SmartAlec


Read the SmartAlec Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


I go by the name of SmartAlec. I'm 23 years young and from the OC, California. I mainly produce Jungle Terror, Trap, Moombahton, and Hard House. I have been supported by Artists such as: 4B, Diplo, GTA, MakJ, Danny Avila, Kennedy Jones, and many more. You can find my sounds here: Soundcloud.com/smartalec and follow me on twitter @djsmartalec !


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


My idols, influence, and the reason I produce music/why I am an aspiring DJ is because of my good friends GTA. Their style of music is like nobody else in the game. They never fail to disappoint and always continue to encourage me to produce harder and stronger than before. When I first heard of GTA back in 2012, I immediately knew what I wanted to do as a career and as a passion. In all honesty, their style hasn't changed much and I appreciate that because once you find your style of music you love to produce, you stick with it. I have been producing for 3 years now and I can tell my style has changed but thats mainly because I was experimenting with what I produced best. You'll find that most of my songs contain Hard House with a bit of trap and or moombahton vibes.


What´s new right now?


Coming in the beginning of 2018, I will be releasing my track "Pursuit" which has been supported by the Jungle Terror king himself, WIwek. It is set at 140 BPM and contains Hard House/Trap/Moombahton. I have a bunch of unreleased tracks for 2018 and I can't wait for you to hear them.
