Swim the Shine launches his new record label and audio-visual arts platform Gun Raven, with the ‘Stealth Mode’ EP: a darkly atmospheric, deep techno cut backed up with remixes from Timo Maas.
Swim the Shine is a DJ, VJ and an electronic music producer from Budapest, Hungary. He has played venues in London, Barcelona, Budapest, Montreal, Paris, Freiburg, Porto, Berlin as a DJ or a VJ... but his main mojo shaker is the real-time combination of interactive visuals with melodic techno and progressive house.
Career highlights include playing drums at the opening ceremonies of the London Olympics in 2012 (under the guidance of Rick Smith of Underworld and Danny Boyle) and being a finalist of the Moscow Circle of Light VJ competition. His current focus is, building a solo audio-visual performance and developing his new label into a platform for audio-visual art.
Launching the label is this EP, which was written by him on a plane to Moscow in 2017, on his way to the Circle of Light VJing competition. The expression, ‘stealth mode’, was a running joke with somebody he used to know there, hence the original title was ‘Stealth Mode Moscow’. But a few years have passed… and a lot has changed.
The track is a dark, hypnotic, deep techno cut, packed full of creeping synths and warped industrial tones, and comes back up with remixes from Timo Maas, who delivers two reinterpretations.
