SWIDT is a three time Tui Award winning Hip Hop collective from Onehunga. Comprising of SmokeyGotBeatz (Isaiah Libeau), SPYCC (Dan Latu), INF (Amon McGoram), JAMAL (Jamal Muavae) and Boomer Tha God (Asher Schwencke). Since exploding onto the scene in 2016 the 312 natives have made a huge impact on the local scene & are now expanding their sights onto the rest of the world.
They had a few tracks on Smokey’s SWIDT vs Everybody compilation album in 2016 and the crew first came out on the scene with ‘No More Parties in Stoneyhunga’ and quickly grew a cult following with their street hit ‘312’. A year later, they released their debut album Stoneyhunga which quickly became a classic, and saw them receive the highest number of nominations at the 2017 Vodafone NZ Music Awards. Six months after their debut, they released Stoneyhunga: The Bootleg EP, which included the hit ‘Conquer’ which made the top 20 for the APRA Silver Scroll Award. Another six months pass and they release the EP The Most Electrifying, headed by the tracks ‘Who Run It’ and ‘Praise’.
As their impressive catalogue grows, so does their need for creative freedom as they continue to provide the masses with local content at an international standard.
