Having grown up in South Africa on a staple diet of Dire Straits, Tina Turner & Bryan Adams, Digby Smith had to find his own way musically. Playing in bands for many years, and having spent the best part of a decade as an engineer in landmark London studios, he is known as a deft practitioner of analogue sound. 

An Obsessive vinyl collector across genres, he is fast becoming known for his esoteric sets and bold selection. Alex & Digby’s experimental imprint FLASH AS A RAT is a vent of continual eccentricity, and has garnered wide scale underground support. After the tragic passing of his brother Alex, Digby continues the legacy they built together.
