Download Planet (Sway vs. Leftfield)
This was my first full-on electronic mash-up and blends the smart grime/hip-hop stylings of UK rapper and producer Sway with the fat hammering dance of Leftfield's classic "Phat Planet".
First posted on GYBO, this got spun on XFM Scotland by the great McSleazy.
"Download Planet" was also featured in Soobrosa's eclectic electric Peter K Made Me Do It mix, on Cuts&Mouse Radio, and in the TCRE SoundClash.
Figuring this one might deserve a bump and a bit more shine, especially in light of the lyrics (more relevant than ever), and Sway offering his new mixtape as a free download, i've slapped together a little video for Youtube.
