A SWANN – “Very Ancient Variations”

A SWANN - Very Ancient Variations

A good friend of the Porch, Austin Swann, has contributed a killer mix for your listening pleasure. A SWANN is a talented lad currently residing in Denton, TX. He is a gentleman of the night and also contributes to the music blog yeahdef.

The mix he procured takes the listener from crunchy electro-house to the tropical Balearic beat scene in Sweden, from minimal cerebral techno to old school thumpers. Headphones or a solid sound system suggested to get your heartbeat up and your head spinnin’. You can find some of A SWANN’s original homemade tracks at myspace.com/austinswann
