Full-time hustler Sweater Beats is the slowly building Brooklyn baller who produces funky, electronic tunes using samples and slick riffs. No frills, all thrills.
Nu-disco, chill-wave sampling magician Sweater Beats has serious mixing abilities. Apt at perfectly beat matching the BPM of any track and any genre, Antonio Cuna’s technical abilities are outstanding. Establishing label Huh What and Where at college with his mates, Antonio’s crew have made a name for themselves by releasing only the kind of scattered, lo-fi sounds that inspire them personally. Their tastes are left wing and not easily acquired. Layering choppy samples and 80′s style hooks over muted bass tones and warped vocals, Sweater Beats’ signature lullaby-like mash ups have taken off virally and the real world will soon follow. Disclosing little about himself, taking the non-commercial route to recognition, Antonio’s quiet confidence in the music’s inevitable success is clear. The less said the better, explore Sweater Beats’ sweet melodies. This is music designed to listen to lying down, drop it.
