Jack Swift returns to his SPIL Records with his ‘Terminal’ EP


Jack Swift returns to his SPIL RECORDS imprint with his ‘Terminal’ EP, accompanied by fellow London talents Devstar and Tom Frankel on remix duties.

Launched towards the end of 2022, SPIL RECORDS and its founder Jack Swift set about to make waves by launching a new project into the mix, with support from the off from likes of Enzo Siragusa, Chris Stussy, Rossko and more.

Promising a healthy dose of high-quality cuts with influences from house and garage mirroring his early years listening to London’s pirate radio stations, the launch EP from Swift showcased what to expect with a powerful selection of slick productions, with remixes from garage icon Jeremy Sylvester and Inermu head James Dexter.

Returning to deliver the first material of 2023 on the imprint, the label boss steps up again with two fresh cuts across his ‘Terminal’ EP – with remixes provided by Make You Move Records co-founder Devstar and Council Work Records head Tom Frankel.

Opening with authority, the driving ‘Terminal’ is a dynamic lead cut with skippy percussion, warped vocals and rich stabs, providing a low-end heavy anthem packed full of garage cues and nuances, while the second original ‘Highrise’ is a sun-soaked and shimmering production guided by snaking grooves, hazy melodies and soulful samples. Turning in the first remix, Devstar’s ‘Feel The Vibe’ take on ‘Highrise’ brings a bumping bassline and vibrant organ stabs to proceedings, while Tom Frankel journeys towards darker, murky territories in his typically rugged interpretation to close the show.

Jack Swift ‘Terminal’ EP drops via SPIL RECORDS on 12th May 2023. We premiere ‘Highrise’ on Data Transmission today, check it out here and grab it on Beatport.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
