Los Angeles, CA, December 14th, 2015 – The Swedish born producer/artist Big Swede is releasing his new chill house single, “Strictly Dtown Jam,” on December 17th, 2015. The release features Papa Dee, Miles Evans (Gil Evans Orchestra), Jimmy Z (Eurythmics), Oscar Hernandez(Spanish Harlem Orchestra) and Slim Diamond.
“The track combines electronic instruments, drums and samples with trumpet, saxophone and piano. I like the mixture of programming together with live instruments,” says Big Swede.
The release is the first of several songs with a downtempo/ chill out/ lounge vibe, coming in 2016. “They all have a common connection to downtown Los Angeles, in one way or another. The area really inspired this group of tracks. Downtown LA is where I live and have been making music, for about 15 years,” continues Big Swede.
“A lot of times I play all the instruments myself. I also like the idea of bringing in different musicians, playing on tracks, you might not normally hear them on. In this case it gave the track an organic feel. I usually follow my instincts,” says Big Swede.
Big Swede’s credits include Mercedes Benz “Super Service” Commercial feat. Roger Federer, Dish,NCIS, The Mentalist, CSI: Miami, Alphas, 90210, Lie To Me, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Punk’d, Real World, tour introduction music for Van Halen, and drum samples for KISS and Slash. Collaborations include Reeves Gabrels (The Cure, David Bowie), Les Hemstock (Hemstock & Jennings), Paul Ill (James Blunt, Christina Aguilera) and Greg Hampton (Alice Cooper, Lita Ford).
