Enter Altruist, an eager up and coming producer from Houston, TX. Although young, his passion for music is quite mature. Altruist, actual name Ethan Swindull, is studying diligently at Texas A&M in Telecommunication Media Studies. While at A&M, he worked at a local online radio station, KANM, where he showcased his major and DJ skills. Altruist is known for his variety and flowing in some nostalgic mashups that keep the crowd moving and grooving. His ear for music comes from some of the classics in EDM such as, Martin Garrix, Tiesto, Kaskade, and Hardwell, just to name a few.
We had a chance to catch up with Altruist during these tough times…but don’t worry, we didn’t interview in person. We did a ZOOM call and did a broadcast on Twitch and Facebook. If you missed out on the interview, catch it here below.
Whether it’s something beautiful like his “Good Things Fall Apart’ vs Sad Machine” edit, or something deadly like “Fire Blast” with KNOTZ, Altruist‘s ability to deliver something amazing is consistent. On top of that, Altruist has seen himself put on some of our favorite lineups, such as Freaky Deaky, or playing direct support for Dion Timmer & Dubloadz at Ayva. With both consistency and the talent to do and make whatever he pleases, you can see why getting him on for a mix was inevitable.
