Mike Swoop - New Love
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MIKE SWOOP DEBUT ALBUM "NEW LOVE" // AVAILABLE IN STORES & DIGITAL FEBRUARY 2ND, 2010
With the unveiling of his debut album, New Love, Minneapolis-based producer and composer Mike Swoop straddles the boundaries of Tribe Called Quest styled sampling and the live instrumentation of Dosh. Primarily founded on the basis of sampling and reinterpretation, Mike Swoop commands a mixture of jazz, hip-hop, dub and funk inspired grooves.
At 14, Mike Swoop wrote to the superintendent of St. Paul Public Schools explaining why they should allow him to attend the then, 16 and up Creative Arts High School. Mike's request was accepted, and it was there where he met Recording Arts teacher and local Producer/DJ Adam Bucher, known as Booka B (Basementality), who introduced Mike to sampling and the MPC. Now, at 22, as a Last of the Record Buyers Beat Battle Veteran and Music Production graduate of McNally Smith College of Music, Mike Swoop presents his self-released debut, New Love.
Contributing to the sample-based musicianship of New Love, the album features appearances from Rhymesayers’ newest artist, Toki Wright, Mexican-American hip-hop duo Big Quarters, and Kavorkian & Allpurpose.
