Smote, aka Tomas Banary, the talented Slovakian Drum & Bass producer. Influenced by his father’s musical knowledge he learnt to play the piano as a child and later played guitar in a punk band by the name of ‘Los Ratones Paranoicos’. He eventually discovered electronic music and hasn’t looked back since. In 1999 he started to produce electronic music, mostly triphop, and upon listening to Drum & Bass he decided this was his musical future. In summer 2003 he established his own agency ‘Reverse’ to promote Drum & Bass music and to support young music talents in Slovakia.
