Happy summer everyone! The suns out in the UK so it’s time to come through with another selection of fresh swinging beats.
The big news here is that I’ve moved into a new house – Swing Towers 2 – which is perfect in every respect except it’s going to take 30 days for the truly rubbish broadband provider to bother to get it turned on. That means this Roundup may be a bit briefer than usual since it’s not easy doing this all through a mobile!
Dimaa mixing up the glitch and swing. Download from here.
Bouncy house with a bit of a swing style bump from Tomahawk:
