He has literally done everything in the electronic music scene!! Al will have the full support of the Bugs to get things going on this night, with free range to express himself and play some deep techy vibes that will get the dance floor buzzin before the main man himself, Christian Smith, comes on to drop bomb after bomb!!

Always a cool vibe and that's not going to change anytime soon.
It's hard to imagine a list of prolific dj/producers for the last 10 years without Christian Smiths name towards the top. Having consistently dominated charts and DJs playlists with a steady flow of releases on high profile labels like Bedrock, Systematic, 100% Pure, Soma, Global Underground, Mistakes Music, 1605,Sci-Tech and his own Tronic imprint, there has barely been a month go by without news circulating of an exciting new Christian Smith production. As such, the techno tastemaker begins 2014 secure in his position as one of the most evergreen performers in his field. A DJ and producer who has operated at the top of his game for over a decade. Experienced enough to intuitively gauge what works best on the dance floor yet open-minded enough to move with shifting trends; Smith has accomplished the dual achievement of being both unshakably credible amongst his peers and popular within a global audience, as a whole new generation of fans discover Christians trademark blend of high impact tech house and musical techno.However, this latest chapter of what has been a varied and dynamic career will come as no surprise to those who have followed Christian Smith’s productions over recent years. Having delivered the crossover record of 2008 - Total Departure on Adam Beyer’s Drumcode label – Christian followed up with a succession of fresh sounding club bombs that surfaced on John Digweed’s Bedrock label, Dubfire’s Sci+Tec, the legendary Renaissance, and Steve Lawler’s ultra cool Viva imprint throughout 2009. Next came chart-topping productions such as the Beatport #1 Air Miles track on 100% Pure, the anthemic remixes of Carl Craig’s seminal At Les, which proved to be a mainstay of Beatport’s Top 10 through summer 2010, and a run of club-smashing tracks such as Pitanga (Systematic), Cabecudas, System Of Survival, (Bedrock), The Price of Freedom (1605) and Automatic (100% Pure). 2012 promises more of the same with new projects for Bedrock, Systematic and 100% Pure as well as new material on Tronic including a collaboration EP with Florian Meindl and remixes for Marc Romboy and Bushwacka. Profile Image (590x404)Supplementing Christians original output has been a series of remixes of classic and current tracks which have propelled Smith to the position of being one of the most in-demand remixers within his scene. Underworld (Dark & Long), Laurent Garnier (Flashback), Funk D’Void (Diabla) and Robotman aka Richie Hawtin (Do Da Doo) have all been reborn thanks respectful but energized reworks of stone- cold club anthems, while artists as varied as John Digweed, Sharam, Steve Angelo, Bushwacka, Mauro Picotto, Marc Romboy, Rodriguez Jr, Darren Emerson, Gabriel Ananda, Spektre, D-Nox & Beckers and Doomwork have all turned to Christian for something extra on their releases. The net result has been the successful transformation of Christian from a member of the old school techno elite to one of the lead players in the current marketplace with a 22nd placing in Resident Advisors “most charted producer of all time” poll and an almost non-stop presence in the upper end of the Beatport sales charts - an achievement recognized by the award of 3rd place in Beatport’s 2010 “Best Techno Producer” poll.The popularity of Christians big-room, crossover sound with its melodic, euphoric highs and rhythmical funk energy is testament to the multi-genre draw of Christians music. This breadth of appeal is evident in both the DJ support Christian receives and also in the gigs Christian plays. Regular supporters ranging from techno stalwarts like Richie Hawtin and Adam Beyer through to tech house DJs like 2000 And One and Stephan Bodzin, and even trance superstars like Tiesto and Sander Van Doorn.
Look forward to seen you all on the dance floor!!
