DJ Swisha Sweet has been a pioneer of the LA Booty Bounce and Jersey Club scenes for a while now. A member of Club Jersey, his online DJ sets and constant stream of new music have brought him into the limelight of LA club world. Last week he reached 1,000 Soundcloud followers and graced us with a nasty E.P. through One Eight Hundred to celebrate.
The EP features Ase Manual, Alfred English, GRRL, DJ W3C and Kush Jones, which is pretty stacked for just five songs. The opening track, “Trap House Stalkin ft. Ase Manual” is a classic “booty bounce club banger,” in his words.Making tasteful Jersey Club in 2015 requires walking a very fine line between the genre’s battle dance origins and its highly fashionable and polished current status. Swisha Sweet is a smart dude, and kills this dynamic with this song that could induce violent up-down ass-tastic action, but also is clean as hell. It’s a Vega- ready track that Jayhood and Tameil could be proud of.
The EP comes in hot, but closes on a whole other goddamn level. The final track, “Carbine ft. Alfred English” is disgusting, but mad sexy. I showed it to a friend and she said “this makes me feel like I am drinking a piña colada and puked it up all over myself… but in a good way.” And, yeah, she was right. The grime vocals, dog barks and future club bass make the track viscous. I don’t know what else to say. Listen to it.
Swisha Sweet is playing along side DJ Sliink, Joaquin Bartra and Gianni Lee at ClubIHC 02/20 at The Lash Pop-Up.
When I talked Swisha Sweet about this show, he confessed that Sliink is his idol, which should make the show pretty insane. This makes a lot of sense, but what Swisha Sweet is bringing to the club world is something clearly ahead of it’s time.
Download the EP and make sure to catch him at Club IHC. Tickets here.
