Christian Smith (Tronic/Drumcode)

It’s the rare DJ who can appeal to the clubbing masses while also maintaining their credibility in the underground, but Swedish techno maestro Christian Smith has managed to do exactly that.

Christian is one of the world’s leading exponents of techno, both as a DJ and producer, and is renowned for being both bold and innovative. With his output in recent years, it is hard to imagine a list of the leading techno 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.

With tracks issued on underground labels such as Drumcode and Sci+Tec combined with releases on more above-ground imprints including Renaissance and Bedrock, Christian has shown he can move effortlessly between both worlds – and notch up hundreds of thousands of sales along the way.

Christian’s open-minded outlook comes through loud and clear in the music he plays and produces. While his roots lie in techno, Christian has never been a purist; favouring instead to infusing the tough, rhythmical music he loves with heavy doses of funk or intersperse the raw energy of his sets with inspired moments of pure euphoria.

And as boss of Tronic, the No 2 top-selling techno label in the world according to Beatport, and with more than 200 releases, Christian is also responsible for providing the techno world with tracks by the genre’s heaviest hitters including Carl Craig, Laurent Garnier, Johannes Heil and Mauro Picotto.

On May 11, Christian will be bringing the Tronic sound that continues to dominate the Beatport techno charts to Hong Kong for his latest local gig at Afterdarkandbeyond, where he’ll be supported by PUSH residents Frankie Lam and AKW, and special guest Jeremy Cheung.
