DJ Swerve


DJ Swerve has been on Kiss FM for over 10 years and currently hosts the Kiss Jams mixshow [Sunday night midnight], where he mixes up fresh and classic RnB and Hip Hop. He has interviewed the biggest artists in the scene from Jay Z and Snoop Dogg to Alicia Keys and Will I Am.

Swerve has also played around the globe from New York and Ibiza to Japan as well as almost every big clubnight across the UK.

In 2016 Swerve launched Hollaback, a special themed event focussing on RnB and Hip Hip from the 00’s to now.

He produces UK bass house music with fellow DJ/producer Marco del Horno as Riddim Commission. Swerve also produced D Double E’s grime classic, Street Fighter Riddim and also Ho Riddim alongside Marco del Horno which featured P Money.

DJ Swerve has interviewed pretty much every major urban artist in the industry from Jay Z, Snoop Dogg, Kayne West and 50 Cent to UK superstars Dizzee Rascal, Professor Green and Wretch 32 to name a few, showcasing his broadcasting and interview skills. Swerve has now turned his attention to another passion he had limited time for with his daily radio show, making music.
He is an extremely talented producer creating beats for some of the UK’s best artists. In 2012 he released his debut single, ‘Comeback Riddim’ ft OGz and it was snapped up by Ministry Imprint Speakerbox.

However 2010 was a landmark for Swerve as his production; D Double E’s “StreetFighter Riddim” became the biggest grime track of the year and a year later synced to hit C4 show ‘Top Boy’ featuring Kano and Ashley Walters. Shortly after “StreetFighter Riddim’s” success, Swerve created another huge grime track “Ho Riddim” featuring P Money.

Originally a remix for Marco del Horno’s track “Ho”, it was decided to make Swerve’s original mix the main version and the rest is history. Marco and Swerve decided to team up again for another club banger called ‘Just Rewind’ signed to Black Butter Records released December 2011.

This great partnership has flourished into a production and sound system collaboration called ‘Riddim Commission’. The pair have already had early success having produced official remixes for Example, DJ Fresh and Iggy Azalea. Their first EP includes tracks with Newham generals, Mr Hudson, J2K, Merky Ace and L Marshall.

Swerve DJ’s all over the UK and worldwide playing at prestigious events such as The Princes Trust Urban Music Festival and Notting Hill Carnival along with high profile corporate events for Adidas and Blackberry. Swerve was named DJ of The Year & Best Radio Show at Urban Music Awards 2 years in a row.

Swerve played his first DJ set at a community Scout Hall in South London- a night he promoted himself with friends. He recalls his first DJ gig as being ‘an extremely nerve racking experience’, but definitely enjoyable. While at school he used all of his wages from his part-time supermarket job to buy vinyl and like many young DJs living at home frequently had to sneak records into his house with the aid of his friends. Swerves other great passions are computer games, vintage frames and sneakers.

Swerve also has a keen interest in nearly every sport going and despite being a connoisseur on all things urban; on a good day you’d be mistaken for thinking he has just stepped off a GQ photo shoot. Oh, and did we mention his killer collection of 80’s pop 7 and oh yes, he brings them out from time to time too!
