about

Out of the lab coat, and into the vintage suit. The Groove Professor dresses up!!! Tom Swift follows the retro trail back to the groovy 70ies! Retro Soul for Posers, Pimps, Hillbillies and Hipsters.

On a journey through time Tom Swift spins around on the dancefloor between “Stax”, “Motown” and “Studio One”. “I’ve been experimenting a lot with loops, looking for the perfect formula. On this search I totally lost my heart to 70ies Reggae and Soul.”

In Speakers Corner Studios Basel his Producers Philip Setzepfand, Eric Gut and him worked on the right vintage sound. “Dress up” is the first song. It’s an invitation for each and everyone to get down with the music, styled “like you and only you know how!” The Reggae Soul Funk loaded album will be release in summer 2013.

Track Name: Dress UP
Chorus:
Dress up like you want to
Like you and only you know how
Dress up like you want to
The worlds a stage so play your part

1)Get your rags out of your cupboard
Air them out and blow the dust away.
Take a good look at the mirror.
Cause today is a special day!

Chorus

2)There's no law against good looking
So why hide beauty in a rotten shell
You shape the world you live in,
Everything you wear's a story to tell.

Bridge:
Are you sending out an SOS?
Are you looking for that sweet caress?
Are you untouched like the mother virgin Mary?
are you a queen, a whore or just a fairy?
Ooooohhh suits you sir!
You’re the king of dandys Monsieur le Sapeur
poser, pimp, hillbilly or hippster
Show me how you, show me how to

Chorus
Dress up like you want to
Like you and only you know how
Dress up like you want to
The worlds a stage so play your part
Dress up or go naked,
you know you know you cant fake it
Dress up as you like it
you know you know that you’re worth it.

Dress up Yeah
you gotta dress on up gotta dress on up now
Dress up Yeah
you gotta dress on up gotta dress on up now
Dress up Yeah
you gotta dress on up gotta dress on up now
Dress up Yeah
you gotta dress on up gotta dress on up now

Chorus
Track Name: Soulbowl
Chorus
What if you spill your soul
where would you wanna go
how you gonna get it back
Hurry Hurry your time is up
(Dont you spill your soulbowl)
What if you spill your soul
where would you wanna go
how you gonna get it back
Your time is running out by the end of this track.

1.Vers
From afar you hear this locomotion
Waves of sound fill your ears with steady motion
You loose control it’s like a magic potion.
It’s calling your name from the bottom of the ocean.
You dive in and it fills your heart
No it’s not the end, it’s a brand new start
It’s got you surrounded from head to toe
You hold it in your arms this eternal glow

2. Vers
From within you hear a burning roar,
A sound so old, you know you’ve heard it before.
A sea of voices echoes in space
everything is everywhere, still all in one place
You start to shiver, turn from hot to cold
A moment so precious so hard to hold
Never in your life you felt so whole
Take it all in and refill your soulbowl.
