Story #2 – The start of the label Sway

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

Sway was the third label. Focus – techno.
I went to a party, hosted by Johan Bacto in Jönköping, named “Mankind #3” 2002-04-13, with a very nice line-up on the Swedish countryside; James Ruskin, Devilfish, Hardcell, Pehr Herb, Tobias Von Hofsten and Rino Cerrone. As I recall, Adam Beyer was also supporting the event with his presence. I was connecting with all artists backstage and the idea to do collaborations on Sway was born. I’ve already released some material together with Johan Bacto before, on his labels that went really well, so the first Sway was also a “Hertz & Johan Bacto”-release.

Hertz working 2 days with Hardcell looked like this;
I paid for flight tickets Stockholm-Gothenburg, picked Nils up at the airport in the morning, went straight to my house/studio. Started to check some tracks and then straight to work. Did a track in some hours in hot summer weather; we needed to cool down! Moped down to the ocean, swim for an hour, back home working. Another track done. Bought some nice food. Slept in my house. Woke up, back to work, another track done, straight to airport and two productive days were done. The foundation of Sway-3 was rolled out. Very fun and memorable. The same implementation with Tobias and Jonas on Sway-2 and Sway-7.

Not so hard to be a techno-musician after all 😉

Some of the collaborations is included on “Sway – The Catalogue 2 – Remaster 2013”.
