about

From the moment this machine is booted BOP begins buzzing with kinetic warmth. This is something characteristic of Swarvy's sound, the LA-by-way-of-Philly musical polymath with a vast catalog including sun-soaked live instrumentals, jazz-infused loops and lo-fi gems. With BOP, he is musical mad scientist, flaunting his technical finesse as he plunges into the realm of abstraction.

Swarvy makes his mark in BOP even while grappling with its colder, industrial elements. With broken rhythms and jagged textures, he pieces together tunes of emotive beauty. The result is undeniably playful and delightfully odd, something like songs of love sung by robots.

Through its wavy ambience runs a current of aural ephemera - bits of speech samples, bossa riffs, and R&B with opaque origins. BOP's genre-bending tracks will take you to ten compelling dimensions, forming an archeology of cyberspace and musical artifacts that'll leave your cold robotic heart melting in the LA sun.
