Hailing from Slovenia, Luka Per (aka Smooth) has quickly become one of the hottest properties on the list of upcoming breakthrough producers in the bass music scene.
After hearing a demo for ‘Under The Moon’ in 2009 (which would appear on Viper Recordings ‘Acts of Mad Men’ album), Smooth was signed to the label and later went onto release his first single ‘7th Sense’ on Viper’s sister label, Viper VIP.
2011 was a breakout year for Smooth, starting off with the massive single ‘Feel So Free’ on Viper VIP, which was followed by ‘Calling’ and Smooth’s absolutely immense remix of the Matrix & Futurebound classic ‘Strength 2 Strength’ on Viper’s ‘Worldwide 001′ album. This was followed by two tracks on Viper’s ‘Summer Slammers 2011′ album, with ‘Want It’ and ‘Alienated’ (under his darker Telekinesis alias).
Smooth followed that with his 7-track ‘Blinded By The Light’ EP in 2012, including ‘Cyber Funk’, ‘Cosmos’, ‘Blinded By The Light’ and ‘From Within’, showing the amazing range of the young producer.
The past couple years has seen Smooth release a number of hits singles such as ‘Virgo Cluster’, ‘Drone’, ‘The Sky’s Gonna Break’, along with collaborations with the likes of InsideInfo and Futurebound, as well as his darker alter ego, Telekinesis, which Smooth makes up one half of.
Smooth is always in high demand on the remix front as well, providing official remixes for smash hits such as: Matrix & Futurebound – ‘Magnetic Eyes’, Dirtyphonics – ‘No Stopping Us’, Fred V & Grafix – ‘Just A Thought’, Xilent – ‘Free Me’, Tujamo & Plastik Funk – ‘Dr. Who’, Camo & Krooked – ‘Get Dirty’, Seven Lions – ‘Below Us’, and Modestep – ‘Another Day’.
After doing these remixes, it was time for a new single of the DnB maestro. In 2015 Smooth returned with the techy edge track ‘The Black Hole’ On the flip, Smooth brought us the funk-inspired ‘Rollercoaster’.
As 2015 came to an end, Smooth still showed no sign of slowing down. He unleashed the beast ‘WTF / Revenge’, a full force dancing bass single. ‘Revenge’, with its filthy bass notes, landed and stayed in the top ten on Beatport for over 4 weeks.
