Swindle

Introducing Swindle, a multi-talented musician and producer. Hailing from South London, he took a keen interest in music at a young age, learning to play the piano aged 8 and recording his own music by 13. Taking influence from Jazz, Reggae and Soul artists (including Miles Davis, Bob Marley and Stevie Wonder), Swindle focused his energies on making predominantly Grime and Hip Hop beats whilst attending college.

From 2007-2009, Swindle produced for a host of UK underground stars including Chipmunk, Professor Green, Roll Deep and Roses Gabor, whilst making steps to break out as a producer fronting his own music. Linking up with Elijah & Skilliam as they started the Butterz label proved to be the turning point back in 2010, a move that saw him step into the limelight for the first time.

Playing sets that consist mainly of his own music, he always leaves an individual stamp on ravers with his unqiue brand of Jazz-leaning, Funk-laden Grime and Dubstep. In between that, expect exclusive sounds from Butterz label mates like Terror Danjah & Royal-T as well recent collaborations with heavy-hitters Roska and Silkie. Swindle's biggest tracks to date include Butterz staple Mood Swings, 'ignition featuring Footsie and Deep Medi club stomper Do The Jazz, all 3 of which he has had the pleasure of playing to crowds all over the world, including headline tours in both the USA and South Africa.

In 2013, Swindle released his debut full-length album Long Live The Jazz on Deep Medi, a 13-track journey through one of dance music's most creative minds and includes features from The Milk, Sam Frank, Terri Walker and Footsie. Exploring his unique style entirely at will, Long Live The Jazz not only announced the arrival of Swindle the artist but also Swindle the musician, with the album built around the notion of live performance. His debut live show in June, complete with full band, saw the album performed in it's entirety to a rapturous ovation from a captivated audience, something built on during his time playing keys on Mala's 'Mala In Cuba' tour over the last year. In short, he is quite simply one of dance music's most uniquely talented young
