TRIBÜ Collective presents: "A monthly Techno Ritual" with Christian Smith (Tronic Music / Drumcode)
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. 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 Beatport's Techno Top 10 for over a month.
