POINT OF VIEW INTERVIEW #19

PRODUCER: SWICK


There’s nothing stopping this Melbourne producer from making electronic music that can only be defined as original and untamed. After the release of his ultramodern EP, Stamina, nothing but praise has been gravitating towards him. As an artist apart of NLV Records, started by Nina Las Vegas, Swick is not afraid to experiment and twist different genres of electronic music together. In order to give us something rare and unheard of, he pushes boundaries with every song he releases. Such as his collaborations with Nina Las Vegas, “Don’t Send” the Cool Sports EP, and “Now or Never” also featuring C.Z., plus his NLV singles like “R6 Wheel” and “Sideline” featuring Eden xo, Swick is only innovating the electronic music scene even further. Below, I had the honor of interviewing the ingenious Swick to ask about his inspirations behind him and his music. Enjoy!

Question 1: What got you into making music? 

Ah I think it was the first time I saw a DJ Setup which happened to be at my Dad's 40th lol. When I was like 13, from then on I just got really into anything to do with DJing & music and taught myself everything. Before that though, when I was younger I remember just really being into CD's & burning CD's at home with songs I liked on them for members of my family and drawing artworks & writing track lists for them lol.

Question 2: What people intrigue you or inspire you to pursue music? (Can be in any field i.e. music, writers, etc.) 


Prince intrigues me and inspires me for sure... always has & always will. My friends & family inspire me. All the artists I listen to inspire me in one way or another. People who just do cool stuff, people who do what they want no matter what and keep at it, inspire me. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Roger Federer, Robert Deniro, M.I.A, Skepta, David Beckham, Diplo, Nina Las Vegas are some. Lots of people do... there are heaps of cool people around for sure! 

Question 3: How would you define your style of music?

I would define it as me. It's different and sounds like a collection of all the things & different styles that I like and also sounds like stuff that doesn't really exist yet. I don't really know how to define my style exactly lol. 

Question 4: What influences your style of work?

Everything and anything influences me things like video games, soccer, fresh fruit, cool movies, soft drinks, cool clothes, stadiums, nature, cool pictures, art, parties & even how I am feeling at a particular time can influence my style of work. 

Question 5: What is your favorite track that you have produced so far?

Hmmm. Good question. I'm not really sure. Obviously at the moment my favourite production is my latest EP Stamina

Question 6: How far do you plan to take your music, any goals? Who would you like to work with in the future?

I plan to take it as far as I can whatever that may be. One of my goals is to make a song that I really love and that all different kinds of people like as well. For example, if someone who goes out every weekend likes it and then someone like my mum likes it that would get me up. I'm down to work with anyone that I think is sick and that I think I can make a good song with!
