Working heavily with Blame and 720 Degrees Music - this duo will certainly be suprising a lot of people over the next few months. With the current Charge release "Stay Forever" from Blame flying off the shelves and all his classic tunes regularly being played out around the world there is no stopping this guy. Being careful to not over expose his new tunes - they are rarely released prior to promo's - this guy is a very clever business man. He relentlessly still plays with dubplates/vinyl and refuses to use CD's when playing gigs - he is wisely attempting to keep the record industry alive for future generations.
Starting off his career as a Dj in the early nineties, Swift landed a job at the now defunct Lucky Spin record shop. This was very helpful, as full access to the studio next door, with in house engineer Pete Parsons (aka Voyager) was part of the package. This became a valued learning ground for the inspired artist. After a few releases on various well known labels, his hunger grew and he set up his own label Charge Recordings.
Swift describes his style as "Plain rolling" and while simple, catchy beats are a key element to his overall sound, it's the unique distorted basslines people notice. Swift, until now has worked totally alone on his productions, developing a style that is all of his own. He has produced all current releases on Charge label, and three on his other imprint Blade Recordings. He is now looking to expand the Charge empire by signing fresh new talent.
