Janis is hell of a Frankfurter. Born and raised that is. His bold imprint
"House is OK", being run with two friends was started 1 year before "smile for a while", so there was surely some kind of inspiration coming from that end.
The S4AW guys kind of adopted the sound maniac and gave him a cozy little music studio together with all the other smiling madmen. There he sweated blood & tears onto his Prophet 600, the Moogs, the Rolands and all the other vintage music boxes. The outcome is an amazing wall of House sound, crazy in the details, epic in dancefloor quality.
