Swag No Such Thing
- Words: Christine Hsieh
- Label: Version
Who says robots can't get down and dirty? The latest LP from Swag (comprised of Sheffield DJ Chris Duckenfield and engineer Richard Brown) is pure android funk with a twist-crisp, clean and sharp with space-aged sound effects and futuristic grooves that borrow from Brazilian beats and downtempo conventions. From the minimal, pared-down swagger of "I Need A Freak" to the just-luscious-enough instrumental house of "Where I Belong," No Such Thing is a delightfully no-frills excursion into the world of android electronica.
