HIPHOP: Rob Swift (X-ECUTIONERS) @ Tonic Lounge Tonight! 16 Sept. + DJ’s: Mathmatics, Mike Who, Junkyard Dogs & Victor Lopez


DJ Rob Swift (X-ecutioners / Illinsanity)
**Recently Voted into the DJ Times Top 100 DJ’s in America (2nd year in a row)**

– Friday September 16th @ Tonic Lounge (Sydney)
Doors Open at 9pm- $15
supported by DJ’s Mathmatics, Mike Who, Junkyard Dogs & Victor Lopez

Rob Swift knows all about evolution and its conceptual cousin, revolution—whether it’s the spontaneous kind that sparks radical change, or the vinyl-based kind that occurs at 33-1/3 revolutions – per – minute (and variations thereof). And for a cat like Swift—who has worked with everyone from Linkin Park to the Red Hot Chili Peppers to Mike Patton to Herbie Hancock—truly forward-thinking, revolutionary music just seems to come naturally, and on some occasions, at a cost. DJs must adapt, and in this high-speed information era, that means expanding your scope of vision from beyond your instrument to new expressive vehicles “by any means necessary.”

Here’s where we drop the needle on some history: after years of honing his cuts on the wheels of steel under the tutelage of his older brother and father, Robert Aguilar aka Rob Swift was tapped, in 1991, by a Harlem-based DJ crew called the X-Men to join their ranks. Within a year he won the coveted DMC East Coast title and became known, worldwide, as a masterful DJ and a force to be reckoned. Even when, to avoid the obvious beef with Marvel Comics, the X-Men were compelled to change their name to the X-ecutioners, Swift (and his compatriots Roc Raida, Mista Sinista and Total Eclipse) still retained a superhero’s afterglow. Their 1997 debut album X-Pressions (Ashpodel) served notice, with dirt-funky tracks like “Word Play” making it clear that Swift the recording artist was on the rise. Five years later, the group’s first major-label debut Built From Scratch (Loud/Columbia) generated the huge hit “It’s Goin’ Down” featuring Linkin Park.

However, the freshly acquired mainstream success brought on new challenges. The pressures of compromising their creativity for the sake of living up to previous record sales, brought about artistic tension amongst the X-ecutioners. Unwilling to sacrifice his creativeness, Rob was inspired to establish himself as a soloist and break through with a series of genre-busting albums of his own (the first being 1998’s The Ablist). Sound Event (2002), his second solo effort, set the tone for his ascendant multi-faceted production style, mapping dark jeep beats (“Hip-Hop on Wax,” with Large Professor), Latin Jazz (“Salsa Scratch,” with Bob James) and ambient-electronic funk (the psychedelic “Interview with Colored Man,” with Supernatural) with the deft touch of a seasoned studio hand.

Rob continues to dominate his field to this day. For the last 2 years he has been voted into the DJ Times Top 100 DJ’s list in the USA. He has also steadily been showcasing his skills to an international audience with non-stop touring. Now it’s time for the man with the smoothest, most musical cuts in the game to return to our paret of the world.

Get ready for the return of DJ Rob Swift to the Australian shores!!!

It is time to not only celebrate the safe return of all our fine troops but also to raise our glasses in honour of one of our militia’s top commanders. On this night we would like to help commemorate yet another year on this fine wonderful planet for none other than Lieutenant Fernandes.

To help celebrate, our new allies, the ZULU WARRIORS have been asked to perform a unique and empowering number of their warrior chant dance numbers live in the flesh with nothing else to derive the sounds but their hand made drums and their voices to energetically get us all up on our feet wailing the night away!

WE ASSURE YOU… these warriors will set your feet on fire!

And to help us maintain the velocity of our feet on the night, our Reception Marshals have asked Lieutenant Dave Fernandes himself as well as Lieutenant Dean Dixon to take to manning the wheels of our tanks, to spin the dials of our operating systems and to pull the triggers of our anti-aircraft guns to help us light up the night in fine fashion and with an artistry of noises to have each and every single one of you beating your chests, pounding those terrifying thoughts of battle out, and reaching for that starry night sky!
