Hard MIx is South Carolina based student and graphic designer Noah Smith. His music at first listen almost sounds like remixes of other artists, but in fact he makes all of his music first, then scours the web for acapella vocals to sample. It is said that he has used vocal snippets from the likes of Marvin Gaye, Justin Timberlake, Matha and the Vandelles and The Temptations to name a few. Noah himself has described his sound as “new age/vintage/dance”.
Hard Mix’s debut LP is due this fall on FMLY.
