Their press release would have you believe that Aashton & Swift are from Brighton. They’re not, well, one is (Aashton), the other (Swift) is from Bristol, the greatest of all cities. Bristol is not amused by this heinous of errors and demands blood. If not then at least get your ears ‘round their new single on Body Work. Holy House, released next month.
Holy House hard as hell to pin down, but once you slip into it’s groove it’s hard to get back out again. A light Chicago House refrain floats over some seriously heavy Deep Tribal House creating this exotic, hypnotic musical mantra that draws you in and doesn’t let go. Immensely funky, Holy House is pure late night jam. Covenant the track’s flip side brings in Aashton & Swift Electro Boogie side a little more, shining a light on their Disco fuelled digital bass. It’s a track that in equal amounts brings to mind both sweaty House dancefloors and B-Boy spinning on their heads. There sounds like some early Juan Aitkins in there somewhere. Tronic Youth finish up the single, taking Holy House and layering it with their eclectic Disco sheen with some shiny percussion and a range of Dub effects. It’s a solid single, and one that’ll have you hitting repeat.
