There is a new breed of house music, a hybrid of G-House,
Bass House and all those nearby...and leading this wave is
none other than ANGELZ.
The former Def Jam signee, who ghost-produced chart
topping beats between homework assignments as a 15-
year-old, says “Everyone, the labels, were coming at me,
asking me to replicate a track I’d made for someone else. So
I started sending them random stuff. I had started listening to
Detroit techno and Chicago house, and they were like ‘No
one can rap on these beats!’ So they stopped calling.” The
demand for conformity reminded him of the time his piano
teacher chided him for deviating from the assignment and
creating a song instead of studying one.
Testing limits comes easy to ANGELZ, who as a teen was
addicted to P2P networks like The Neptunes IRC, “It was
super illegal, I didn’t know that Diplo was also on that

channel and so was Tyler the Creator. I became a huge hip-
hop head in love with Timbaland and the Neptunes. I learned

how to sample by listening to Alchemist. I was the biggest
pirate,” says the man who adopted the DJ alias Smasha at
age 8 to label the Big beat-laden mix tapes he had started
Reinvigorated by a reclusive 2011 in Australia with a
“crummy laptop”, ANGELZ prepared for his turn in the
spotlight as Skrillex was blowing up. “I was really into
Justice, Boys Noize, Crookers, Para One,” he says. “I
realized then that there’s a market to be your own man.” It
was a game changer for ANGELZ, who at 20 already had 8
years of producing rap to his credit but no idea how to DJ or
do the “house thing”.

Embracing house wholeheartedly, ANGELZ has gone back
to one of his enduring strengths: sampling. The proof is
undeniable on his latest single “Devils” (Confession), which
he premiered in 2017 while on tour playing support for one of
his mentors, French House master, Tchami. It's a perfectly
chaotic collage of his whole sonic universe mixed with B-boy
hard house groove & it couldn't capture ANGELZ’s new
sound better.
However divergent ANGELZ’s direction may seem, his sonic
compass is clearly on point. Though still in his early 20s,
ANGELZ’s baroque beats fuse hip-hop’s raw energy and
house’s hypnotic rhythms with a psychic’s ear and a
veteran’s finesse. Beats that once left executives scratching
their heads soon had fans moving their bodies and superstar
peers praising him in their sets. The world may not think it’s
ready for ANGELZ; fortunately ANGELZ knows better.
