Born and raised in Miami, self-taught DJ/producer Bryan Softwell has emerged from the city’s bustling nightlife scene and risen through the ranks to set himself up as a name to watch for the future. From his recent appearance at iii Points through to, EDC Orlando, LA’s Day Trip and New York’s Webster Hall, his sets and sound, taking influences from his Latin heritage, have seen him gain key early love and support from Pete Tong, MK, Cloonee, and Lee Foss to name a few. Building on releases via Sink Or Swim, Night Service Only, and multiple outings on Foss’ Repopulate Mars, his next project sees him level up again with the launch of his own label, Swell.
Following a series of electrifying Swell parties, bringing together music aficionados from all walks of life, the natural progression brings a platform to capture the magic of those nights and showcase its signature sound: infectious beats, hypnotic basslines and irresistible grooves capturing the sun-kissed beaches of Miami to the darkest corners of the city’s underground club scene. Opening things in style, late November welcomes the arrival of his ‘If These Walls Could Talk’ EP – with early love from Luciano, Blackchild, Iglesias and ChaseWest.
“For ‘If These Walls Could Talk’, I always wanted to create a track with some salsa elements. I love listening to salsa in my free time for inspiration. The label’s mission is to not only curate cutting-edge music, but to create an inclusive space where artists and fans alike can come together to celebrate their shared love for the electronic music experience.” – Bryan Softwell.
A vibrant production fusing rousing Salsa interludes amongst crisp rolling percussion and intoxicating grooves, title track ‘If These Walls Could Talk’ is a perfect example of Softwell’s growing sound as he delivers a bubbling cut made for the dancefloor, while ‘Lucky Break’ uncovers a percussive workout as slinking drums and icy hats weave around warped vocal samples to shape things up nicely.
