Besides my other musical projects , i established "Smooth" back in 2006 to seperate the progressive and Dubtechno flavoured output from my other musical projects. Meanwhile, Smooth has become a project for research in Dubtechno, Deep House, Garage House, UK House and Progressive, as these styles have been important influences over the bygone years. Early Drum&Bass and 2-Step are also giving me lots of inspirations till the the presents days.

My intention is to fuse elements and phrases of these different styles, to create a special kind of flow and to step beyond musical borders. I love to fuse lively pads with dubby chords and elements of Techno, Trance, Progressive Trance and House. I started producing back in 1996, and since that time, i tried many electronic musical genres. To melt the best of all those genres into one is an exciting experience. I use primary hardware in comnination with some certain software.

Beside producing, mastering, sound design and graphic design, i operate the non-commercial audio netlabel CYAN in cooperation with Jaja. If you like as many different electronic music genres as i do and if you are curious about musical fusions, expect to find further unique releases there, released free under a creative commons license.

Since 1999 i am fascinated by designing sounds, presets and patches for hardware and software synthesizers. On my productions, i mostly use own sounds and presets. I want to share some of these sounds and presets with you. The patches and sounds are available for different formats, just click one of the buttons below to download.
