Snailrider: aka MorrisKode (Kali Smith) found his passion for electronic music one late night back in 96. Two years later he bought his first pair of 1200’s and started working on his craft. Going by the name Kaliflower he mastered the art of house / breaks and dabbling in idm/glitch, jungle, triphop and downtemp. He started mixing and producing a minimal glitchy techno in 2004 and created a groove to call his own. Using minimal techno as a back drop, he drops and manipulates sounds, samples and glitches, while creating a groovy funk with a snailish bass heavy rhythm for the crowd to enjoy. Kali has played a number of parties and clubs from Victoria to Montreal, while successfully holding down club nights in Whistler and Vancouver. He has played alongside great artist like Sammy Dee, Alexander Robotnik, Detroit Grand Pubahs, Kool Keith, Safety Scissors, Pan Pot, Exercise One, Funkstorung, Lexancuplt, The Mole of Soul, Lowfish, Solvent, Hrdvision, Konrad Black and many more.
On the production side of things, Kali has teamed up with an old friend Jonathan DeRouchie to form a production called STANDARDMETHOD. Jonathan loves his elektron synths working a machinedrum, monomachine and sidstation, acid bass lines, warm pads, glitches while Kali craves a little glitch and a lot of bass, working a machinedrum, evolver, mopho, and ableton live all these machines are put together to create a snailed down glitchy acid rolling techno.
