Review: Swifta Beater – Levels EP
Birmingham-born mutli-genre (but specialist grime) producer Swifta Beater 9th release, ‘Levels EP’, is now available for download, featuring the hard-hitting track ‘Levels’ (the instrumental to Tempa T’s recent video ‘Box on my Head’) and two more equally fresh productions.
The young producer/DJ has a long history of beat-making for the some of the best vocalists in grime, including P Money and Scrufizzer, and his latest release is a highly unique mix of the styles of music he’s produced in the past. Combing elements of grime, hip hop and trap, this latest EP cements Swifta as one of the most important producers in grime right now.
The first track, ‘Levels’, kicks the EP off in blistering style, mixing manic trap with heavy-duty orchestral lines in a way only he can. The second, ‘Battle’, is more brooding, never hitting the highs of ‘Levels’, but still bringing with it a menacing energy. The third is a VIP of his notorious ‘Choir Gang’, keeping the same signature vocal sounds but rearranging them for an even harder result.
