White Noise: Boddika & Joy Orbison – Swims

Boddika & Joy Orbison – Swims

Label: Swamp81


If you haven’t already heard Boddika and Joy Orbison’s 2011 anthem Swims by now, you probably must have been making a conscious effort to avoid it. This massive tune blew up over the summer, and it’s still as satisfying and vaguely ridiculous as it was when you first heard it. Sparse percussive sequences follow one after the other under a jittery acid bassline, introducing the vocal you all know already – Walk for me, walk for me, walk for me, SERVE, walk for me etcetera. The vocal is sampled from Tronco Traxx’s Walk For Me, as are a few percussive elements, but Boddika’s distinct acid touches and the impressive breakdown featuring a perfectly incongruous cowbell ensure the comparisons stop there. On the B-side is an Alternative Mix which is largely unchanged save for a more melodic bent with big swooping chords arriving in after the breakdown, the most recognisable Joy O touch on the whole release. The only real problem here is that Swamp81 have taken so long to release it that there’s the potential for it to sound a tad dated, but the irresistible fun of this anthemic tune erases such worries as soon as you start playing it again.
