Hey hey friends, today I'm kicking off the interview series for my forthcoming remix album. First up is DJ Smooth out of Orlando. I met up with Mike about 6 months back b/w of the Funky Flavor crew who brought me out in the summer. He recently reworked "Hands Up" and then had a nice chat with our head field agent about all things BASS... Peep the interview below... Interview by Kelly Ross | Agent 137
Tell me about your start: I started the Scratch Academy in Miami about 4 years ago where I learned the basics on vinyl, etc for 6 months and then I moved to Orlando.
How did you come to do a remix for this album? I met Scotty Frazier [Funky Flavor Breakbeat Culture] and I showed Scotty a few projects so Scotty introduced me to Wes Smith and he hit me up to do a remix.
What’s the DJ Smooth spin on the remix? My style brings in electro and trap elements with a breaks flavor.
What else are you working on right now? Goldillox [Danielle Wells] and I have a new project called HYPER MONK3Y and we have about 20 tracks together already. We are looking to drop that closer to the Winter Music Conference in Miami, it’s really high energy and a lot of fun. Also, I have another collab with a friend in Tampa we just did a show together for Halloween as HardCastle & McCormick. We work really well together and have a darker trap style.
Thank you, Mike! Good luck on your new projects, the release and see you in Miami in March.
