On a journey through time Tom Swift spins around on the dancefloor between “Stax”, “Motown” and “Studio One”. “I’ve been experimenting a lot with loops, looking for the perfect formula. On this search I totally lost my heart to 70ies Reggae and Soul.”
In Speakers Corner Studios Basel his Producers Philip Setzepfand, Eric Gut and him worked on the right vintage sound. “Dress up” is the first song. It’s an invitation for each and everyone to get down with the music, styled “like you and only you know how!” The Reggae Soul Funk loaded album will be release in summer 2013.
He’s been known as the human orchestra, the one-man band of a different kind, and inventor of the Loopomatic Groove Circulator since 2010. With the help of his associates “The Swelltones”, the vocalduo Da Nini and Easy Yves they’ve been spreading his organic grooves all over Switzerland.
