Swelta is Los Angeles based DJ and Producer Anthony Dean. Raised in the heat-laden gutter sound of Austin, Texas, Swelta has made a name for his assorted selection and advocacy of underground music lifestyles and culture. Though classically trained in the UK sounds of Garage and Grime, Swelta’s style proves anything but streamlined: “East Coast club music, UK club music, from the heart of the Caribbean to the throws of Texas chopped and screwed, when I play, the lines are merely academic. I believe that we need to strive for diverse club experiences, for experiences that may open minds and overcome the boundaries we experience every day. Though electronic music loves its genre specificity, it’s diversity that actually mirrors our increasingly integrated social world. I guess I’m still a believer in PLUR, without all the bullshit.” Swelta is an affiliate of #FEELINGS Records and Boston’s Lifted Contingency.

"Together Boston is rapidly positioning itself as one of the United States’ best events for forward-thinking music."

"The festival’s seventh year was its best yet… Every day of the week there was at least one—and often several—things to look forward to."

"The core notion of the festival … isn’t just to provide a good time, but to illustrate the fertile mix of art and technology intrinsic to current-day Boston."

"The sixth edition of Together ... was a reminder of how much Boston still has to offer for the tribes of dance music fans who live here ... Despite its size, Together pulled off an impressive range of sounds from across the electronic spectrum."
