Samrai & Platt
Manchester’s Swing Ting started in 2011 as a bass, dancehall and reggaeton club night, then became a label with an eclectic, international focus. Founders Samrai & Platt draw on links with Ireland and Jamaica as well as tapping Manchester artists such as Fox and Tyler Daley, who feature on tempo-hopping yet cohesive six-track EP ‘Junction’. Highlights include ‘Turn It Up’, with a joyous vocal from Equiknoxx’s Shanique Marie, and ‘Addiction’s muted guitar, glistening keys and emotive Gemma Dunleavy vocal.
‘Junction’ is out now digitally; vinyl release due early ’18
