Release Date: 06.07.12
A1. Need To Know Feat. Toddla T & Sam Frank
A2. Have A Go Feat. Takura
Swindle gears up for his fourth release in 2012, hot off the back of attention grabbing efforts on Butterz and Deep Medi and shows no signs halting his recent prolific run of hits – both with instrumentals and vocals. This Double A-side from the highly versatile producer is no different.
Co-produced with Radio 1’s Toddla T, ‘Need To Know‘ slows down the pace with the help of Sam Frank’s vocoder-aided lyrics that echo that of Zapp and Roger with ultra funky synths and chord progression. Frank croons effortlessly about the ‘the other woman’ and all of her positive attributes but protests that she still hasn’t got anything on the main woman in his life. With its seductive slow-mo bounce and love-fueled content don’t be surprised to hear this closing a few DJ sets in months to come for the last dance.
for the track sees animated versions of Swindle, Toddla T and Sam Frank embark on an intergalactic quest to the future whilst trying to resist the temptation of extra-marital (and terrestrial) affairs and is made by Cargo Collective

‘Have A Go’ has got an unmistakable summer vibe with lush high-pitched synths and soulful but sparse vocal arrangement. Featuring vocals from Takura, a frequent collaborator with Chase & Status as well as Redlight and Skream, the track is slightly more removed from his notorious Grime efforts. However the funk-obsessed producer remains true to his love of fusing raw funk chords with hard-edged electronic beats on this occasion and has garnered early support from the likes of Annie Mac and Mistajam.
