CHRISTIAN SMITH ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM
This September, Christian Smith will release his next full artist album titled Input-Output consisting of 11 original productions once again displaying his prominence within the realms of underground music.
Each track embodies Christian’s message of creating authentic techno, with powerful percussion and melodic basslines echoing out throughout the entirety of the album.
Christian Smith is one of the world’s leading exponents of techno, both as a DJ and producer he is always bold and innovative, leading rather than following. With his output in recent years it is hard to imagine a list of prolific producers without his name towards the top.
He has consistently dominated charts and DJs playlists with a steady flow of releases on high profile labels like Drumcode, Plus8/Minus, Cocoon and his own Tronic imprint. Christian Smith has operated at the top of his game for over a decade now, with his trademark housy techno. His latest album “Input-Output” (Tronic 2016), the follow-up to his critically acclaimed ”Stranger Than Paradise” (Tronic, 2014), has secured worldwide praise with a superb dancefloor orientated selection of tracks that explore and showcase his various styles within the techno genre: musical, peak-time and minimal
”Explanation is a typical Christian Smith techno tune. I used an analog synth sequence as the main hook, and added a powerful groove and break to the track. Been tested many times and always delivers. Subzero is a very vintage inspired track. It’s rather slow at 120bpm, so that I could give lots of space for the powerful bass line and the TB303 acid line. What I like about this track is that its old school yet futuristic at the same time and works really well on the floor.’’ – Christian Smith
