Smoke in the Machine-EP – Original Art by Taj
About the album
Smoke in the Machine is finally here after a few years
apart from “Moving Mirrors” released 2012.
The album was recorded not too long after Magnanimity in Cumberland, BC while Smoky was going to College
for his plumbling program in Cambell River.
DJ A.I. laced him with a melodic assortment of dope instrumentals with banging bass and deep feelings to grab your attention and pull you in.
The album was mixed by both DJ A.I on tracks 1 & 6 and
Smoky on the rest of the tracks.
The songs mean a lot to Smoky and he feels that this is his best material to date. There is a lot of amazing memories attached to the tracks, chilling with the other artists who feature on the album who were all close friends to me.
For the final steps Marty from Victoria did the
mastering and arrangement to take you on a musical journey from start to finish.
Taj who is Smoky’s younger brother helped to
design the original art for the cover then Philivix helped
for the final copy.
Get ready for the ride of your life once
you hit play and sit back 😉
New track up Ft. Danni & Dizzy

It has been over 3 years now since Smoky’s last release: Moving Mirrors (2012). During this time he has progressed a lot as an artist, manager and business man for his label (Ocean Fresh Productions). This has been his main focus lately but he still does his own music when he can find the time in his busy schedule.
Back in 2008 – 2010 he was living in the Comox Valley and helped to put together a local hip-hop movement called Ancient Principals. During these few years he had a lot of fun and good times putting together events with B3, Beyond and Frantic Peace. This was a time of developing his own unique sound and finding his inner talents. During this time he was always working with other artists and collaborating with as many people as he could. Smoky enjoyed bringing different emcees and vocalists together to make music at his studio setup in Cumberland.
Because of financial issues he didn’t have the ability to purchase many beats so he got into using promotional ones just for practice and to learn how to properly record/mix. The tracks added up fast and soon he had a large collection put together from many different producers and artists. This collection was put aside for a while and a few years later he decided that he should compile them all into an album that could be listened to and enjoyed forever. Finally this year he was able to get them all mastered and finished for everyone.
The project has a lot of emotion and memories from him and the AP crew. It was an important time of his life as an artist and he wanted to be able to share that with everyone in a professional way. The album is 32 tracks all together and is compiled into a double disc format which will be free for everyone and available to download off Smoky’s bandcamp May 29th.
The project features: Mister Luke O’Hearn, Tobes, Lil Biggins, Silas Crowe, Danni Lee, B3, Dizzy D, Jayrexx, Young Cap, Lucky7, Skwez, The Arsenist, Juanita, Christina, C-Rex, Lynden, Four & Live-In Fantasy Mixing by: DJ-Moves, Mister Luke O-Hearn & Smoky Mastering by: Basskraft-studio
