The genre-blurring techno master Christian Smith returns to John Digweed’s Bedrock label with another set of his trademark spellbinding productions.
"It's a pleasure to deliver another EP for Bedrock. This time I made a peak time musical techno track, that has been tested many times and I'm really happy with the reactions on the floor :)" - Christian Smith
“Carambola” is a track that has all the funk you could want, as it spirals ever upwards, powered by gorgeous uplifting keys and strings to create a glorious hands-in-the-air anthem in true show-stopping style. This will be a highlight in many big-room DJ sets all summer long, without a doubt.
“Carambola Green” is equally huge, keeping the funk-factor high and working a stunning techno vibe as it winds up the intensity before unleashing yet another superb hands-in-the-air climax. This is another absolutely masterful creation from Christian Smith, making this is an EP you don’t want to miss out on!
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. While his roots lie in techno, Christian has never been a purist, favouring instead to flavour the melodic, rhythmical music he loves with doses of funk or interspersing the raw energy of his sets with inspired moments of pure euphoria. His big-room, genre-blurring sound is very much suited to the Bedrock ethos of releasing the best quality electronic dance music that goes beyond fads and fashion as this brand new EP demonstrates.
With the momentum of his recent successful releases firmly behind him and with the strength of fresh inspiration driving his ambition forward, the “Carambola EP” shows once again exactly why Christian Smith remains at the top of his game, maintaining his relevance and position at the very pinnacle of electronic music in 2012.
