Swerve currently hosts his multi genre Mix Block on Kiss on Wednesday night and the station’s flagship R&B show, Kiss Jams on the World famous Kiss FM on Sunday nights.
Swerve has interviewed pretty much every major urban artist in the industry from Jay Z, Snoop Dogg, Kanye West and 50 Cent to UK superstars Dizzee Rascal, Professor Green and Wretch 32 to name a few, showcasing his broadcasting and interview skills. Swerve has now turned his attention to another passion he had limited time for with his daily radio show, making music.
He is an extremely talented producer creating beats for some of the UK best artists. In 2012 he released his debut single, 'Comeback Riddim' ft OGz [P Money, Blacks & Little Dee] and it was snapped up by Ministry imprint Speakerbox.
However 2010 was a landmark for Swerve as his production; D Double E's "StreetFighter Riddim" became the biggest grime track of the year and a year later synced to hit C4 show 'Top Boy' featuring Kano and Ashley Walters. Shortly after "Street Fighter Riddim's" success, Swerve created another huge grime track "Ho Riddim" featuring P Money.
Originally a remix for Marco del Horno’s track "Ho", it was decided to make Swerve’s mix the main version and the rest is history. Marco and Swerve decided to team up again for another club banger called 'Just Rewind' signed to Black Butter Records released December 2011.
This great partnership has flourished into a production and soundsystem collaboration called 'Riddim Commission'. The pair have already had early success having produced official remixes for Example, DJ Fresh and Iggy Azalea. Their first EP includes tracks with Newham Generals, Mr Hudson, J2K, Merky Ace and L Marshall.
Swerve DJ's all over the UK and worldwide playing at prestigious events such as The Princes Trust Urban Music Festival and Notting Hill Carnival along with high profile corporate events for Adidas and Blackberry. Swerve was named DJ of The Year & Best Radio Show at Urban Music Awards 2 years in a row.
Swerve played his first DJ set at a community Scout Hall in South London – a night he promoted himself with friends. He recalls his first DJ gig as being 'an extremely nerve racking experience', but definitely enjoyable. While at school he used all of his wages from his part-time supermarket job to buy vinyl and like many young DJs living at home frequently had to sneak records into his house with the aid of his friends. Swerve's other great passions are computer games, vintage frames and sneakers. Swerve also has a keen interest in nearly every sport going and despite being a connoisseur on all things urban; on a good day you'd be mistaken for thinking he has just stepped off a GQ photo shoot. Oh, and did we mention his killer collection of 80-s pop 7" and oh yes, he brings them out from time to time too!
