Kelly Smash first discovered jungle music in 1998 when she randomly picked up the Toasted EP from the local record shop (Big UP Gopher Sounds) in Flagstaff, AZ. Growing up on punk, dancehall, and hip-hop she immediately fell in love with this new sound. Kelly moved to San Diego in 2001 where she had access to turntables and taught herself how to spin the music she found back in 98. Kyzer Soze, Don Ryan, Kelly Smash, Drone (R.I.P.), Scourge, Dave, & Daniel (Jungle Riddim) formed the Mashin’ Kru and started playing/throwing underground jungle shows throughout SD area. Smash moved up to Oakland and joined forces with Kingz of Jungle & long time homie Kip Killagain. Kelly moved back to Kingz home based town of Flagstaff, AZ in 2011 & is still tearin’ the roof off any venue she smashes. If you gwan test this rudegirl make sure to bring your motherfuckin’ vinyl.
