While the London underground house music scene was blossoming through
the mid-nineties, the English city of Sheffield had also made its mark
on international music culture. Out of the Warp Records camp, emerged
Chris Duckenfield and Richard Brown’s project, Swag (not to be confused
with South London’s Swag Records), whose early releases on Jus’ Trax
cemented them as go-to remixers between the late 90s to early naughties.
After Neotropiq’s Asad Rizvi, aka Silverlining, met Chris in person,
they exchanged numbers, and soon enough, decided to swap remixes. After
Swag remixed a release by Appleheadz (a project between Asad with
Charlie Inman and Kester Lyddon) for Loaded Records, Chris asked them to
remix something off their now legendary Primitive label. The result was
this swingy, atmospheric and bassline-driven slice of deep house, that
has been in high demand on Discogs for a few years now. On the flip, is
another acid-tinged groover by Appleheadz track that originally came out
on their Moontan EP on Reverberations. Don’t sleep on this as it is
likely to fly out fast!
