My First Gig: Electronic Duos GTA and MSTRKRFT Recall Their Live Debuts

In this edition of our My First Gig digital series, two electronic DJ duos, the Miami-based GTA and Toronto's MSTRKRFT, reveal the first time they played live. GTA's Julio Mejia remembers simply tagging along with now-partner Matt Toth. "I think we made like, one song," Meija recalls.

MSTRKRFT were lucky to land famous Toronto club The Guvernment for their first gig as a duo, but not playing from where you'd expect. "We weren't even in the DJ booth. We were in the lighting booth," Jesse F. Keeler remembers.

Watch the full clip above, and then check out GTA telling us about their debut album and the songs that have changed their lives below:
