PM2.5 is the third solo-release of Shanghai-based producer Swimful. Named after the toxic particles in polluted air, PM2.5 sees Swimful tackling more dancefloor-oriented rhythms with his signature sound palette of dreamy, weightless ambience.
Swimful is the alias of English-born, Shanghai-based producer Jamie Charlton. Having spent much of his youth performing improvised music, self-releasing CDRs independently and collaborating with artists such as Machinefabriek on the Echolalia project in 2010, he went on to study Sound Arts in London, where he was tutored by composers such as David Toop.
During this time, the Swimful project was born and collaborations with Lil B and Main Attrakionz followed. His recent forays into grime and club music have garnered support from a range of DJs and producers such as Slackk, Murlo, Scratcha DVA and J-Cush, and received airtime on stations such as Rinse FM, NTS and Radar Radio.
