Swag. For the uninitiated, the word conjures up thoughts of janky, promo ballpoints; logo’d stress relievers, and shrinky-dink convention T-shirts. But for acid and deep house aficionados alike, Swag is a great, genre-crossing, dancefloor high-wire act. Is it deep? Is it techy? Am I hearing acid? Then where is that smooth vocal coming from? Alongside longtime music-partner Richard Brown, Chris Duckenfield makes up one half of famed UK producers Swag. With expert versatility, he balances his DJ sets with a cool, deep groove yin and hot, acid-laced yang. Drop into Smart Bar to catch this talented DJ, producer, label owner (Version, Odori), and all-around deck technician. (Duke Shin)
