A crew of artists based between Manchester & London including DJs, producers and vocalists, united by a love of soundsystem and street sounds.
Platt & Samrai initially began Swing Ting as a specialist radio show before becoming a party in December 2008. In 2011 the dances moved to arguably the UK’s finest club venue, Soup Kitchen, where they take place every 3rd Saturday of the month with crowd favourites Fox, Murlo & Joey B joining the resident team in 2012.
Winter 2014 saw the inception of the Swing Ting label, seeking to provide a platform to release fresh music from the family as well as from friends, peers and like-minded producers. Since then the releases have flowed, with Brackles, Fox, Madd Again! (Zed Bias, Trigga, Killa Benz & Specialist Moss), Famous Eno, Florentino, Trigganom, Equiknoxx, Devin Di Dakta, Alexx A-Game, Samrai & Platt all releasing on the imprint.
The resident crew have built a strong reputation of rocking parties beyond just the UK taking the Swing Ting sound on the road with bookings across Europe, Central America, the Caribbean.
