New Residents join Swing Ting + Sep Dance Info

 MURLO and JOEY B will be joining the Swing Ting crew as rotational residents..


 Murlo's Swing Ting debut back in March was one of the most lively - and well-received - moments we've ever had with vibes being catalysed left, right and centre (download the live recording here).
Check his Soundcloud for more bashy / funky / soca-ry goodness including a few freebies.

Joey B

Joey B aka Dirty Sprite is a long time friend and favourite of Swing Ting.  Co-promoter / selector at Manchester's best bashment; HOTMILK.  An exceptionally versatile DJ; listen out for him juggling dancehall, screwing dirty south, rinsing niche as well as running old-time roots and soul at future dances.

Our September Splash will feature our very own 'Dr Tropical' - badman producer/DJ MURLO making a welcome return to the Kitchen, his first on residential duty, 'longside Samrai, Platt and Fox.

The Eyes - Harder (Official Video)


Two good friends of Swing Ting; Chimpo and Fox aka 'The Eyes' drop the first taste of their much anticipated album due for release later this year on Manchester's Estate Recordings.

A stripped production featuring an acoustic guitar and whistling could have been a risky venture, but on 'Harder' Fox's moving lament and Chimpo's restraint combine to form something undeniably soulful, poignant and powerful.  We've loved this one since it first surfaced and it's evident to see why Dub Phizix and Loefah have been spinning it in their sets all year.  But don't just take our word for it, give it a listen for yourself...

Harder / Come Again featuring Strategy is available digitally on 20th August 2012
