Blurring the lines between hip-hop and indie pop, Canadian DJ and producer Ryan Hemsworth has worked with the likes of Sole, Lana Del Rey, Shady Blaze, and Quadron while maintaining a solo career. Raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Hemsworth was attending the city's University of King's College when, while sitting in class, he saw one of his bedroom productions posted on the music website Fader. Ecstatic and then encouraged, the producer sent his tracks to Shady Blaze of the Main Attrakionz crew and the two began a professional relationship. Hemsworth would become Attrakionz's constant engineer and occasional producer, which opened up doors. Work with Deniro Farrar, Sole, and others followed, while Quadron and Lana Del Rey hired Hemsworth for remix work. In 2012 his solo career took off with the release of his Last Words EP on the Wedidit label. A year later, he dropped his debut album, Guilt Trips, on the label Last Gang. The album featured guest appearances from Baths, Lofty305, and others.
