It felt like Christmas morning to wake up and see DJ Swamp in my Spotify notifications. Graveyard Radio loves DJ Swamp. I’m thrilled to finally be getting a chance to write about it. The world famous turntablist has teamed up with hip-hop producer Shawneci Icecold to drop a 4 track EP. Needless to say, the EP came out fresh as fuck.
The collaboration’s opening track uses a loop from Avenged Sevenfold’s Critical Acclaim with beats layered over it, the effect was extremely epic. Swamp’s scratches on the tracks were sharp and clean as ever. The entire EP is horror themed. I picked up movie samples from Devil’s Rejects, Night of the Living Dead, Silence of the Lambs, Frankenstein, Shining, and Hellraiser on the first couple listens. There is so many more I know I’m missing. It’s creepy piano themes definitely makes me wish Halloween was closer than what it is. That said, it’s fun as hell to listen to, and should be added to your playlist right now. Until this EP, I had never heard of Icecold before, needless to say, I will be checking out more of his catalog in the near future. The tracks have also been uploaded to YouTube. You can check it out there if Spotify ain’t your thing.
It’s also worth a mention, Swamp just got off a tour DJing for King Klick on the Underground Alliance Tour w/ Blaze Ya Dead Homie. He put together a 56 minute documentary that chronicled the tour. Looked like an awesome time. Check that out below.
