Smith has always stood out as one of the world’s leading exponents of inventive, diverse techno. His imprint Tronic currently stands as one of the world’s Top 5 selling techno labels and his new album promises to continue the label’s ever-evolving musical journey.

Christian Smith is no stranger to creating supreme, dancefloor orientated albums. His previous  LPs – “Omakase” (2013) and “Director’s Cut (2010) were both critically acclaimed. Both as a DJ and producer, he is always innovative and bold, a leader not a follower.

In addition to his own solo tracks, his new album features collaborations with Wehbba (Christian’s friend and regular collaborator), New York based house music legend Cevin Fisher, plus long-time studio collaborator John Selway (of Smith & Selway fame), along with Christian’s childhood friend, hip-hop artist Arcturus Ra.

“Stranger Than Paradise” will be unveiled first as four singles, released in weekly intervals through the month of October, with the full album release following in the first week of November on both 12” vinyl and digital formats. Remix EPs will be released in December.
