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.

Keys N Krates formed in 2008 out of a desire to do something different. They wanted to take the remix/electronic sound out of the studio and onto the stage, creating a new live electronica experience. The Toronto-based trio – comprised of the high-energy Adam Tune on drums, synth-master David Matisse on keys, and internationally award-winning Jr. Flo on turntables – began by locking themselves in a rehearsal room for six months to create and finesse their unique sound and identity. The result? A blend of hip-hop, electronica, and jam that truly shows off the artistry of the live remix. Keys N Krates collage raw samples and twist them with live instrumentation, creating a unique party sound. With two live off-the-floor mixtapes and a slew of official remixes under their belt, the outfit is set to release their next EP “So-Lo” on Dim Mak Records in 2013. Over the last year, KNK toured with and played alongside artists including; Pretty Lights, Lotus, Skrillex, Girl Talk, Kid Cudi, Metric, Timbaland, Zed’s Dead and more. In 2012 the band continued to make an impact on the festival scene, playing major shows at Wakarusa, Ultra Music Festival, Movement Festival, Osheaga and Sonar in Barcelona. The band also produced several hype machine chart topping remixes for Bassnectar, Adventure Club, Zeds Dead and Nelly Furtado. To really grasp what Tune, Matisse, and Jr. Flo bring to the stage, you have to see it up close. Their shows are filled with high-energy sets that are made to be witnessed live. The guys continue to craft and grow their sound and style, exposing audiences worldwide to the Keys N Krates experience.
