Artist – Swing Ting ft Fox
Label – Fat City
Release Date – 18/06/12
Format – 12″ / Digital
A production outfit, club night and DJ crew, Swing Ting specialise in creating serious vibes, using their notorious sessions in the Soup Kitchen basement to showcase the finest in UK sounds, focusing on bashment, grime, funky and dancehall. Their debut as a production team came with a deadly refix of Mosca’s Tilt Shift on Fat City Recordings, followed late last year by a 12” of their own material also for the Manchester-based imprint.
June will see a second independent release for Swing Ting, with lead track Head Gone sure to provide a much needed alternate source of heat over the reliably disappointing summer months. Raucous, intense and with a spartan toughness, Fox’s sharply delivered bars rise above the dissonance to provide irresistible forward momentum. Manchester veteran Chimpo comes with a typically bombastic remix on the flip. Notoriously adept at handling vocals and no stranger to a Swing Ting party, Chimpo comes at the original with an eski style, using raw bass pulses and well crafted lead synths to a seriously potent end.
