We are incredibly thrilled to premiere stellar South African artists Ryan Murgatroyd and Sobantwana and the release of their brand new Wooma EP, which is coming out on July 10. The hypnotizing sound picks you up in order to take you away from your daily routine – and we immediately drift along in a music of the spheres.
All things considered, it’s been a pretty incredible twelve months for Ryan Murgatroyd and the Swoon Recordings crew. Established in June 2019 as an outlet to champion South African talent and push the boundaries of traditional club music with its deep and soulful sonic leanings, Swoon has since forged itself a remarkable reputation as one of the most exciting, forward-thinking labels on the electronic music circuit.
“For me as both an artist and a woman in this time I feel it’s always important to stay true to who you are. Wooma to me was a song of letting go of all the noise around me and choosing to follow my spirit. I can only hope it moves you in the same way.” Sobantwana explains.
And Ryan tells: “It’s taken 3 years across 3 continents to complete this record. It has such a special place in my heart, because it encompasses this sound that I think personifies Swoon; a touch African, cinematic, dreamy and emotive, but unmistakably uplifting. I think we did 10 versions of the riff before we settled on this, so I’m really excited to see it finally leave the lab and head out into the world”.
‘Wooma’ EP (including remix from Zaloz) will be released on July 10, 2020 via Swoon Recordings.
