Swindle launches "Trilogy of Funk" EP series with Brazil-centric Connecta EP

UK producer Swindle, who shattered many minds into tiny pieces with last year’s Peace Love & Music, is continuing his musical wanderlust in 2016. This time, instead of jamming global influences into one album, he’s streamed three locales into three funk-oriented EPs he describes as “A Trilogy of Funk.”

The first EP is Connecta, which was written and recorded in São Paulo, Brazil and distills his party tunes through a prism of Brazilian funk. The EP came out via Butterz last Friday (just in time to ride the crest of Olympic-driven Brazil-o-philia). You can sample the lead single “Copacabana” below.

The next two installments of the Trilogy of Funk will cover UK grime and L.A. P-Funk. Swindle is also touring America in September — confirmed dates are listed below.

01. Connecta Ft. Ricardo China
02. Copacabana
03. Villa Mimosa
04. Connecta (DJ Q Remix)
05. Connecta (Instrumental Mix)
