Christian Smith

Christian Smith isn’t trying to reinvent the wheel. He likes new music, but he’s also a stalwart for what he knows is good – classic techno and house. Brought up among the earliest offerings of German techno, the Swedish investment banker turned DJ has his international lifestyle to thank for his current influences. Now based in Brazil, Christian Smith has made an impressive name for himself, recently celebrating the success of his label, Tronic, which reached 100 releases in what will soon be its 20th year. 

With this level of experience, Smith knows what appeals to his fans. His new album, Omakase, is a straight-up club album that plays with genres within the genre. Techno is the album’s dominant flavour, but it showcases shots of melodic, peak time and minimal in the mix. As for his remix history, Smith doesn’t believe in revamping a song for the sake of it – but the tracks he has done have been seminal hits like Carl Craig’s At Les and Underworld’s Dark and Long, that were too big to pass up. His Asian tour will celebrate Omakase’s release and a series of collaborations with the likes of DJs Wehbba and Bushwacka.
