'Swinging Flavours' is the first in a new series of 7' & Digital releases by Beat Machine Records that explores a more 'Dancefloor' focused sound.
"Swinging Flavors #1" is the handy work of Sun People aka Simon / Off. The Disko404 owner, Phuture Shock Music affiliate and Sub.FM / Radio Helsinki regular host debuts on the label with a 6-minute banger filled with heavy bass vibes & toms sorrounded by chopped but smooth female vocals and spacey synths.

We thought it was only right to share this music with you, so we have put our heads together and complied some our highlights of the last 12 months. Please enjoy and happy listening.
