Artist: Swing Ting
Title: 100 Dances
100 Dances is the first long player produced entirely by Samrai & Platt and is the culmination of over a decade of running parties and producing tracks under the Swing Ting moniker. The debut features a wide range of regular collaborators as well as some new faces across the eleven tracks.
Manchester remains a beating heart throughout; with soulful bubblers alongside HMD, EVABEE, Fox & [ K S R ], club steppers with Lovescene and grimey ragga pressure with Trigga. Midlands favourite RTKal makes a smoothed out cameo, up-and-coming London native Thai-Chi Rose steps up on a bashment-tinged RnB bubbler whilst talented Dubliner Gemma Dunleavy makes a sultry appearance. Swing Ting’s Carribean connections are felt throughout the record but most evidently on the dancehall-ready link up with NYC’s Kiyano & the upful closer with Kingston’s Shanique Marie, of Equiknoxx fame.
Influenced by their time as DJs, promoters and producers, 100 Dances draws on the duo’s experiences throughout the Swing Ting lifespan. From early doors warmers to peak time dancefloor tackle, Samrai & Platt lay the foundation for their collaborators to shine, channeling 11 years of soundsystem navigation.
Dedicated to the staff, security and everybody who came to dance.
