Rhythm Department Records label boss and Manchester house giant Swales readies the tenth release on Distant Horizons, showcasing his signature blend of ecstatic rhythms, playful melodies and vivid, late-night excursions. Having become synonymous as a purveyor of quality house through his releases with Dansu Discs, Slothboogie and Honey Butter Records - the UK based producer provides a constant nod to the roots of dance through his own futuristic lens.
Opening the release is ‘Faded Dreams’, a beautifully crafted track that ebbs and flows amongst sweat induced hugs and tears on the dance floor. The mantra ‘everything must fade’ is voiced softly, speaking to the transient nature of time while embodying the trascendental effect music can have. ‘Waves’ then invites a flow state of peace and tranquility, through its steady pace and oceanic blue textures - the drifting sonics are inviting, encouraging listeners to become lost within their layered arms.
‘Open Your Mind’ picks up perfectly where ‘Waves’ left off with its jazz infused melodies and organic grooves. The mood radiates new city energy - the first wide-eyed experience of new smells, sights and the shining promise of opportunity. The pleasure dial is turned up to 100 in ‘Looking Back’ Swales capturing the distinctive energy from early house records with a progression of bubbling basslines, infectious chords and nostalgic vocal samples.
