Christian Smith is one of the world’s leading exponents of inventive and diverse techno. Both as a DJ and producer he is always bold and innovative, leading rather than following, exploring the world with his exciting and diverse musical palette.

With “Omakase” (translates as tasting menu or entrust in Japanese) – his follow-up to his critically acclaimed “Director’s Cut” (Tronic, 2010) album – he has created a supreme dancefloor orientated selection of tracks that explore and showcase his various styles within the techno genre: groovy, musical, peak-time and minimal.

This highly anticipated artist album follows a selection of stunning remixes of the finest classics – Underworld “Dark & Long”, Carl Craig “At Les”, Laurent Garnier “Flashback” – and having several Beatport #1’s under his belt. But it was perhaps “House This House” becoming the biggest selling release on Richie Hawtin’s Plus 8 that was the highlight of 2012.
