House Music, It's La Cosa Nostra

Get Familiar: Swerve

Swerve. 16 Year-Old Essex-based producer. On the verge of world domination.

I happened upon one of his tracks during Kissy Sell-Out’s radio show. It was a remix of “Gold Dust”. Now, Gold Dust is obviously a Drum & Bass track, and the most famous remix for it, as you can imagine, is the Flux Pavilion Remix, a Dubstep Remix. For you non-DJs that makes sense because Drum & Bass is generally 140 BPM and Dubstep is usually 70 BPM, so you can overlay them very easily.

Swerve is not content with the easy way out. What he creates is an Electro-House masterpiece with an exorbitant amount of bounce that utilizes the contagious lyrics of the original perfectly, including some very tight sampling at the beginning.

Can’t get enough of Swerve? Check out his SIIIICK “I Remember” Remix below, and be one of the first people to like him on Facebook so you can brag to all your friends once he blows up!

    Glad somebody made that correction… Dnb is generally around 170-178 these days. Huge difference between house/ dubstep tempo
