Smash HiFi Exclusive Interview


50% Prodigy badman and 50% Breakspoll-destroyer, Smash HiFi are flying at the moment! Leeroy Thornhill and Marten Horger are the smiliest men in bass music business and they have good reason to be, here's what they had to say to us when we caught up . . .

1. You guys are like the bass music version of the Avengers. You are a music super hero team. If you were actually proper super heroes. Which one would you be?

Marten: Captain Bacon, for obvious reasons.

Leeroy: Sir Grinalot, For obvious reasons.


2. You are both based in Germany. Marten, guten tag, you are German obviously, and we know you love your Canadian bacon. How is the German food? Leeroy, now you live there, do you miss the traditional English Breakfast?

M: I grew up in a Restaurant, my mom is a proper Chef. I looooooove german food. It has to be done well though.

L: I have found an English shop that has real bacon and not 'fakeon" like the American stuff. The bread here is awesome, so I get by on brekkie, but I must admit German food is even blander than English.



3. While you were over in London recently Marten, a little birdie told me you were looking for shoes. Leeroy, we know you love a nice pair of kicks. Can you both tell us what you coolest pair are and why?

L: Marten was after some Jimmy Choos i think. Me? I still roll in my Nike Air Max. Always on point.

M: I’m not really a big sneaker collector tbh. For me it’s more like finding a pair that i really like and then buying like, 5 of them. You should see my collection of identical black t-shirts.

L: His wardrobe is like Homer Simpsons’. It all looks exactly the same.


4. The reason for your recent trip to London, was of course for the infamous Breakspoll awards. Marten, you cleaned up across the board. Can you tell us exactly what you won and how you felt about it on the night.

L. I just wanna say im buzzing for Marten picking up both awards. He deserves them.

M: I won 'Best Track“ & 'Best Producer'. It feels awesome, even though i don’t see myself as someone who stands for "that traditional breakbeat sound“. Also LGFU (the track that won) was my first ever solo single. So it’s even more special for me.




5. We love the latest release on Instant Vibes. Can you tell us how you linked up with Mr Krafty Kuts.

M: Thanks man! Krafty has been a friend of ours for a veeeeeery long time now. He has helped me a lot.

L: I remember getting asked to go to a club and meet him. I was all excited about meeting the LEGEND for the first time. I was really trying to think of something funny to say to break the ice. I was also gonna try and blag a few of his famous burgers and maybe some toys. Then i get to the club, and... was it Krusty? LIKE F&CK WAS IT. It was some dude called Krafty... But then i realised i quite liked his music, so we got on after all.

6. Whats next for Smash HIFI after this single?

L: We have an album 80% finished so will be getting back to that and working on a new single.

M: Yes, and we are also giving away some free music in the next few weeks.


7. Leeroy, any solo stuff are you working on at the moment? I have seen a few pictures of you in the studio with a guitar recently. Are you thinking of working on an acoustic 'unplugged' album?

No, my singing and dancing days are over. I still like to destroy a few good songs with my bad guitar playing every now and then. Right now, I am toying around with a few tunes but i need to be really happy with them so they are taking time.

8. You guys DJ all over the world. What has been your favourite place to play so far?

M: For me it is defiantly Kazantip. Followed closely by North America and Australia. There will also, always be a special place in my heart for my hometown.

L. Just to many to name. Kazantip is an amazing experience. Asia & Italy also always deliver.


9. Any crazy tour stories?

L. Pole dancing on the bar at Kazantip and not even remembering doing.

m: I think that youtube video has like 30k hits now.


10. What are your plans for the summer?

L: We are looking to get some more music out there, finish the album and push the gigs. and party, party.

M: Yeah, I have a full summer touring Europe and North America. But before that i’m taking 4 weeks off to concentrate on making music.

Hot Cakes & Funk and Filth at Brixton Jamm! A beast of a night approaches!!



[Scroll down for LOADS of free downloads!]

Oh yes!! People of London! This. Is. Happening!!!

Following our Funk and Filth Summer Party back in August, and the level of destruction that you lot caused, we have been banned from North London for the foreseeable future . . . but this just means we get to take on South London this time!!

We've teamed up with Hot Cakes to take over Brixton Jamm on Saturday May 10th 2014 . . . and it's looking like it will be a truly monstrous night!

CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS

Comment here to tell us which DJ/act you are most looking forward to hearing on the night,
and you could WIN A PAIR OF TICKETS!


This will be happening on the night!!!

Room 1 will see the Hot Cakes guys bringing Deekline & Majestic, Freestylers LIVE, Danny Byrd, Jurassik and Parametric to do what they do best: play big, loud, gorgeous bassy music for you lovely lot.

Room 2 sees Funk and Filth bringing together some of the best talent form near and far, as Kane FM stalwarts Floored Capri & Robi Wan, Brightonian beatsmith MassEvil and breaks and bass magician Kwerk join the familiar faces (and hairy legs) of Mr Tumnus and Doctor Hooka to smash out the finest basslines known to man (and maybe some previously unknown to man too!).


ROOM 2 - Funk and Filth

Doctor Hooka

We are frickin delighted to announce that Doctor Hooka will once again be joining us to dish out his own special sort of medicine! As the proud dispenser of the 'First Ever Official Set at a Funk and Filth Party' last summer it is only right that we have him back again to deliver his concoction of funky ass basslines! Here it is, the first ever set performed at a Funk and Filth party (taken from August 2013!) He's also mixed together a load of brand new sets to celebrate the upcoming party in Brixton!!!

MassEvil

Brighton-based DJ/Producer MassEvil is the epitome of the Funk and Filth sound, with some work that saw him storm into the Funk and Filth Hall of Fame in December! "Glitched out, face melting, heart pumping bass heavy breaks" is how he describes his own sound. We'd have to agree there, but there's actually even more than that . . . looking forward to seeing him smash it up at Jamm!


CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD NEW FREE 'KNEAD A BREAK' MIXTAPE FROM MASSEVIL -

CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD NEW EXCLUSIVE EDIT FROM MASSEVIL



Floored Capri & Robi Wan [Kane FM]

Floored Capri & Robi Wan host the Floored Fillers show on Kane 103.7 FM. Best known for their genre-bending sets, spanning electronica, jungle, hip-hop and breaks, lathered with ample portions of low-end and a dark, dub-wise undercurrent driving the mix. Expect a melting pot of infectious beats and dangerously heavy sub from these two Surrey lads. Bring. It. On!



Mr Tumnus

Mr Tumnus, as well as being a half-man half-goat from the magical land of Narnia, is also a DJ/producer from Guildford, dropping the dirtiest hip-hop, drum n bass and electronica that he can get his little cloven hooves on. Those who attended our Funk and Filth Summer Party back in August 2013 may recognize him as Uppercut! But after the utter filth of his closing set almost destroyed The Garage he’s had to go into hiding and change his identity! This time he will bring both sides of the Funk & Filth event with 2 naughty sets, early and late. Bring your loafers!




Kwerk

Kwerk came thumping onto the scene in a major way last year with some top notch remixes and a mixtape so damn fine that it made its way into the Funk and Filth Mix Of The Year Poll! Amazing stuff, and we can expect more dancefloor-stomping, ribcage-rumbling breaks and bass as he decimates the speakers in Brixton.





ROOM 1 - Hot Cakes


Deekline

The legend that is Deekline will be teaming up on the night with Majestic to celebrate the launch of I Don't Smoke 2014! Yeah, you read correctly, the anthem is getting a fresh re-working for 2014! Expect the trademark booty breaks and larger than life basslines to really give Jamm's Funktion One system a good rogering!!



Freestylers - Live

Featuring the classic line-up of Navigator and Tenor Fly, Freestylers LIVE is the act threatening to truly do some damage on the night! Surely the fellas need little (or no) introduction, as their reputation speaks for itself! This is going to be special.



Danny Byrd [Hospital Records]

Drum and bass the way it should be, that's what Hospital Records has become known for over the years, and Danny Byrd is no exception! We're looking forward to some utter filth from DB - I hope you've got some sturdy raving shoes!



Jurassik

London's legendary party-starter Jurassik will be clawing at the decks with his T-Rex arms, dishing out the sort of epic beats and bass that would have definitely have finished the dinosaurs off if they were still alive! Have a taste of his brand new free download right here to check out his current flavour!
