Charles Smith AKA ‘The Earthman’ was given a sampler before his umbilical was cut.
Sampling anything from old soul, TV shows and films to the dripping of his bathroom tap. He’s studied the Hip hop genre inside out from the 80’s to the present day, from the east and west US to UK shores, from Japanese instrumentals to Australian outback rappers.
His influences certainly don’t stop at Hip hop, whether it be old school jungle and hardcore or an array of live acts.
Charles says “I’m old school at heart” but when experiencing his music you can tell he embraces the modern.
Charles knows his instrument inside out, using every piece of software and hardware he can get his hands on, one track will never sound the same as the last.
His experience as a radio producer, sound engineer and music teacher only fuel his bloodthirsty creative drive.
