Originally conceived as a Big Beat-project, inspired by classic producer-/DJ-icons as well as by Soul/Funk/Jazz and orchestral hit songs, Krotil starts to create his own pop-vision. During his studies in London, he is participating in international remix competitions on Indaba Music and able to win several competitions, prizes and releases of his tracks including works for Jennifer Hudson, Enrique Iglesias, Kongos, AJR, Magic Man, Umphrey’s McGee, Ingenia & !amsu among many others. Consequently he was rewarded with the "Remixer of the Year - 2015" award from the 800 000 people Indaba Music community.
The journey is the destination: SMP’s remixes are a virtuous and cutting-edge ride through pop history and culture, taking to the road retro sounds and modern and electronic production standards. The devil is in the detail: While sounding conventional and radio-friendly, the songs are packed with musical references and fond details that nowadays seem to go missing. Soul, Funk & Rock serve only as starting point: atmospheric strings, piano and brass arrangements ease the electronic dance and sound production from time to time. They all belong to the “Soulmate”-reservoir of his musical journey.
