New LSA Tutor S.M.I.T.H breaks into the top Tech House charts!
We've got a new tutor at the LSA Hoxton studios! S.M.I.T.H, aka Ben has been DJ'ing in London and Essex with his unique mixing style of deep and funky tech house infused with a little techno, setting himself aside from the rest with his unique style of mixing and track selection, every time he gets on the deck's you are sure to be impressed with the technical fluidity of his mixing, ranging from deep and dark house through to upbeat tech house and techno, never missing a beat.
Having performed at many venues such as Ministry of Sound, Egg London, Lightbox/Fire, Work Bar (DJ Mag), Shelter, We Are FSTVL, and also Tribal Underground just to name a few, he has become very comfortable playing alongside big named headline acts such as Lee Foss, Low Steppa, Ellie Cocks, Alexis Raphael, wAFF, Glimpse, Brodanse, Randall M and many more.
S.M.I.T.H is a name to look and listen out for in the near future sending great vibes across the dance floor with his DJ set's, But also with his own music production, you can hear him playing the majority of his own music in his set's when he plays out but also on his most recent release's.
In terms of production, S.M.I.T.H has always been influenced and inspired by old Jazz/Soul/Funk vibes which you can hear elements of in lots of his tracks to create his unique groove.
Now with 3 EP release's under his belt don't be surprised to see him heading for some bigger labels in the near future due to his latest release on Music Related Records reaching number 31 in the tech house top 100 Beatport chart and getting into the overall top 100 Beatport chart at number 90, which is a huge achievement and put his EP as one of the best performing EP's Music Related have released.
The new EP which is titled "In Sulcus EP" is a mixture of rolling minimal and tech house grooves with an added bit of soulfulness. The track titles on the EP are all in Latin and well as the EP title to which they translate...... In Sulcus - In The Groove, Sub Purpura - Purple Underground, and finally Ut Det Mihi - Give it to Me. For some added weight to the EP Music Related bosses, Ben Murphy and Luke Hazell arranged for The Acid Kids to remix the main track "In Sulcus" to which they did a fantastic job.
