Ell Yorker was born in Jersey City, NJ on 02-12-1986 and also goes by a few other names as well. Some may call him GrimEY or DJ GrimEY. And others may call him Smilez. That’s how he came up with the name G’ Smilez. He first started DJ’ing in 2001 after falling in love with blend style mixtapes after hearing local DJs: DX, Nelly Nell, 007, E-Double, Big Tyme, Whimpy B and many more. While in high school he created a DJ team that goes by the name 201 Most Wanted which included some of the hottest up and coming DJs in Jersey City. He’s been featured on multiple mixtapes and worked with many up and coming DJs of his era. His grind later caught the attention of two very popular local party promoters, Mr. Focus & Shakim, both from Money Train Ent… After the break up of Money Train Ent, Mr. Focus (now founder of Get Focused Ent.) took G’ Smilez under the wing and taught him the ropes of promoting parties which allowed him to further promote his graphic designs skills on the flyers for each event. After taking a short break from the DJ scene he later created G’ Smilez Productions after focusing all of his attention to his true passion, making beats. Being that he knew how to play instruments made it easier for him to make beats. It came natural to him. He’s also the son of Ellsworth Anderson from the group Rhyze. So music has been in his blood from day 1. You could almost always find him doing something related to music. But his hunger doesn’t stop there! G’ Smilez is a self taught freelance graphic designer & promoter. When Myspace was the most popular social network, he was the guy to go to if you wanted a hot page.

Basically, he’s just a very talented guy. He can play a few instruments such as the Sax, Keyboard/Piano, Trumpet, Clarinet and Drums. Even if you gave him a table with an acoustic mic hooked up to it, he will play that too. He says that he enjoy making beats. It’s a way for him to vent and it’s his way of telling a story. His goals is to be able to make your spine shiver when you listen to one of his productions. Even if you don’t like his style in beat making, you’ll love his hunger for music. 99.99% of all his beats are fully original made from scratch and a thought. He have his own sound, and you can’t compare him to anyone else because he doesn’t sound like anyone other then himself. He’s in his own genre.

Why this name?
My name is Ell Yorker and I go by a few other names. Some call me GrimEY or DJ GrimEY. And others call me Smilez. That's how I came up with the name G' Smilez. Then I later created G' Smilez Productions. Some people ask me what do WhatsRealGrimEY mean. It's my slogan! What's Real is my way of saying, "What's Good/Wussup". I say What's Real because I wanna what's real. I don't want to know what's good, anything could be good. I don't want to know what's fake. I don't want to hear no fake shit. Therefore I say, "What's Real?". So if you ever see me around just say, "Yo! What's Real GrimEY!" :-)
Do you play live?
I don't play live, but I do play live instruments.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It made it so much easier to gain access to your favorite artist' music. No more getting up and going to the store to get cd's and vinyl anymore. I can just order it or download the digital copy straight to my iPod/MP3 player. But it also created a major decrease in sales due to the bootleggers finding leaks to songs, albums, mixtapes, etc..
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
I would but it depends on the stipulations of the contract. My goal is to go independent as to where I can do as I please with my music.
Band History:
Back '01-'08 I was a mixtape blend DJ. I've dropped several mixtapes and collabed with a lot of other local DJ's from my town of Jersey City. I put down deejaying because my main focus was that I wanted to become a producer. I than switched my entire musical focus on prodince and composing beats. The follow links are links to my mixtapes. I've recently uploaded them to DatPiff.com so that my fans can listen to some of m y pass projects.

Your influences?
I was born into it I guess you could say, my father had a very popular band in Jersey City back in the 80s, called "Rhyze" they recently just got back together and put out a gospel album. And my grandfather was part of the beginning stages of the Manhattans before they blew up according to family stories. That's where I get my musical skill from. But I've been into music my whole life. As a kid I played the sax in school where I learned how to read music. From there I began to teach myself how to play the piano, drums, trumpet & clarinet. My next goal is to teach myself how to play the guitar. but I can get help from my father with that being that he's one of the best bass players in my county.
Favorite spot?
Anything away from home. I love to see new things.
Equipment used:
My brain, thoughts, creativity, knowledge of music, FL Studio 9 XXL, Reason 5 & 6, My Voice & Unique personality.
