Boomkat Product Review:
A major milestone and bucket list ting from Swing Ting, serving six head-turning collaborations with Jamaican, UK and Eire vocalists and producers; Alexx A-Game, Blvk H3ro, Gemma Dunleavy, Gavsborg & Shanique Marie (Equiknoxx), and JP aka Without Understanding.
Coming nearly one year after Fact Magazine bestowed Swing Ting the honour of Best Label of 2016, the label captains Samrai and Platt comfortable take the wheel on Junction, cooking up strong flavours for all street raver between the Soup Kitchen anthem, Free Up Your Mind feat. Alex A-Game, thru a slinky link-up with Blvk H3ro on Can’t Wait, to the exquisite feminine pressure of addiction with Gemma Dunleavy, and the simmering slow jam, Contagious starring Manny’s own Fox and Tyler Daley in classic voice.
Special mention to the Equiknoxx-starring cuts, too. Shanique Marie sounds like an R&G angel on the rude-but-smooth bashment, Turn It Up, and Gavsborg’s sincere answering machine message on Gavsborg Meets JP becomes part of a jazzy cherry on the pie.
