Functional Records continue their onslaught into 2007 with the latest in a very fine release from one of Bristol's leading talents; the imitable Rob Smith with his second release for the label "Loveage". Bristol based DJ, musician and remixer Rob Smith has been producing for over 12 years under various guises such as More Rockers, Henry, Louis & Smith, Jaz Klash and Smith & Mighty which over the years have seen him release a series of seminal dub heavy inspired drum and bass, dub, breaks and hip. As part of the legendary production outfit Smith & Mighty he has been responsible for production duties on early Massive Attack material as well as influencing fellow Bristol boy and drum'n'bass legend Roni Size.
On "Loveage" Mr Smith takes a classic horn and turns it out a rather special breaker for the crew. First heard on Fabric's Mix CD from Tayo, Remix duties are handed over the more than capable hands of hot producer and West Way Record�s Drum Monkeys who take Rob's original, shove a large portion of "Laaaandaaaan flava" in it's ears and deliver a rather natty little work out for the mans dem.
