Me in my studio: Swindle
Percussion palace

On his recently released debut album, Long Live The Jazz, London-based producer Swindle blends thick grime synths with the heavily swung rhythms of funk and soul.

Here he gives us a tour around his studio and talks us through the synths, percussion and studio gear behind the LP.

Swindle’s Long Live The Jazz is out now on DEEP MEDi.
