JR SWIFT is a young producer hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina via Virginia Beach, Virginia. Music is his life considering his father Jay Swift has worked with many underground Hip Hop acts including Kool G Rap, Papoose, Canibus, and Awon to name a few. JR provides a soulful throwback to a more playful era in music finding inspiration in Neo Soul Music, Jazz, and R&B. Most notably he channels the late J Dilla, Madlib, Q-Tip, and Flying Lotus to create this remarkable instrumental Soul & Party Beat Tape. It is the type of listen you can throw on and not skip one track because everything has such a cohesive groove. I hope you all find the time to post this wonderful effort coming from the young producer. He thanks you all for the support and sends warm regards.

Not sure if you're aware but I host my own radio show every friday on Ness Radio, an internet based radio station. If you're not, then where have you been? If you are then read on anyway....
Located in Marrakech, the frequency is played all over the world, with DJ's also based in different corners of the globe. It's audience has grown tremendously in a short space of time, and we are now on most digital TV sets in France and you can download the iPhone app!!
I record my own show sitting down in my DIY home studio, with occasional guests or skype encounters. It's all spoken in French, so if you don't speak it, just enjoy the soothing sound of my suave voice and of course the big tunes I mix.
Razor's latest material finds the North West London artist illustrating his progression both as an artist and as an individual; the music career he has seen begin to flourish after years of tireless effort on the circuit, and the personal hardship and pain that frame his success. Through his established blend of sincere tracks and heartfelt lyricism Razor brings to light the difficulties of balancing these two lives, both just as fragile.
In addition to the OMA recognition, Razor has been shortlisted for 'Best Urban Act at the Exposure Music Awards, and has emerged as the winner of the 'In It To Win It' rap competition, subsequently having the video for his song 'Closer' filmed by Link Up TV to add to his growing catalogue of videos in rotation on TV and the internet.
Razor has performed at open mic showcases across the city, including those hosted by DJ Charlie Sloth (BBC 1Xtra) and DJ Quincy (Choice fm), and has recently expanded beyond London, all the while pursuing his own strategy of independent distribution and promotion. His mixtapes are also available on a number of websites.
Razor was featured on 'The Hoods Got Talent' documentary on emerging underground talent, which included also: Jamal Edwards (founder of SBTV), Gordon Mac (founder of kiss fm) and Ace and Vis (BBC1Xtra); now available of iTunes.
