Hunter Pearson is the author of WhatTheHunt.com
Hunt’s obsession with music started at an early age. The classically-trained pianist started banging on keys while he was still in diapers, and his passion for music and technology naturally evolved into deejaying and music production.
With a diploma in Recording Arts from the Art Institute in Vancouver, Hunt is an accomplished music producer & recording engineer; his original remixes are played in clubs and on radio across the world and he’s worked with many of Canada’s most respected hiphop artists. After several years at one of Vancouver’s premier recording facilities, Hipposonic Studios, Hunt is now working independently while splitting his time between Vancouver and Los Angeles.
In 2007, Hunt assumed the role of Executive Producer for Vancouver’s only hiphop television show, Pass Da Mic. Over the course of the show’s final two seasons on-air, he managed the entire operation and hosted on-camera interviews with many acclaimed members of the music industry including N.E.R.D, Lil Jon, Mims and more.
Hunt is also the creator of hunt.FM an online mixshow dedicated to promoting newly released hiphop and R&B music. In strict contrast to today’s mainstream radio, Hunt assembles regular ‘New Music Mixes’ that have never contained the same song twice – an ambitious feat that is unmatched by any other popular music mixshow.
Together with co-host Jenno Chand, they have produced over 100 episodes to date that have featured highly recognized guest deejays and artists from around the world including DJ Wristpect, Carl Henry, Jeremih, DJ Baby Yu, Vanguards, Famous, Jay Swing & Flipout, DJ Big Syphe, DJ Psar, Red 1, GMAN&RIZK and many more.
