Beautiful summer techno up next for Sub:terranea courtesy of Tyler Smith
Tyler, who most may know best as ‘Black Smith Craft’, steps up to the ones and twos and crafts a perfectly balanced & expertly mixed 70 minutes of deep and groovy house and techno that will leave you wanting for more.
A true legend of the underground scene, Tyler has been doing what he does best for a long time now and is often found DJ’ing on specialist radio shows around Europe or, if you’re lucky, found playing a little closer to home at underground techno nights such as ‘Detached’ in Leeds and ‘Resonance’ in Birmingham. A true master behind the decks his technical ability and track selection skills shine through in his mix for Sub:terranea.
Having gained something of a mystical status over the years we are very happy and excited to welcome Tyler Smith to the sub:terranea podcast series!
Tyler Smith (aka Black Smith Craft) – (Audiocrash rec., UTCH rec. , Plex rec.) France
Techno unsung hero and veteran Tyler Smith, producer and DJ from northern France, has built a global reputation over the last 15 years for his diverse releases and energetic radio and live shows. Even if his appearances on scene were rare, he played in some of the most respected clubs and festivals across Europe since the late 2000’s under his aliases Tyler Smith and Black Smith Craft : Detatched in Leeds, Reverb parties in London, Trust party at Queen’s day in Amsterdam and more recently at Resonance in Birmingham in 2012.
True activist and altruist minded dude, Tyler has built his reputation on his continued effort to promote a wide range of new stuff and artists related to Detroit to Birmingham inspired stuff, mostly thanks to his huge responsibilities on FM and web radios from 2007 to now.
His dj sets has been spotlighted by lots of podcast owners past years for his never failing track selection and skill at decks.
In real life, Tyler is your neighbour, your colleague at work, your best friend or the dude walking behind you in the street… No distinctive signs (underground undercover). But put a mixer in the man’s hand and you’ll find out he knows his stuff.
