There was a solid period of about three years there when Sydney's Swick was pushing out some of the most innovative and forward-thinking music in the world. Singles like Sideline and its encompassing Stamina EP showcased his production dexterity, which ranged from the joyous and sweet bubblegum-pop of the aforementioned lead single and tracks such as Offside to the dark rap-club of tracks like Ticketz and the Tkay Maidza-featuring Slopes. While he's certainly kept busy in 2018 producing Kota Banks' double-punch of anthems in Holiday and Zoom, his more club-orientated side has been relatively quiet - until now. Hydration, featuring his production partner-in-crime and label-host Nina Las Vegas, is the first taste of a saccharine-sweet future to come from Swick in 2018, kicking off the road to his Court Composer mixtape which we can expect in a couple of months time.
Hydration is all about that bright and bold club sound that Swick has made his signature over the past few years, with quick-firing punches of synth and percussion twisting and turning underneath Nina Las Vegas' warped vocals. It's one of the most fun electronic tracks of the year thus far - somewhat expected from Swick nowadays - but Hydration proves that between the pop-centric co-writes and endless collaboration sessions, his adventurous and inventive club-producing mind is still at its best.
