Twin brothers Kendrick and Sherwyn Nicholls , otherwise known as Two Fresh, have gained some serious momentum over the years. Though they’ve received endorsements from many industry heavyweights, it is their stellar catalogue of tunes that keeps audiences coming back for more. With instrumental hip hop as the backbone of their output, Two Fresh’s influences cover a broad spectrum and though it makes it hard to pin their sound into one genre, it is the way they craft their beats that make it all their own. Armed with vibrant synths and bass-driven beats, the boys captured the warm vibes of summer with the extended player Blimpus.

Hailing from New Jersey, Dubloadz represents the next wave of heavy Dubstep producers. Call it “Swamp”, call it “Ridddim”, whatever you call it, you can’t deny the damage it does on a major system. This five track EP contains many tracks that got heavy rotation on the recent Smog City Tour, and you might even recognize a few familiar voices in the samples.
Introducing a new-comer to SMOG Records, we present the 19 year old producer TWINE. Based in Florida, he has been on a rampage with recent releases on Firepower and Rottun. His latest offering “Killing Machine” is a beast of an EP with five tracks spanning a variety of styles and sounds.
Since the early 90′s 6Blocc (aka R.A.W. aka BBoy3000) has been running the warehouse scene through the sounds of Hip Hop, Rave, Jungle, Drum & Bass, Dubstep, and most recently Footwork – all of which can be heard in his latest offering for SMOG titled “Bass Truck”. This EP runs the full spectrum of the hardcore continuum that is dripping in Los Angeles style. Check it out!
