Toronto’s city mayor Rob Ford is a character. The 64th mayor of the city has had a checkered history in public office, including a conflict of interest trial and the leak of a video that allegedly showed him smoking crack.

Ford is reportedly a bit of an electronic music fan, and he recently visited the Rivoli nightclub in Toronto to inaugurate the Beats Academy running in the city. To commemorate the occasion, he decided to wile out on an Ableton Live system and MIDI controller to drop some phat beats.
