Up and Coming NZ DJ/Producer.
There are many electronic music DJs and producers in the world, but there is only one Blacksmith. His taste, creativity, and compositional style are about as common as his fingerprint!
This NZ born Samoan has an extreme eclectic taste in music ranging from 1930 to now. If you could name every/any spawn of each music genre as time has progressed, Blacksmith will have it on record, 8-track, cassette, VHS, MD, CD and DVD. Not really but now you have my attention continue reading the bio below.
BlackSmiths music career spans over 15 years ever since his debut behind the decks at the age of 14 he still loves the rush of putting on a show for the crowd. He strives to this day to increase the volume of the music in the club and reflect it with the decibel levels of the people in the room with him.
Influenced by other national and international producers in many eclectic styles and genres, BlackSmiths wide span DJ career gave him over a decade to understand music in its flexible form. It is the molding of this music that sparks the creativity in his sets and he has also taken this understanding further using this when in his producing studio.
BlackSmith believes that music is our international language, its how we speak to each other from miles apart. It is the beauty of this spoken word in audio waves which we can hear what the producer/s are trying to say and how they are expressing their moment in production.
Progression is a stage many of us attempt to reach in life, but just like music we can only define what we have now or create something completely different.
To play or not to play....
What to play and when to play...
Whether its prime time club pushing or low key red wine sessions of soul'ed out grooves, Blacksmith always vacates those with an ear or two and those wanting to wade those weekly troubles down the drain.
