Jordan Safford AKA Swizzymack is undoubtedly the Prince of Philly Club music, a mix of core Hip-Hop and bounce / juke music turned up to 160+ BPM. In other words…Philly Club is energetic, grungy, and will have you bouncing around the dance floor like a jalapeño popper. Mad Decent (Swizzy’s label) describes his music as “trap so loud, dirty, and dripping with twerk sweat that it’s guaranteed to make even your great-aunt Gertrude drop her crochet and start dancing”.
Swizzy’s creativity and commitment to experimentation are exactly what drew interest from Diplo in 2010. His debut EP Bass was released on Mad Decent’s Jeffree’s imprint in June 2013 and he’s been bringing nuclear danceability to clubs ever since.
