Sound Event

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Tom Semioli
Turntablist Rob Swift gets a little help and inspiration aplenty from his friends and heroes on Sound Event, an explosive and intelligent collection of wicked scratching, in-the-pocket beats, startling imagery, and whiz-kid wordplay.

"2 3 Break" incorporates kinetic free jazz riffing atop a hypnotic drum loop that resonates with the rattle of a loose snare. With Bob James, D-Styles, and Swift's mom, Clara Aguilar, ...

All Music Guide - Tom Semioli
Turntablist Rob Swift gets a little help and inspiration aplenty from his friends and heroes on Sound Event, an explosive and intelligent collection of wicked scratching, in-the-pocket beats, startling imagery, and whiz-kid wordplay. Recalling his first impressive encounter with stream-of-conscious rapper Supernatural, Swift passes the mic over to the freestyling MC to herald the second coming i.e., Swift's second solo release, tethering the titles of each track into a poetic diatribe. "2 3 Break" incorporates kinetic free jazz riffing atop a hypnotic drum loop that resonates with the rattle of a loose snare. With Bob James, D-Styles, and Swift's mom, Clara Aguilar, onboard, "Salsa Scratch" tears down the barrier between Latino tradition and hip-hop. "The Ghetto" introduces a Jimi Hendrix-like rhythm guitar motif punctuated by a legato horn solo as a canvass for a fierce dialogue detailing the hard truths of growing up on the wrong side of the tracks. Progressive and engaging, Sound Event is as important as its title suggests.
Vibe

On Sound Event, his first solo offering in three years, Rob Swift continues to prove that words are an overrated form of communication. Matt Conaway
