JM de Frias
Born in Chicago and raised on Detroit's West side, Delano Smith represents one of the last of a rare group of Detroits first house DJs. Perhaps it was the juvenile absorption of the sights and sounds around him during his first 5 years in the Windy City coupled with his experience during the new DJ craze of his high school years in Detroit that influenced Delano the most or maybe it is simply that enigmatic link between music people in Chicago and Detroit, known to insiders as the I94 Connection. Regardless of the reason for his natural ear for the deep and groovy, Delano can lay claim to a legacy that most Detroit jocks cannot. When performing outside of his native city, Delano's unique sets highlight the fact that his skills were forged in an era before the rigid lines of house and techno genres appeared.
The “fantastic conundrum” of In Flagranti is a disco symphony created by Alex Gloor and Sasa Crnobrnja. Inspired by their love of the pioneering Cosmic dance scene that emerged from 80s Italy and an eclectic bag of genres including “Funk, Rock, Punk, Afro, Electronica, House, Reggae, Kraut, Classic, Blues and Hillbilly”, the pair have been working together for the past decade, creating joyful and mind-bending sounds.
