Seán Savage was born in Toronto, Canada and spent his summers in London, England. Due to this, he was exposed to many genres of music. With a background in Master Engineering, he has graduated from Toronto’s Harris Institute for the Arts from the Producer Engineering Program and secured an internship at The Other Studio, the mastering studio. He has many talents, including being a producer, a remixer, a performer and a radio presenter. It is his love of music however that drives him to be so profound. It was after he started playing his own songs in DJ sets that provided his drive. In 2013, Savage founded his own music label, Dibgate Records. Due to his consistent work ethic, he has released several bodies of work, since the starting of his record label. It’s this unique sound that differentiates Mr. Savage from everyone else. His current productions and mixes are only the start of something spectacular. Toronto has seen nothing yet….
