Five Tracks: Swales

The latest sonic offering to come from Manchester based production talent Swales arrives in the form of his new The Night EP, which alongside three originals also features a remix from UK house specialist Josh Butler.

The release comes via Make You Move Records, a label which has seen previous appearances from names like Timmy P, Devstar, and James Dexter. It also adds to Swales existing catalogue of work, which already includes outings for Another Rhythm, Mutombo Records, and Polydor Records.

We welcome him to our Five Tracks series this month, where he highlights a bunch of older house tunes from Alfredo, Sharam, House of Jazz, Andronicus, and others. Get the full list below, including words from Swales himself.

DJ’s Rule – Get Into The Music (Serious Mix)
Label: Hi-Bias Records

Hi-Bias were responsible for some great Italo house gems in the early 90’s. This is one my favourites on the label, it oozes quality. A very versatile track which would fit right in the club or sit down parties alike.

Alfredo – Inspiration (Pacha Vocal Mix)
Label: Olympic Recordings

Euphoric terrace vibes on this belter by Alfredo. I’m a real sucker for a piano and vocal combo and oh boy does this do it well. I dare you not to sing along (I do every time I spin it!).

House of Jazz – Feel It
Label: Lazyboy Records

I can’t get enough of this one by House of Jazz. It’s a real sophisticated house jam. Give it a whirl and you’ll see what I mean! I’ve spent a lot of time digging and buying vinyl online over lockdown, this is one of the gems that’s made it’s way into my collection.

Andronicus – Make You Whole
Label: Ffrreedom

When they say the 90’s were the golden era for house music, this track definitely supports the claim. Dance floor hedonism awaits for those lucky enough to hear this in the club, I dream of it daily!

Deep Dish Presents Prana – The Dream (Sharam’s Deep Dish Dreamscape)

Another great underground label of the 90’s, Tribal America had a handful of outstanding tracks that are amongst some of my favourites. They stir fond memories of hugging your pals in clubs – soon may it return.
