Palmistry on how his father’s death inspired ‘Afterlife’ and working with SOPHIE on Rihanna material
As May with it’s delicious bank holiday bookends approaches, you’d be hard pushed to find a more weather-appropriate soundtrack that this mix SWINDLE has cooked up for Dummy. It feels like hot summer nights – moving from lazy evening kicking back to jumping around in the club at 3am. The young producer has steadily made a name a name for himself on the Grime and Funky scenes over the last couple of years, having worked with Chipmunk, Roll Deep and Asher D & Mutya Buena amongst others. He releases his ‘Airmiles EP’ on Planet Mu this Monday 26 April. It’s really bloody good. Go get it.
What sort of mix have you made?
A collection of tunes im feeling and playing at the moment really! Oh and some new of mine 🙂
