As we introduce Dj Smoke to the people who aren’t familiar with him. First let’s go back a bit, and give you some history on this guy we call Dj Smoke.
Dj Smoke is from the Chicago-land area, and has been creating mixtapes since the days of creating real life “mixtapes” on cassettes. It was 1997 when Dj Smoke started recording local artists, recording, and making beats. Back then Dj Smoke (Then named: Dj Timmy T tha F*ckin Khemist among-st other colorful monikers) would begin breaking artists locally (S/O Zoo Crew, Nation Biz, Raw Material & several others) long before the days of internet. This continued for some years before Smoke let the music get away from him.
After taking some time away from music Dj Smoke emerged again in 2007. An avid music lover Dj Smoke disliked how many of the well known mixtape Dj’s were watering down the art-form by only releasing exclusives, pressing buttons, and screaming all over the songs on mixtapes.
With the intentions of bringing back the true art of mixing, blending, scratching and using clever song selections via mixtapes. Dj Smoke created his first publicly released mixtape titled “Remember 9/11, 50 Cent vs Kanye West” when both artists were to release their albums on 9/11/07. Smoke created other mixtapes, but noticed something was missing as many Djs would repeatedly play the same artists that were heard on the radio. Dj Smoke wanted to reach out to the independent market to bring different music out, and allow less known artists music to be heard.
