The Eyes - Harder (Official Video)


 

Two good friends of Swing Ting; Chimpo and Fox aka 'The Eyes' drop the first taste of their much anticipated album due for release later this year on Manchester's Estate Recordings.

A stripped production featuring an acoustic guitar and whistling could have been a risky venture, but on 'Harder' Fox's moving lament and Chimpo's restraint combine to form something undeniably soulful, poignant and powerful.  We've loved this one since it first surfaced and it's evident to see why Dub Phizix and Loefah have been spinning it in their sets all year.  But don't just take our word for it, give it a listen for yourself...


Harder / Come Again featuring Strategy is available digitally on 20th August 2012

Murlo live @ Swing Ting - 17th March 2012



Murlo's kindly uploaded the recording of his set from this month's Swing Ting session at the Soup Kitchen. His productions have been Swing Ting favourites for a while now and he didn't disappoint when at the controls.
Accompanied by Fox on mic, his set takes in bashment, soca, funky and everything in between. An absolute pleasure to have him down, expect big things from Murlo this year and beyond.
