SWVN – Epimetheus

#NewMusic from Glasgow, Scotland

We return to an artist who thoroughly deserved a place on our Best of 2017 list. South African born MC SWVN delivers his verses with more than a subtle hint of the accent of the city he now resides in – Glasgow. ‘Epimetheus’ is more reflective than Mantra which we featured last year, but lacks none of the lyrical poignancy that he puts into each and every track we’ve heard from him. As always, the production is top drawer. We feel 2018 is SWVN’s year.

SWVN – Mantra

#NewMusic from Glasgow, Scotland

Here’s another one that we guest blogged on Drums Eat Everything the other week that deserved a second spin. More hard hitting rap from Glasgow, this time courtesy of SWVN on his latest track ‘Mantra’.

Hints of the orient, trappy beats and a thick rap accent. Like with Shogun, Wavvy Music are once again the team bringing this to the forefront.
