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


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


Ay waddupv ! I'm smthn, but most people call me Chris ?

I'm a waaavy dude, I love making beats and smoking weed. When I ain't doing that I produce for rappers and mix or master the music of others. If you're looking for late night vibes or buzzed up beats I'm your man hahaha !

By the way if some of y'all wind up to my music don't be afraid to send clips over to my snapchat, I fkin love seeing that ! My username's beatpapi lol.

In fact in just released a track this week which was inspired by all the weed users in my town.

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


I am constantly evolving musically as I grow fed up of stuff from over-listening, but I'm really feeling the Toronto sound right now and that whole experimental/underground R&B stuff.

I don't know if y'all have heard of "The Code" but it's worth it that I leave a link to what they do, these guys have had a massive musical impact on my me. https://soundcloud.com/thecxde/same-people

I'd say that my three greatest musical finds of 2017 are Yung Pinch, Holyrain, and The Code, all of them have shaped my sound in some way and I am forever grateful for the music they've put out.

Other than that I'm really influenced by textures. All my songs start mostly from one texture or feeling and I try to add other elements while matching that feeling or texture. One of the main reasons I produce music too is because it brings back childhood memories and gets me in a nostalgic vibe that I crave hard. I fkin loved my childhood hahaha, honestly my dream is to someday have someone come up to me and say "yo ur music brought me 10 years back in time to when I was just an ignorant smily child !".


What´s new right now?


I actually have a gig coming this wednesday hahaha ! It's in Rimouski though so I doubt a lot of people could make it.

Like I mentioned before I just released a new track this week, "on sum wave" so if you're in the mood check that out ! https://soundcloud.com/smthnmusic/on-sum-wave?in=smthnmusic/sets/originals

As for what's coming up I have a lot of collaborations with vocalists in the works as well as the usual drugged up beats I do lol, so stay tuned, my socials are the best way to do that !

Since this project is about 7 months old I'm still tryna get more followers, so if y'all can give a follow that's much appreciated !

Plus I'm a funny ass dude so you won't regret it !

P.S. All of my stuff is available for streaming on one big playlist, so no hassle and no effort required, you just press play, relax, sit back and enjoy !
