Christian Smith is one of the world’s leading exponents of techno, both as a DJ and producer he is always bold and innovative. With his output in recent years it is hard to imagine a list of prolific producers without his name towards the top. He has been at the top of his game for over a decade with his trademark groovy techno.
Although born in Stockholm, Christian spent most of his childhood years in Frankfurt, Germany which no doubt played an unexpected role in determining his musical tastes from a young age. After spending time in the US studying, Christian moved to Sao Paulo, Brazil playing the best clubs in the city and surrounding regions, where he still loves to play today and continues to have a very big following.
In 1997 he started his label Tronic, since then it has dominated the charts with releases from Christian himself and the likes of Chus & Ceballos, ANNA, Paco Osuna, Loco & Jam, Kaiserdisco, Enrico Sangiuliano, Nick Curly and more. The label is now the No.2 top selling techno label in the world according to Beatport, and it has just celebrated its 200th release.
Tronic also has a weekly show which is now syndicated to over 100 stations worldwide, their 200th show was celebrated with special guest Adam Beyer and now in 2018, they are already fast approaching the 300th episode.
Christian has dominated the charts and DJ’s playlists with a steady flow of releases on many high profile labels like Plus8/Minus, Drumcode, Cocoon, Bedrock, Mobilee and Tronic. His latest EP “Force Majeure” released in July 2016 on Drumcode, was straight in at No3, and stayed Beatports Techno Top 10 for over a month.
He has released three landmark solo albums; “Omakase” in 2013 which secured worldwide praise with a superb selection of tracks that showcased his versatility as a producer.

You can tell when Nick Warren’s on the decks. The music emanating from the DJ booth is that perfect club mix of driving percussion and soaring musicality, bursting out of the speakers, soaking everyone in melody, drenching them in sound. Warren’s impressive career has seen him release the very first “Back to Mine”, a staggering eight albums for “Global Underground”, and one for “Renaissance”. He is also in control of A&R for record label Hope Recordings, as well as being a member of the highly acclaimed duo Way Out West. Starting as tour DJ with Massive Attack, moving onto a residency at super club Cream and playing at every self-respecting club on the planet, has led him to this natural position as one of the world’s most respected DJs.All this history has been eclipsed by Nick’s present: Nick continues to play out every weekend on every continent, whilst also maintaining Hope Recording’s high quality output that they and Warren himself have become synonymous with; his DJ career spans two decades and is driven by a continual desire for change. His sound is forged by an enduring relationship with cutting edge producers all over the globe, in many cases long before they become established. This is no better represented than in the continuing bi-monthly Radio show ‘Soundgarden’ on Friskyradio which attracts over 150000 unique tune-ins to each airing, or his mixes for Digweed’s ‘Transitions’ and now his album for Renaissance.
