Shmitty

“Anyone can play a familiar track that’ll make the crowds go crazy. The challenge is finding a sound that no one knows and evoking the same reaction.” –Shmitty

It’s this challenge that fuels Shmitty’s never-ending chase for the perfect sound. The Los Angeles-based, Netherlands-born producer/DJ combines funktion and form with style, taste, and class; he mans the decks like a sniper at the watchtower, with house and techno as his artillery. A chameleon onstage, shifting from groovy down-tempo to cultish techno, he covers the full spectrum of true house music.

With a deep knowledge of the history of electronic music and with a direct mainline source to the current music landscape, Shmitty melds past and present in all his meticulous sets, which have allowed him to share the stage with a diverse roster of dance music titans, including A-Trak, Claude VonStroke, Dash Berlin, Cosmic Gate and countless others. The stage is his first home, having performed at some of the top venues and music festivals across the US, including Escape from Wonderland and the Hollywood Palladium, as well as Los Angeles nightclubs Create and Exchange LA, where he holds a double residency.

With the stage as his castle, the studio is his laboratory, where he grinds out techno and house-laced deep cuts, including his original debut track “Claves & Warps” featuring Tyler Rouse. The track goes hand in hand with his forthcoming single, “Pressurize” again with Tyler Rouse, out this May to create the knockout combo you didn’t see coming.

On the stage and in the studio, Shmitty dominates his craft. You’ll hear it in his sets. You’ll feel it in his music. And when you do, you’ll be in for a ride.
