Swindle & Shiftee – Smash N Grab (Live at Dubspot NYC)

Dubspot’s turntablist extraordinaire Shiftee brought his buddy Swindle through our New York school to work on a live collaboration. Swindle is a well-known South London Dubstep producer who has collaborated with some of the most respected names in the genre like Joker and Mala. Unrehearsed before this session, Shiftee and Swindle developed the performance on the spot over a couple hours. This video shows the final performance, followed by segments of Shiftee and Swindle hashing out their ideas and rehearsing. Stay tuned for more collaboration videos “Live at Dubspot” in the months to come!
