Swayló is an emerging electronic music producer who’s sound, much like his own heritage, is a melting pot of cultures from around the world. The multinational phenomenon has been channeling his cross-continental roots via a project that probes the globe through earthly tones and tribal-tinged textures. The deep connection he shares with mother nature is also a driving force of his artistic vision, as he aims to tap into an ancient energy dwelling from within the cosmos and, by extension, express his appreciation for the natural elements. For his debut single on IN / ROTATION, Swayló honors the peak of the lunar cycle with an invigorating deep house single that doubles as a salutation to the full moon.
“I am releasing ‘Angel of Light’ on this full moon to remind you of your resilience and of the light that you are,” he says. “In times of darkness, create, for it will bring you back to your source.”
With his intention set, Swayló looks skyward and pays tribute to the glowing celestial body across his offering’s 5-minute run. Propelled by impeccably executed hand percussion hits, shuffling drums, low-rumbling basslines, entrancing chants, and sweeping arpeggiations, “Angel of Light” is a mesmerizing manifestation that is woven together into a primordial groove. It’s dance music with a higher purpose, and it provides yet another reason why you need to keep Swayló in your line of sight.
