Streets Made Innovators (S.M.I.) are an English production duo composed of Leon Vandol and James Carn ‘Carnage’ . The duo are from London and were formed in 2012 after being introduced by a mutual friend.
With Vandol already producing alone under S.M.I, and Carnage gigging as a session guitarist, they were both looking for the next piece of the puzzle in their music careers. They then found a natural energy in the studio, where the current incarnation of S.M.I was born.
The duo's shared appreciation of Jazz and Soul, aswell as Carnage’s love for funk and rock music, combines with Vandol’s established minimalist Grime beats to form S.M.I’s distinct sound today.
