Canadian producer Bwana goes HAM with a Taylor Swift vocal. 

After hearing Bwana’s awe-inspiring Akira tribute Capsule’s Pride, released on LuckyMe this March, we had to get him in for an Against The Clock session.

Showing off his sharp ear for samples, in just 10 minutes he flips a Taylor Swift vocal into choppy, Holly Herndon-esque euphoria with his quick-fingered Ableton approach. It’s one of the most fully formed compositions we’ve seen from an Against The Clock challenge.

Currently living in Berlin, the formerly Toronto-based producer has just released his Panorama Bar-inspired Opening The Gate EP on Aus Music.

Listen to Bwana’s finished tune from his Against The Clock below.
