Need a gift for a gifted musician?
One of the hottest DJ/producers to hit the Boston electronic scene recently is L.E.D.FUT, aka Nick Smeed. He got his start as a self-taught Hip Hop, Pop and R&B producer about four years ago and soon after started working with local Hip Hop talent OACE. The quality of their collaboration was quickly recognized, picked up and before long they were opening up for major artist Yung Berg and Jeremy Green. L.E.D.FUT then took tutelage under his good friend DJ Edukation aka Colin Phillips when he recognized that L.E.D.FUT had a very electronic signature to his production. Colin then decided to host L.E.D.FUT TO the 2009 Winter Music Conference in Miami where he exposed him to the world of electronic music. He became infatuated with what he was hearing particularly house music and shortly after departing he picked up the instrumental skill of mixing with vinyl. Running with this new found art he dove head first into the electronic scene, testing the waters with all types and styles until surfacing onto the perfection of his own craft.
Since then L.E.D.FUT has been keeping busy between dreaming up some high-energy multi-genre mixes, producing and hosting premiere local events. Recently he has played with many well well-know artists like John Dahlback, Specimen A, Nigel Richards, Terry Mullen and Dara just to name a few. You can also catch him throwing down at local venues like Rise, Foundation Room, The Phoenix Landing, The Middle East, An Tain, All Asia and more. His brain-child, The Monday Mix, has been picking up tons of steam, showing a lot of support to local artists despite any case of “the Monday’s” that would normally keep everyone indoors. He’s constantly working hard in the studio, posting impressive tracks of that need to be watched for and expanding upon his sound. These credentials have gained him the recognition of labels offering deals for the signing. L.E.D.FUT has what it takes to do some real damage in this scene so keep a watchful eye on this one because he is most definitely a rising star.
