Swarvy's new beat tape covers a lot of familiar ground, within the first couple numbers you hear SZA and Dej Loaf under a slightly different light. The uncredited "not-for-profit" beat tape isn't a new convention for Swarvy, let alone the majority of bedroom producers in the Los Angeles-area. Swarvy, born and bred in Philadelphia, relocated solely to share those conventions with other musicians like Stones Throw's Mndsgn, himself an ardent believer in "going backwards" from time to time.
Swarvy is party an endangered member of an LA scene that make records, buys records but seldom tries to break them. Swarvy's firmly-held beliefs are what limits his outreach, but in LA his DJ nights are considered hip. You could say the same about his podcasts, high in demand on pirate radio across the web.
