Brownswood Recordings and Deep Medi are proud to announce the release of Swindle’s “Walter’s Call EP”, to be available on 12″ vinyl.
Swindle – one of the most exciting, charismatic young producers coming out of the UK – received outstanding reviews last year in response to his album “Long Live The Jazz” where, according to XLR8R, “the South Londoner… settled into a brightly embellished, jazz-inflected style of dubstep”. He also played piano for the Mala in Cuba Live shows in 2012/13, a statement for his ability to waver between styles and genres impeccably. As well as this, Swindle holds a key role in the Butterz label and Collective, and has produced for the likes of Roll Deep and Footsie. Now well known for his dynamic live shows, Swindle’s sound is truly unique and constantly developing.
With ‘Walter’s Call’, Swindle dives straight in at the deep end with sirens and footwork inspired drums, gradually building themes of energetic brass brilliance into the mix.Seamlessly produced, this sets the EP off to a blazing start, introducing the influences of early 20th century chaotic jazz, which run throughout.
‘Summer Fruits’ is a track that begins with a gentle and disarming piano tune, swiftly developing into a lively melodic combination of well delivered vocal samples and prevailing brass rhythms. It gets your feet moving and renders the feeling of an easy sunny afternoon, with smooth harmonious flows combined with bursts of energetic flare resonating his influences.
Disjointed classic house piano chords kick off ‘Smash N Grab’, which again carries Swindle’s distinctive bouncing sound. At one point calm, then at the next in full swing, it’s just as much of a roller coaster as the rest of this smashing EP.
