Chris Smith a.k.a. Shiny Objects chats running OM Records, Running Venues & Session Musicians


Christopher Smith a.k.a. Shiny Objects releases ‘Intermittent Soul’ on October 4th on Om Records. The album is the second of a two-part project (following ‘Intermittent Dreams’) showcasing the highly respected producer’s versatile, deep house sound. This ambitious project will land as a pre-curser to the 25th anniversary of Om Records, the label founded by Christopher Smith in San Francisco in 1995.

Christopher Smith remains a key figure in San Francisco’s underground electronic music scene. He has released over 100 tracks and remixes as Shiny Objects, and as a DJ, brought his deep, techy grooves and a touch of psychedelia as far afield as Ibiza, Tokyo and Brazil. He was also a founding member of the Burning Man camp, Disco Knights and the playa’s influence weaves its way through his music. He is also a founding partner of San Francisco’s globally respected nightclubs, Monarch and The Great Northern and continues on his mission to bring the best purveyors of underground, electronic music to the US west coast.

I chat to Chris about Shiny Objects, OM Records and running venues in San Francisco. I also asked him 5 things every producer needs to know and as part of that, we chatted about session musicians. You can listen to below or Apple PodcastsSpotifyGoogle Podcast and more via Anchor.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
