Drake Underground, Toronto, ON, October 18
Smith's music is imbued with such satisfyingly intense bass and with such a great swing to it, dolling out grooves that you can really move to and music so eclectic, it could fit on almost any bill — be it UK bass, techno or hip-hop — as it all blends so much together so seamlessly.
Smith has a quiet confidence in what she's doing and full command of her equipment and her performance, making her set a great end to a night of great performances.
