Jump Smokers: From underground to mainstream ‘Kings’

Jump_smokers Remixers/producers The Jump Smokers first gained recognition when their ‘Chris Brown should get his ass kicked‘ track went viral online and invaded the club scene last Spring. The Chicago-based foursome (aka Roman, Reydeon, V-Skratch and Johnny Digital) have parlayed that initial interest into a successful remix operation, churning out pop-friendly chart-topping dance remixes for some of the top names in the Biz – Rihanna, Beyonce, Pitbull, Mariah Carey and more.

Now the men behind the mix step out in front, as their electro-infused debut album ‘Kings of the Dancefloor’ drops today. (It is now available in iTunes.)

The guys were kind enough to take some time to talk up their whirlwind journey with SoundCheck. Get the complete Q&A after the jump.
