Throughout 2016 Christian Smith – aka Crankdat – continued to surprise us release after release, fearlessly taking on classic records and flipping them into reinvented, ‘re-cranked’ bangers. Now the Ohio native is stepping things up this year with the announcement of a 15+ date “Gear Up” tour spanning across the United States and Canada from February to April. Representing an important milestone in the artist’s career, “Gear Up” is Crankdat’s first ever professional tour and we can’t wait to see what he’s got in store for us. If that wasn’t enough, Christian also has several high-profile collaborations in the works – most notably with Jauz, Slander and Kayzo. Preview some of these tracks below and read about Crankdat’s “Gear Up” tour from the man himself:
“The ‘Gear Up’ tour represents my preparation in becoming a full-time musician. I made the decision to pursue music full-time only a month ago and I’m still readying myself for the journey ahead. This is my first ever tour as a professional. The photo from this flyer is of my team and I in New York City this past December. We went out to see Slander and NGHTMRE perform at Playstation Theater on their “Gud Vibrations” tour and that was the night I decided I wanted to drop everything for this.” – Crankdat
