CHRISTIAN SMITH

Mobilee Records - São Paulo (SWE)


 
This latest chapter of what has already been a varied and dynamic career comes as no
surprise to those who have followed Christian Smith?s productions over recent years.
Having delivered the crossover record of 2008 - Total Departure on Adam Beyer?s
Drumcode label – Christian followed up with a succession of fresh sounding club bombs
that surfaced on John Digweed?s Bedrock label, Dubfire?s Sci+Tec, the legendary
Renaissance, and Steve Lawler?s ultra cool Viva imprint through 2009. Next came chart-
topping productions such as the Beatport #1 Air Miles track on 100% Pure, the anthemic
remixes of Carl Craig?s seminal At Les which was a mainstay of Beatport?s Top 10 through
summer 2010 and a run of club-smashing tracks like System Of Survival, The Price of
Freedom and Christian?s remixes of classic tracks from Underworld (Dark & Long), Laurent
Garnier?s (Flashback), Funk D?Void (Diabla) and Robotman aka Richie Hawtin (Do Da Doo). Christian Smith has been at the top of his
game as a DJ and producer for over a decade;
but despite enjoying a global reputation as one
of the most evergreen performers in his field,
times have never been quite as good as they
are right now. A steady flow of releases on
high profile labels like Bedrock, 100% Pure,
1605 and his own Tronic imprint have been
supplemented by Christian?s work as one of
the most in-demand remixers within his scene.
Chart-topping reworks of Underworld, Laurent
Garnier, Carl Craig, John Digweed, and
Robotman (aka Richie Hawtin) have exposed
Christian to a whole new generation of fans
who are discovering Christian?s blend of high
impact tech house and techno for the first time. 

The end result has been the successful transformation of Christian from a member of the
old school techno elite to one of the lead players in the current marketplace with an almost
non-stop presence in the upper end of the Beatport sales charts - an achievement
recognised by the award of 3rd place in Beatport?s 2010 "Best Techno Producer" poll. The
popularity of Christian?s big-room, crossover sound with its melodic, euphoric highs and
rhythmical funk energy is testament to the multi-genre draw of Christian?s music. This
breadth of appeal is evident in both the DJ support Christian receives and also in the gigs
Christian plays. Regular supporters ranging from techno stalwarts like Richie Hawtin and
Adam Beyer through to tech house DJs like 2000 And One Stephan Bodzin and even
trance superstars like Tiesto and Sander Van Doorn. In the last twelve months Christian?s
has played some of the biggest festivals and events in the clubbing calendar including
Sensation White, Chile; Klubbers Day, Madrid, Lovelands, Amsterdam and SW4 Festival,
London as well as making regular stops at Space, Ibiza and Miami; Pacha, Buenos Aires;
Womb and Ageha, Tokyo, Watergate, Berlin; Cocoon, Frankfurt, Circus Montreal, Cat &
Dog, Tel Aviv, Macumba, Madrid; The Loft Barcelona and Café D?Anvers, Antwerp. Proof, if
it was needed, that it is possible for an already successful producer to reinvent their sound
while maintaining their relevance and position at the very pinnacle of electronic music.
