South London’s Swindle, a multi-talented musician, producer and DJ will be arriving in South Africa for shows in Johannesburg and Cape Town on the 17 and 19 May. We’re giving away three double tickets for each city, read on to win!



Swindle’s reputation as one of the top young prospects shaping the future of underground music in the UK has been built through his enthralling DJ sets and a stack of hit releases on the Butterz and Deep Medhi labels as well as collaborations with heavy hitters Roska and Silkie. The underground smash ‘Airmiles’ (released on Planet Mu) made a big impact on the club scene and pushed him to the forefront as a DJ at the same time.

Taking influence from Jazz, reggae and soul artists (including Miles Davis, Bob Marley and Stevie Wonder), Swindle focused his energies on making predominantly grime and hip hop beats whilst attending college. From 2007-2009 he produced for the who’s who of the UK underground like Chipmunk, Professor Green, Asher D, Roll Deep and Roses Gabor, while making steps to break out as a producer fronting his own music after long being in the shadow of the massive artists he was working with. Linking up with Elijah & Skilliam as they started the Butterz label proved to be the turning point in 2010, as they pushed him to finally make the leap into the limelight. Playing sets that consist mainly of his own music, Swindle always leaves an individual stamp wherever he plays with his brand of jazzy grime, dubstep and UK funky.

Travelling to South Africa to play my music is like a dream for me! I believe the root to the grooves I pledge allegiance to are in the earth of Africa and I’m finally on my way!
