Led by the light of imagination, Son Swagga creates a musical realm of magic and wonder. The nine-headed kinship tells tales of warring tribes, forces of nature and cosmic sorcery.
Clanleader Felix Back draws upon his repertoire of funk-fusion, spiritual jazz and videogame music to create a sound that has never been heard before. Backed up by the tightest, most energetic rhythm section Amsterdam has to offer and spearheaded by a powerful horn section Son Swagga fanfares the coming of a new age in rhythm music.
Following their 2017 debut ‘Fires of Quidel’ Son Swagga are releasing their second full length album ‘Dark Magic’ on Super-Sonic Jazz Records on May 7th. Performance highlights include Bimhuis, Paradiso, Melkweg and Womex World Music Festival.
Son Swagga ‘Dark Magic’ is already the fifth physical release on the rising Amsterdam based Super-Sonic Jazz Records. Runned by Dutch DJ KC The Funkaholic (a.k.a. Kees Heus) and brothers Tenzers (a.k.a. Vincent & Siemen Tenzer), the Super-Sonic Jazz recordlabel, their six day festival, monthly concerts and exquisite clubnights becomes a serious movement within the Dutch musical landscape.
Kees Heus was also responsible for the running the Dutch imprint Kindred Spirits, that released records by international heavyweights, while championing local pioneers simultaneously.
Open your mind and nurture your imagination, because Son Swagga’s Dark Magic will spin mystic fiction into vivid reality.
Surprisingly cohesive compilation that remains consistent from start to finish. Sure, you could pick and choose tracks to DJ out or go-to first, but listening in full is def recommended. Aloha Got Soul
