Magic Carpet Ride by Wes Smith

Hi friends....my third studio album, Magic Carpet Ride, is on the loose.  Albums are always special to me because unlike a club banger or EP of singles, an album is a cohesive collection of work that flows from end to end (and meant to be listened to that way) around a fun idea.

Like my previous two albums, there's a lot of ghetto funk and hip hop influence wrapped up with an arsenal of current EDM and Bass heavy sounds.  So kick back in your favorite lawn chair, bust it out buy the pool, or put it on repeat for that road trip...most of all, have fun.  Oh, and thanks for all your support over the years;)

Official label blurb as well as the Promo Mix, The Armory Mix, and Other fun stuff here [Link]!

Magic Carpet Ride is a journey through the vast ocean of influences that have shaped Wes Smith’s party rockin’ audio landscape.  I’m Trippin’ kicks off the ride with a taste of Summertime funk.  Yabadabbadoo and Rock the Jam continue the low end hustle and drop you off at the upbeat vocals of Body Move.  All About The Funk and Feels Good bring the four to the floor vibes pushing you squarely into the breakbeat rhythms on Back Again.  Before you surface, the ragga vibe on Murdera sends you on one more deep dive before blazing out on Down Town.

It’s Wes Smith Yo – The Album Remixed Vol 2 : Beatslappaz Interview

And now...wrapping up the IWSY Remixed Volume 2 interview series...some of the baddest and funniest bass makers on the planet...from the land down under, the one, the only Beatslappaz;) Interview by Kelly Ross/Agent 137

Tell us ... who are you?

A: We’re the Beatslappaz, a duo that’s been writing music and playing shows together for the last 10 years.

BeatSlappaz Please give me a brief background on your dj/production experience:

A: We first got together after being brought onto a radio show as guests that ran from Midnight till 6am on a Sunday morning. We had similar tastes and goals and decided to form up into the duo we are now.

We had our first release on vinyl way back in 2007, then went quiet for a bit until we reformed a few years back to start producing again - and here we are! Tell us which remix you did for the IWSY remix album:

A: Wes Smith - Hands Up!

What made you choose this particular song?

A: We generally only remix songs where the song title tells you what activity you should be doing while you’re listening to it. What is your Wes Smith connection? 

A: When you see a man with mutton chops that you respect, you don’t just throw him a life-jacket. You swim one out to him. I hit him up over Facebook to let him know that I loved his work and we bonded over fish tacos. While we haven’t met yet, I can tell the guy is one of the nicest guys in the business and lord knows he works hard for it.

Screen Shot 2016-04-20 at 3.25.59 PM What’s next on next for you after this? Do you have any upcoming projects/remixes you would like to mention?

A: Our homies at Punks Music have us locked in for a few projects. “The Drop” is our next original that’s going to hit shelves soon, along with a remix for Wuki and the Stanton Warriors. Big things! We really want to head back to the states and play a few shows there, so look for that later this year as well.

Any last thoughts?

A: I would like to ask you a question - Would you rather have hiccups for the rest of your life, or would you rather permanently feel like you’re going to sneeze but never do?
