen considering his mother is related to legendary Canadian pianist Glenn Gould, his great-uncle worked with Dizzy Gillespie, another uncle played saxophone alongside Edwin Starr (on “War,” no less) and Cory learned to drum by jamming with yet another uncle’s funk band in his grandma’s basement.

But once techno and house music spread out from Chicago and Detroit, Cory became instantly hooked. The 18-year-old soon joined up with Chris Sheppard, a Toronto radio DJ who helped spread electronic dance music throughout Canada thanks in no small part to Cory’s considerable influence.
