Swing Ting gets it right every time….their parties have that great spontaneous ‘dance’ vibe with atmosphere meter consistently set to live-o. A heady mix of ‘SOUL, RAP, RAGGA, RUFF HOUSE, GARAGE, GRIME. JUNGLE’ the nights never feel plastic, overly planned or burnt out….probably aided by the fact that head honchos Samrai & Platt are well-educated DJs who simply love what they do. Take a listen at that Tilt Shift remix for yourself and you’ll know what I mean!
Anyways, they hold their parties in, wait for it, a Chinese karaoke joint with thrones (!!) lining the walls and a Jack Russell called Baby GaGa. If you’re a Manchester native and you haven’t ventured out to Swing Ting then you better buck your ideas up, and for the London heads both Samrai & Platt will be in attendance on 15th July at the one and only WIFEY.
The mix was made by the Swing Ting boys for legendary record label (and Manchester record shop R.I.P.) Fat City who recently released the Mosca 12″ ‘Tilt Shift’, and subsequently the Swing Ting remix earlier this month. The tracklisting speaks for itself…go on…have a go.
