LWE Podcast 74: Giles Smith

As one half of Secretsundaze, Giles Smith has been providing London with a soundtrack of house and techno via their bi-weekly parties for the better part of ten years.

Smith also recorded LWE’s 74th podcast, a one-take, all vinyl set encapsulating why he’s sought after around the globe.

If there is one thing Two Armadillos have shown so far in their brief history, it’s that they know how to put a groove together and “Hawthorne’s Theme” is no exception to the rule.
