Weiller was born in Rome, Italy, into a family with three brothers and one sister. After a few months, the entire family moved back to Atlanta, Georgia. While growing up in Atlanta, he took to playing several instruments, including, guitar, bass, flute and clarinet. Although an avid punk rock fan, he gained a deep interest in electronic music as a teenager and began producing Drum N’ Bass around 1999. He joined the drum and bass trio Evol Intent in 2000 in his hometown of Atlanta. Weiller has also produced trap, moombahton, and dubstep under the moniker Bro Safari starting in 2008.
Weiller formed the EDM group Minus Music with Jake Stanczak and Matthew Kelly, producing EDM under the name. Matthew Kelly eventually received a Doctorate in Middle Eastern Studies, and lived in Jerusalem.
He currently lives in Austin, Texas with his wife Heather, a/k/a Robotpoko, and their son Elliot Weiller. Heather is a stay at home mom who devotes her life to her family, the fans and arts and crafts.
In the beginning… Armanni Reign grew up rapping everywhere from elementary lunch room tables to high school hallways to college house parties as a hobby before realizing the worth of his gift. Back then you would prove your worth by progressing from cyphas to battles, which is what he did to make a name for himself. He started in small competitions and eventually worked his way on to radio spots. After spending three continuous months as Philly 103.9FM’s ‘Cypha’ champion, MC Armanni decided he needed a change. Not seeing any longevity in the Battle Circuit had motivated Armanni to switch things up.
His introduction to drum and bass was an experience shared by many first timers- Sutpens’ Jungle, February 2000. His first mixtape was “DJ SS live at Sutpen’s Jungle” on which the vocal skills of MC Skibadee and MC Foxy gave Armanni insight to the lyrical potential of Drum and Bass. Citing MC Skibadee as one of his main influences at the time, Armanni developed a distinctly powerful and diverse style of lyrical delivery. It garnered respect amongst his peers as well as many of the top Drum and Bass MCs and DJs in the World. Staying true to his hip hop roots, Armanni delivers bounce, flavor and lyrical wizardry.
SMLE is a live electronic production duo composed of childhood friends who were fortunate enough to have studied and grown up around music their entire lives.

Whether its their nostalgia-inducing remixes or the fresh innovative sounds of their original tunes, SMLE music can only justifiably be defined by its ethereal splendor and its ability to resonate with the auras of the human body.
