First Drop : SMiTHMUSiX

SMiTHMUSiX_blacklogo_cmyk_XS.jpg

Following the successful release of his new pop single Summertime Fling (ft. Alyshah) which was released June 17th, 2016, EDM Trap/Twerk artist SMiTHMUSiX aka Stickman launches the first single from his new Trap/Future Bass EP ‘Stick It to the Man’ titled “Independence Day” on July 4th. The EP features collaborations with Jamaican artist RATIGAN and UK artist LADEE LUSH. The 5 track EP will feature ‘Independence Day’, ‘Lose Control’, ‘Flip that Pigeon’, FCKU’, and ‘Dab This’. The first 3 tracks will be available for free download at The Artist Union.

‘Stick It to the Man’ is SMiTHMUSiX’s first full length EP, and features a mix of moods and styles within the Trap/Twerk genre. Each track will be released over the coming months. The album incorporates non-earthlike sounds with futuristic vibe, and tracks vary between dark, hard, head bob, hard drops, and strong, while sticking to SMiTHMUSiX’s spacey storytelling style.

• Independence Day – July 4th: Tells SMiTHMUSiX’s story by taking you inside of a UFO that is about to crash. The track features powerful beats, exciting rhythm, tension, and big sounds.

– Lose Control – August 1st: Party Twerk track with a summer vibe featuring powerful and freaky, dance rhythms in the Jamaican Trap Sound style.

– Flip That Pigeon September 1st: A BIGROOM/Festival style song incorporating dramatic storytelling themes and crowd clapping with audience participation, based around a Robin Hood-style theme.

– FCKU October 1st: A complex Hard Trap, Party, Big Room-Festival track with a powerful and hard feel. The song features 2 movie characters to add flavor to the buildup before the drop hits – party track.

– Dab This October 1st: Trap song, with a smooth feel and crazy chops, building intensity to create the “need” to dab.

SMiTHMUSiX, who also goes by the name Stickman, has made a name for himself with his creative stage show, elaborate backstory, and his unique sound. His stage persona is one of the most elaborate in the Trap/Twerk niche, and that, in combination with his music, is drawing him attention around the web, and at shows. His recent accomplishments include ‘Summertime Fling (ft. Alyshah)’ available as a freebee on The Artist Union, which featured Leeds Singer/Songwriter Alyshah on vocals, and a remix of the hit single ‘Nils van Zandt & Nicci – Up and Down (SMiTHMUSiX Remix)’, which is available on Beatport and Soundcloud.

About SMiTHMUSiX :

After crash landing in 2013, SMiTHMUSiX made Earth his temporary home, and with the help of a few friends, he aims to take the world by storm with his first love, EDM Trap, and hopefully earn enough to repair his spaceship and return home.
