Suggestion to young producers of the “beats” variety (if that’s what we’re still calling it): focus on making original, ambitious music of your own instead of fighting for likes and plays with productions/remixes/edits that sound like copies of copies. Follow the example set by young American producer SWARVY and his amazing new record called “Scotch” out now on Feelin Music.
Ok, I must admit the title was the first to grab my attention as I am quite the Scotch aficionado. But really, I was into this record right from the very first drum licks and warm keys. Nowadays, hearing live musicians on project like these is such a rare thing that when it happens you ears instantly perk up. “Swarvy links with bassist Jerry Thompson III and band mate Ryan McKenney, his first official release of original, sample-free music. Channeling the grooves and moods of 70s jazz and funk, Swarvy shapes the raw instrumentation with modern production techniques to make an album that sounds distantly familiar, yet still new and unique at the same time.”
