News | Swindle | Peace, Love & Music | Butterz
Long-time Butterz Records signee Swindle will release his second studio album this September.
Peace Love & Music will be the first full length record released by Swindle on Butterz. His last full length album, 2007’s self-released Curriculum Vitae focused on mixing jazz and funk instrumentation with the dubstep, grime and jungle influences he’s now so well known for.
Something of a concept album, many tracks on Peace Love & Music represent a city, state or country Swindle’s visited whilst on his two year global tour, with a selection of tracks even featuring artists pushing sounds local to the corresponding location. These include credits from Mungo’s Hifi (Scotland), Nonku Phiri (South Africa) and Guerilla Speakerz (Amsterdam). Grime collabs come courtesy of Boy Better Know’s JME and Roll Deep’s Flowdan. Bristol drum & bass don TC makes an appearance for Elevator whilst English R&B and soul singer-songwriter Terri Walker is credited multiple times.
Clearly taken by the touring lifestyle, Swindle’s going back on the road next month for a 5 week spree of album launch gigs across both North and South America.
Peace Love & Music releases 25 September 2015 on Butterz Records. Until then, stream the first single London to LA ft Ash Riser below, and preorder the album now.
