Christian Smith talks to BeatsandBeyond and talks about the reason for his upcoming solo LP; "I have now released on all of my favourite labels and the only way to push and challenge myself as an artist is to produce albums.."
A certain Luca Citoli sampled a full track of Christian Smith's "Price is freedom" and released it as his own name ..... Christian is, at least to say, not happy.
More details and links to the track on his Facebook.
Swedish citizen, Christian Smith spent the late 80’s years in Germany soaking up the early house and techno sound of Sven Vath. Now based in Sao Paulo, he has been championing his funky mix of house and soulful techno for more than a decade, playing across Asia, North & South America, and Europe, plus regular slots at festivals like UK’s Creamfields, Holland’s Dancevalley, Spain's Monegros and Belgium’s I Love Techno. His music released on a variety of top labels like Renaissance; Adam Beyer's Drumcode, Josh Wink’s Ovum, 100% Pure, John Digweed's Bedrock, and his very own Tronic, only proves his flexibility in the studio. Similarly on the decks, Christian’s set is a cauldron of chunky grooves with loads of energy.
