International Tribe is a new weekly mix series hosted by Thris Tian.
This week’s International Tribe mix comes from Detroit pioneer Delano Smith.
Representing the sounds of the Motor City, Delano Smith has been a vital and pivotal part of the emergence of deep house in Detroit since the beginning years. Formally part of the DJ collective BeatDownSounds, with longtime peers Norm Talley and Mike “Agent X” Clark, Delano’s style has continued to showcase the best in all things deep and Detroit.
With multiple releases on the highly established Sushitech Records, Apparel Music and Third Ear Recordings, he also runs his own label Mixmode Recordings out of his hometown. For his International Tribe mix, Delano selects a range of deeply grooving and hypnotic cuts.
