Tresor will release a new album from the Swayzak member in June.
David Brown will release a new album under the name S_W_Z_K this June on Tresor.
The title is a clear nod to Swayzak, Brown's longtime collaboration with James Taylor, who left the duo last summer to pursue his own projects. At the time Brown said he'd carry on alone as Swayzak (a bit ironic considering the name comes from the Polish for "union"). In the meantime he's continued playing club dates under that banner, though until now he hasn't released any new material since the split.
S_W_Z_K shows Brown taking cues from the erstwhile duo's live act, teaming up with frequent collaborater Richard Davis in the process. "The project was to make sonically powerful music that would work in clubs without necessarily making 'club music,'" he says. "The tracks are very minimal in the sense that no more than ten sounds were used, giving each track space to breathe."
