Signature Series "Swingman" Single Launch 17th Dec, The Boundary says
Signature Series take you on trip back to the days of Hightop Chuck Taylor's and Hoops with their new single "Swingman".

Drawing heavily on influences as diverse as 90's Hip Hop, 70's Blaxploitation films and NBA Jam the video game, "Swingman" is the seminal anthem for those who hit the Blacktop.

Recorded at Tanuki Studios, West End the 6 piece live soul crew brought an unorthodox approach to the session. Captain of the team, Chico Mendez describes the process as: "Something that had the air of a Rocky soundtrack but didn't delve into parody. We were all brought up on a steady diet of 90;s west coat hip hop, but as we listened to the influences on that genre we found the base elements that we also like to draw on. Specifically the soul of the 60's and the funk of the 70's. With that you get to experiment with instruments like the vocoder and the MPC sampler to help define the Signature Series sound."

Hitting on lyrics such as "The Chairman of the Boards" & "Dropping Rhymes like Dimes" gives "Swingman" a sense of action around the golden era of Basketball: The 1990's.
