Pittsburgh musician and DJ Gregg Gillis, a.k.a. Girl Talk, has announced his first North American tour in eight years.
The mashup artist will kick off the route on April 29th in Cleveland, Ohio, and will play nearly 20 shows throughout the U.S. and Canada before wrapping June 7th with a set at New York’s Governors Ball festival.
Gillis hasn’t performed on tour in the U.S. since concluding the run for his 2010 album, All Day. He rose to fame through his creative use of samples and dance-ready mashups on his first two albums, 2006’s Night Ripper and 2008’s Feed the Animals. He has been featured in the documentaries Good Copy Bad Copy and RiP!: A Remix Manifesto, where he discussed the copyright laws surrounding his use of other artists’ music.
In recent years, Gillis has collaborated with hip-hop artists as a producer, including with Wiz Khalifa, T-Pain, Tory Lanez, Freeway, Young Nudy, Bas, Cozz, Erick the Architect (of Flatbush Zombies), Smoke DZA and Don Q.
