Brite Winter 2018 Smoke Screen Interview

2018 Artist Spotlight: Smoke Screen

“2017 was the come up year for Smoke Screen, a hip-hop duo based out of Cleveland. Tommy Sheridan (a.k.a. Chemist or Broken Keys) and Rodney Mynatt (Mooke) have packed more into twelve months than most groups are able to fit into their lifespans. A brand new album, two music videos and several shows later, 2018 is poised to be another year of success for the pair who are on the brink of national notoriety.

While so many acts use the selling power of nostalgia, the momentum of anniversary tours and benchmark album re-releases to keep fans hooked, Smoke Screen is relying on what they’ve learned since their initial release to earn themselves new listeners. They could throw a party to commemorate Self Educated Learning Process, released December 12, 2007, but Sheridan and Mynatt would rather move towards the future instead of dwell in the past.” -Rachel Hunt

And although the two groups (Broken Keys and Smoke Screen) create distinctly different songs, they often go hand-in-hand for Sheridan.” -Anne Nickoloff (
