NIIKO X SWAE
After closing out 2021 with a busy U.S. tour schedule and kicking off the new year with a prestigious show at Las Vegas’ Hakkasan Nightclub, American go-getters NIIKO X SWAE are firing on all cylinders on the production front as well. Tempting dance floor occupants with its undeniable appeal and anthem-like drop, ‘Pathway’ underlines the L.A. duo’s intentions to make 2022 at least as memorable and significant as the previous year.
Helmed by a heart-rattling bass line and an equally seductive groove, NIIKO X SWAE’s ‘Pathway’ immediately catches listeners in the heat of the moment. Dark, sensual and even a bit spicy at times, this track offers so much dance floor appeal things are destined to get steamy.
''An epic is a long poem narrating the deeds and adventures of heroic or legendary figure.", NIIKO X SWAE share. “Pathway is an epic in itself. It is a journey of distortion, emotion, and in-your-face bass sound design. The atmospheric breakdowns, paired with the driving bass and looming vocal give the listener a captivating auditory experience. Since its inception, we cannot help but play the entire song out live. We like to pack our live sets with tons of energy and this tune turned out to be the perfect “pathway” towards that sentiment.
Childhood friends NIIKO X SWAE spent their early days learning to produce and dreaming of pioneering a new lane in house music. Flash forward to today, the L.A.-based pair are regulars on U.S. Dance radio (‘Typical Love’ is currently top 5 on mediabase), laid claim to in-demand residencies at HAKKASAN, Las Vegas and OMNIA, San Diego, have headlined sold-out shows across the country, and have become a staple to any successful remix package, reimagining tracks from the likes of Bebe Rexha, Charlotte Lawrence, Cheat Codes and more.
