The latest single on Manchester's Swing Ting
By Marina Frías Padrón on April 27th 2016
Swing Ting, co-founded by Samrai and Platt initially started as a radio show then later became a prominent Manchester club night. Their parties showcase a crossover of music genres, ranging from dancehall, grime, hip hop to contemporary African music. In 2014, they launched the Swing Ting label with a slew of strong releases heavily influenced by sound system culture and UK bass.
'Gangsters' is the latest single from London-based producer Famous Eno; a stripped back, raw, grimey bashment production featuring Kingston vocalist Alexx A-GAME, Birmingham MC Serocee & Swing Ting regular from Manchester, Fox. The music video follows a narrative around two crooked cops and is available to watch below.
