Origin: United States
Alex Swartwout –better known by his stage name SLIPPY– is an EDM producer and DJ hailing from Florida. He began releasing music with Monstercat in 2015 and has quickly grown to become a widely-recognized figure in the bass music scene, known for his distinguished take on trap and dubstep, alongside other styles.
SLIPPY’s signature sound can best be described as a riveting hybrid of genres with dark, sinister, orchestral-influenced undertones. Many of Swartwout’s originals lure listeners in with rich atmospheres and eerie melodies, but quickly shift things into high gear with fiery, energetic bass drops. Swartwout has worked with acts such as Dirty Audio, Holly, Rogue and Harry Shotta, with his productions receiving support from notable names like Steve Aoki, Seven Lions, NGHTMRE, Yellow Claw, Kayzo, 12th Planet, Diplo, and Adventure Club. He has also had music featured in Rocket League and Beat Saber (currently the best-selling VR game in the world), done official remixes for the likes of Dabin and Krewella, and performed at venues like Avalon Hollywood. 2020 will mark the 5th year of Swartwout’s creative project, and it will be the most important so far as he expands his creative vision –both sonically and visually– to take things to the next level.
