Hi friends….my third studio album, Magic Carpet Ride, is on the loose. Albums are always special to me because unlike a club banger or EP of singles, an album is a cohesive collection of work that flows from end to end (and meant to be listened to that way) around a fun idea.
Like my previous two albums, there’s a lot of ghetto funk and hip hop influence wrapped up with an arsenal of current EDM and Bass heavy sounds. So kick back in your favorite lawn chair, bust it out buy the pool, or put it on repeat for that road trip…most of all, have fun. Oh, and thanks for all your support over the years;)

Magic Carpet Ride is a journey through the vast ocean of influences that have shaped Wes Smith’s party rockin’ audio landscape. I’m Trippin’ kicks off the ride with a taste of Summertime funk. Yabadabbadoo and Rock the Jam continue the low end hustle and drop you off at the upbeat vocals of Body Move. All About The Funk and Feels Good bring the four to the floor vibes pushing you squarely into the breakbeat rhythms on Back Again. Before you surface, the ragga vibe on Murdera sends you on one more deep dive before blazing out on Down Town.
