Today we are pleased to introduce a bright newcomer to the site with Swayló. The talented producer incorporates influences from across the globe into his music, tapping into sounds both old and new in the best way possible. He’s fresh off the release of his debut single “Desert Flower” and is back with a refreshing tribal house song “Ancient Forest” that we’re glad to be premiering today.
“In a time full of fear and chaos, this song represents a dance between the light and dark forces at play. It was created to encourage us to face our fear, thus allowing us to move through and continue to grow and progress.” – Swayló
Swayló, whose full name is Noah De St. Croix Kessler, has a multinational background that includes experience curating festivals and immersive, experiential events branded as Swayló Nights. Just like his events, “Ancient Forest” will bring you on a journey. Listening to this song brings you into his world, seemingly transporting you to a sort of jungle setting right off the bat with samples of nature. The finely tuned track somehow naturally blends ancient elements with forward-thinking sound design into a dance-friendly tune that will get anyone’s feet moving.
Swayló effortlessly incorporates influences from different cultures in an intriguing way. He intertwines layers of soundscapes pairing worldly percussion incorporating shakers, bongos and skittering hi-hats into the hard-hitting house beat. There’s thundering, high energy moments throughout “Ancient Forest” while also immersing the listener in moments of tranquil melodies. Fans of Bonobo and ZHU will certainly enjoy this one. Stay tuned for more from Swayló and enjoy.
