Interview by Ian Stratton:
Bad ass DJ? Check. Innovative hyphy producer? Check. Original, unfettered, unfazed, off the chain, on the ball, off the wall, on point, off kilter, unchanged and unchained? Check. Meet Smasheltooth, a no-excuses, self-titled “Punk-Rock Bitch” who rips down walls and social barriers with ease...
Euphoric: Ashley, it is plain to see that you’ve been influenced heavily by the bay area’s hip hop scene. Tell us a little bit how you got into that, and how that eventually translated into your current style as a DJ/Producer.
Smasheltooth: The first albums I remember listening to were Bobby Brown’s “Don’t Be Cruel” and Too Short’s “Too Short in the House” when I was in the second grade (1990). Literally their songs moved me and along with The Temptations and all the Motown my dad listened to, I was always a white girl listening to black people’s music.
