This summer, Swindle—the London-based musician who fuses melodic jazz and bass music together in a pretty incomparable way—returns to his original home of Butterz to release his second album, Peace, Love & Music. The record was made on a round the world trip, during which Swindle collaborated with artists in Shanghai, Tokyo and the Phillipines, as well as fellow UK artists JME and Joker, and even his own dad, who plays guitar on the album outro. In L.A., he enlisted the help of vocalist Ash Riser, who appears on the track "London to L.A."
"I spent 2 months of 2014 living in L.A. and this track is the representation of my time there," Swindle told The FADER over email. "For the video, I really wanted put light on just how many great people and places music has introduced me to along the way... London to L.A. and everywhere in between!" Watch the video exclusively above, and find out where you can catch Swindle on yet more of his travels.
