about

"New and brilliant. Reminds me in a very good way of The Avalanches."
- Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1)

"I really do like it a lot!"
 ­- Steve Lamacq (BBC 6music)

"An epic cut and paste, sampladelic cartoon of a roller­coaster ride through the history of popular music."
-­ Chris Coco (Legendary House/Downtempo DJ)

"In a time when everyone with a laptop and a pirated copy of Fruity Loops is a producer, here’s a man who really knows what he’s doing, sculpting outrageously lovely songs with the finesse of someone who’s spent their whole life immersed in great songs."
- Joe Sparrow (Editor - ANewBandADay.com)"

"...like meeting someone you feel you’ve known your whole life. Love at first listen. It makes me dream of the luxurious beach dance parties, I could and should be having, and if the guests happen to be mistaken about whether it’s the 60s, all the better."
- DippedinDollars.com "Go ahead. Try not to turn this up loud."
- Laurent Hrybyk (Pasta Primavera)

"Bloody amazing" ­
- Dyl Mei (Legendary Welsh Tastemaker)

"An incredible talent, obviously a musicologist."
- Adam Walton (BBC Radio Wales)

Created over a 5 year period, 'Alphabet' is the debut album from London based Welsh beatsmith Channel Swimmer. It's a feast for all seasons made around summer memories, winter blues and nostalgic dreams. Almost entirely sample based but with some live instrumentation and singing thrown in, 'Alphabet' is a varied journey through genres, fads, countries and eras.
