A paragon is “a person or thing regarded as a perfect example of a particular quality.” If we are talking about dark marauding 170 BPM sound weapons, Tom Smit epitomises this sound, having turned heads in the underground since 2012 with his signature brand of moody and chaotic Drum & Bass.
Lurking predominantly in the shadows, his trademark style and refusal to follow trends has nevertheless seen him release on respected imprints and, as of 2015, hold down a regular show on esteemed London station Rude FM (rudefm.com
) and a resident spot at Tech Itch Recordings events.
Paragon is not your average Drum & Bass producer, with his 2018 debut album 'Noisypieceofshit' seeing him explore the boundaries of both his sound and the genre, gaining support from none other than Justin Broadrick of Napalm Death / Godflesh / Tech Level 2 fame.
His second album lands on Tech Itch Recordings and is a collaborative affair featuring several label regulars.
