Swish Jaguar Delivers A Smooth Lovers Rock Version Of Twennynine & Lenny White's "Morning Sunrise"

"Swish Jaguar is a rare artist. Rare in the sense that he’s rarely been seen in public, on social media, or on wax - until now. All we know about this enigmatic recluse is that he survives mostly on a steady diet of kombucha, synths and edibles, emerging periodically from his cave with an offering of his choosing. 

His debut single for General Principle, “Morning Sunrise”, a cover of the Lenny White classic, lives at the intersection of Weldon Irvine and Roger Troutman and should suitably enhance any smoke session, casual fling or Lovers Covers set. On the flip, Swish doesn’t stray far from the agenda with “Sierra Moon”, a feel-good original composition designed to elicit a similar response. Limited to 500 copies. Retail > Resale. Act accordingly."
