DJ Grouch backs Maestro Fresh Wes at the Raptors vs. Cavaliers NBA Finals

Along with the Toronto Raptors and Cleveland Cavaliers, one of our very own instructors hit the hardwood at the recent quarterfinal round of the NBA’s Eastern Conference Finals.

Oscar Betancourt, teacher at Trebas’ Audio Engineering and Production/DJ Arts training and Music Production program, was invited to perform a half-time set for a packed crowd at Toronto’s Air Canada Center. As DJ Grouch, Oscar backed the “godfather of Canadian Hip Hop” himself, Maestro Fresh Wes.

“I’m stoked and honoured,” wrote DJ Grouch when announcing this gig to his fans over Instagram.

It was an exciting opportunity for our DJ Arts instructor, but not out-of-the-ordinary: this month alone he’s also played impressive sets for both Lulaworld and CBC Music Festivals. It’s his hands-on experience and commitment to his craft that make him such a valued presence on Trebas’ Toronto campus.

When not rubbing shoulders with LeBron James and DeMar DeRozan, you can find DJ Grouch here in the DJ training studio introducing students to a range of recording techniques and state-of-the-art audio equipment. Those with an ear for high-quality track mixing and boundary-pushing soundscapes are welcome to come and join in.
