Delano Smith Signing
Blue Raincoat Artists welcomes Delano Smith to the fold! Based out of Detroit, Delano is a true archetype of the Motor City DJ. His career stretches back to the late 70s where he began spinning records in the disco & post-disco era that paved the way for the emergence of techno. Many of Detroit’s most influential electronic artists credit Delano as an inspiration, including Eddie Fowlkes, Derrick May and Jeff Mills.
His high-threshold for quality is translated into both his DJ sets and productions. Tracks on the likes of Appolonia, his own Mixmode imprint, Third Ear and Sushitech, the latter of which released both his albums, have positioned Delano as a hero amongst connoisseurs of the underground.
