Following releases on E-Beamz, Natural Sciences, and Who’s Susan, the German-based DJ Swagger returns to Nerang after appearing on the label’s ‘Freaky Friends Volume 1’ compilation earlier this year. Merging influences from dance mania through to UK garage, ‘Bass Hysteria’ sees him demonstrating his production skills.
‘Atomic Fear’ galvanises the energy of early DJ Funk, with air raid sirens and glitched out hi-hats punctuated throughout, while ‘Drybones’ nods towards early dubstep and UK flavours, with gurgling basslines and skippy drums bubbling throughout as occasional glimmers of synth work.
‘Trail of Destruction’ aims to encapsulate golden age electro, with effected vocals, percussion, and basslines coming together for a late-night groover. ‘Noseblunt’ is a fast-paced track aimed for fog-filled dancefloors, wrapping up the 11th release on a label pushing diverse sounds from artists around the world.
DJ Swagger ‘Bass Hysteria’ lands on Nerang Recordings in March 2021.
