Album

Swayzak is a tech house duo from the United Kingdom that consists of James S. Taylor and David Brown. They live and work in London and released their first 12 single Bueno, Fukumachi in February 1997 to much acclaim. It was followed up by the 12 Speedboat, Low Rez Skyline to become part of the burgeoning tech-house scene in the UK. The album was later chosen as 1998 Album Of The Year in the U. dance publication Mixer. They went on to release four further studio albums making their place in the electronic music canon. James Taylor left the group in 2011 to focus on his solo project Lugano Fell. Himawari 2000, Medicine. Groovetechnology, Vol. Swayzak's debut album, Snowboarding in Argentina , abounded in polished tubes of dubbed delights and attracted envious attention from Plastikman Richie Hawtin's M Nus label. M nus' Dale Lawrence, under his Theorem guise, then initiated a sample-trading dialog which has resulted in some swoonsome, small-room techno 12-inches. The impressive thing about Swayzak's debut album was the manifest care and attention they funneled into every painstaking detail. That they hadn't propelled the genre to new heights didn't matter- they perfectly adapted what others had left behind in their rush for the next farthest horizon.

Also in contrast to their deep dub-techno excursions on split-singles with Detroit's Theorem, Himawari scatters influences from electro State of Grace, dub poetry Illegal, house Caught in This Affair, acid Mysterons, and ambient techno Doobie. Still, the album isn't a radical departure most of these inspirations are cycled through Swayzak's fondness for gorgeous, electrified, echoing synth waves. Released 2000. Himawari Tracklist.

For HIMAWARI, Swayzak's second album, the get slightly poppier, introducing vocals, like the dub poetics of "Illegal." But the quality is unchanged, and if anything, the melodies are even more catchy. The immediacy of the bass on "Kensai Rising" is infectious and the looped vocal sample exhorts you to start moving, while Kirsty Hawkshaw brings a coolness to the electro twinkle of "State of Grace." A smooth darkness slides over "Leisure Centre," while "Mysterons" keep the electro thick and moody. "Doobie" keeps the rhythm at a gallop, and the house side of their leanings comes to fruition on "Caught in This Affair," a joyous track that's almost impossible to deny. But "Japan Air" returns to the melodic tech-dub, and "Pineapple Spongecake" digs in deeper and darker. And in a sudden switch, "The Frozen Loch" turns poetic and dreamy, bringing forth the breaks after the recitation. "Floyd" returns us the rhythms, and "Betek" closes the album crisply and cleanly. A stunningly good album.

If you're into the 'basic channel sound', you'd be glad to check out the works of Swayzak. Minimalistic and sometimes dubby four to the flour techno beats, but always arranged with beautiful warm synth sweeps on top. It even gets better when Swayzak includes vocalists, like in 'coaght in this affair', which is more like a deep, warm pulsating house track.
I consider Himawari a 5 star review.
