Smith & Pledger are London-based producer/DJ's Olie Smith & Mark Pledger. Olie and Mark met at university in 2000 and soon set up a studio together. Since then a series of high profile solo releases and remixes have cemented the duo's position as one of most exciting new dance music talents in the UK.
Smith & Pledger's style is best categorized as classy and melodic, leading Mixmag to describe them as "the best thing happen in trance this year". Their early releases such as "Believe" and "Forever" became global club anthems for A-list DJ's such as Paul Oakenfold, Ferry Corsten, Armin Van Buuren, Above & Beyond and Markus Schulz. More recent releases such as the White/Black EP, Nothern Lights, Hijack (as Aspekt) and their remix of Luminary - "Amsterdam" have all been equally well received.
Olie and Mark have also collaborated successfully in the studio with former Gatecrasher resident DJ Matt Hardwick. Their first production together, "Day One", was hailed by DJ Magazine as the "instrumental trancer of the year" and earned widespread support from the world's leading DJ's, including Tiesto and Paul Van Dyk. "Connected", the follow-up single, proved just as popular, picking up a "Record of the Week" award on Armin Van Buuren's radio show and earning multiple Radio 1 Specialist Dance plays.
