Swarms – Early Tunes – Free Album Download


Swarms has released a free album of his early tunes, including the fantastic ‘Your Voice Shakes’ – the tune that made me a Swarms fan within a few bars of my first hearing. Lap it up…

Bluze – Exclusive – Tears I Cried

Here’s my latest tune, which I’ve written specifically for the forthcoming compilation on Altosync called ‘Synchronicity Vol 1’, a compilation of deep dubstep which I’m really looking forward to seeing come together. ‘Tears I Cried’ is deep, big dubstep with a hint of breakbeat/trip hop; I’m enjoying mixing styles and genres, a freedom that being on Altosync has given me.

I’m planning on finishing my second track for the compilation this week, so look out for another, which is so far sounding a little more on the minimal tip…

Feedback on this one, as always, is appreciated.

Swarms – Old Raves End


I’m a few days late on this, but I have to shout about it now; the album ‘Old Raves End’ by Swarms came out on the 28th March on LoDubs; a blissful journey of heart-tugging chords, hip-shaking beats and oh man it just hits the spot.

Swarms can do no wrong in my eyes (ears?) at the moment, from the opening widescreen of T-1000, through to the 4am dance grooves on Flikr of Ur Eyes, to the heartbreaking melody of Roulette, ‘Old Raves End’ doesn’t stop moving, on so many levels. By the time you reach the almost-80’s-retro of ‘Sterling’ at the end, the only thing it’s sensible to do it close your eyes and listen to it again from the beginning.

This is what electronica is supposed to sound like. This is chilled dubstep how we imagined it in our heads, but never quite heard it in real life. In my opinion, only Burial and Phaeleh have made the genre so deep and moving in this way. Damn, I’m gushing about this, but hey, I don’t do it often.

If you love deep moving dubstep or electronica, check out Swarms, right now, you owe it to your ears.
