Ryan Murgatroyd’s Swoon Recordings is celebrating their 1 year anniversary with an amazing original release featuring the emotive vocals of South Africa’s own, Sobantwana and a remix by Zaloz.
Though only a year old, the Swoon Recordings imprint has seen massive success since its creation in June 2019, with 7 releases to date and many more in the works. The initial concept behind Swoon stems from their passion for boundary-pushing traditional club music that leans towards the deep and soulful elements of house music, which has already seen the label garner international recognition as one of the leading players at the forefront of electronic music.
With an already impressive catalogue of both international and local artists on the roster and some of South Africa’s finest since their debut release, they have decided to celebrate with a homage to their creator in typical Swoon style by releasing a stunning new two-part EP from label boss, Ryan Murgatroyd, Sobantwana and Zaloz titled, ‘Wooma’.
Exploring the more poignant and emotive elements of electronica, Ryan Murgatroyd’s pursuit of perfection in his productions shines through in his outstanding original production, delivering a breathtaking deep house masterpiece filled with ethereal atmospheres, energetic groove-based rhythms and emotive vocal elements added by Sobantwana to complete this sonic masterpiece.
Accompanying the original sees South African brothers, Zaloz, take the original into their exquisite signature world that helps encapsulate the original’s essence in new terrain. Crafting vibrant elements into the beat that encapsulates both the body and mind and holds true to the originals ideology, all the while stepping into a new frontier that Zaloz has become known for, allowing them to close off the EP in style.
Speaking about the Wooma ft. Sobantwana, Ryan commented:
“It’s been 3 years and 3 continents to complete this record. It has such a special place in my heart because it encompasses this sound that I think personifies Swoon, a touch African, cinematic, dreamy and emotive, but unmistakably uplifting. I think we did 10 versions of the riff before we settled on this, I’m really excited to see it finally leave the lab and head out into the world
Ryan Murgatroyd’s ‘Wooma’ featuring Sobantwana will be available everywhere on July 10th 2020 via Swoon Recordings.
