“This project has consumed my whole life over the last year and half and I'm over the moon to finally be able to share it! Deep Medi, Butterz #LongLiveTheJazz”. The album delves into the increasingly blurred sounds of grime, dubstep, and bass music alongside musical influences from artists such as George Clinton, Parliament Funkadelic and Roy Ayers. Purple synths, colourful vocoder work (think Joker and Redinho) and growling basslines litter the album, with guest spots and collaborations from Nadia Suliman & Footsie, The Milk, Terri Walker and Sam Frank sitting alongside Swindle’s solo tracks. Even the toughest beats on the album are placed side by side by delicate touches of funk and soul.
Swindle’s rise to fame began as his releases on Planet Mu and his own Swindle Productions gained attention from Elijah & Skilliam, who began to feature his music regularly on their Rinse FM radio show. A release on Butterz followed shortly after, leading to his DEEP MEDi release ‘Do The Jazz’.
Having now produced tracks for the likes of Roll Deep, Chipmunk, Professor Green and Asher D, co-producing with Toddla T and Silkie and featuring on the Amy Winehouse ‘Back To Black’ tribute compilation, Swindle’s also a regular on the DJ and radio circuit, playing in clubs up and down the UK, Europe, America and South Africa whilst holding up a regular slot on Rinse FM. The album is launched with Swindle’s debut live show at Fire in June.
