Smoke Screen 15 Year Anniversary Show Recap

Huge thanks to everyone that came out to our 15 Year Anniversary Show at Grog Shop last Friday. So much love to DJ Geauga Lake, Smith Taylor and Mourning [A] BLKstar for killing their sets. We sold out of our Limited Shirt Collection and packed the room. Big thanks to The Grog for everything over the years and we couldn’t have made this past 15 Years what it was without everyone’s support, so thank you. This clip features the track ‘Graveyard Shift’ from our album “Ice Cold Water”.

Smoke Screen – 2021

In 2021 we switched it up yet again. We didn’t perform any live shows as Smoke Screen, but we teamed up and played B2B DJ sets throughout the year. It was the first year that we didn’t officially release any music so this highlight clip features the previously unreleased song ‘Now & Later’ produced by Broken Keys. Thanks for taking this journey through the last 15 years with us. We’re at the Grog Shop tonight with DJ Geauga Lake, Smith Taylor and Mourning [A] BLKstar for the Anniversary Show!

Smoke Screen – 2020

In 2020 we once again played the Brite Winter Fest main stage as Smoke Screen, along with Broken Keys and Mooke Da God solo performances on different stages throughout the night for a total of 56 songs over three sets. That summer we supplied a feature on the Scenic Route track ‘Smooth Ways’. Later on in the year we teamed up in a different way. We joined forces for the Mooke Da God solo album “Twenty Thirty” which was entirely produced by Broken Keys. It included the singles ‘Bubble Tea’ and ‘C’mon Give Thanks’ which both had music videos by Broken Keys and Zoe Mountain. This clip features the song ‘Frosted Tips’ from “Twenty Thirty”.

Smoke Screen – 2019

2019 was another productive one for us. We played a lot of shows and that year we got our first TV sync placements. The Mooke Da God song ‘Club Atlantis’ featured prominently on an episode of the Freeform Network show Grown-Ish, while the Broken Keys song ‘In Other Words’ was featured on the FX Network show Mayans MC. The sole Smoke Screen release that year was a feature on the Deity produced song ‘5 Lifetimes’ which also featured 2ssaint, Case Barge and Tino Cash. Check out the 2019 clip featuring ‘5 Lifetimes’.

In 2018 we kicked the year off by playing the main stage at Brite Winter Fest. Soon after that we dropped the Connor Musarra produced single ‘Miata’ after a trip out to LA. While out in LA we also recorded a track called ‘Honolulu’ and a cover version of the 311 song ‘I’ll Be Here A While’, both of which were produced by RAF. Check out the highlight clip featuring ‘Miata’.

Smoke Screen – 2017

2017 was a return to form for us as a group. That year being the 10 Year Anniversary of our first release, we hit the studio and set out to release a new project. The result was our 3rd full length album, the 10 track offering “Return To The Sun”. It featured the single ‘Breakbeats And Bass’ which was paired with a Turnstyle Films music video and cover art by Chad Fedorovich. We did countless shows, radio interviews and more throughout the year to support the release. This highlight clip features the “Return” track ‘The Show’ produced by Connor Musarra.
