Product description

Ablist

Amazon.com

As a member of the X-Ecutioners, Rob Swift has made a name for himself as a particularly progressive turntablist. Embracing his technique as a vehicle for expression like any other artist, Swift solidifies this bold vision on his solo debut, The Ablist. Exhibiting a jazzy, freestyle DJ aesthetic with roots in rap, hip-hop, and urban soul, Swift produces a unified sound emphasizing his turntable skills without ever abandoning the premise of actual song form. Swift scratches and spins his way though 13 stimulating compositions, enlisting the aid of rappers, singers, and other instrumentalists. While this recording maintains many of the old turntable traditions, The Ablist also points the way toward viewing this DJ as a thoroughly modern musician. --Mitch Myers
