 On his first album Souled Out, Vol. One: Daze Gone Bye Swaz worked with producers Hugh Lake, Chasm & Momo of Diafrix to create a release founded in the soulful boom bap of his youth with a progressive approach that channels influences from an array of musical sources and life experiences.
 “Swaz effortlessly fuses genres” - Stimulate Your Soul
 “Sonically his latest music is uplifting and empowering, being deliberately constructed from a recipe of cross-pollinated productions, lyrics, emotions and imagery” - AmNplify 
 “Swaz Benjamin is a distinctly Australian hip hop talent. On ‘Coaster Lines’ he offers bars about summer days, and ‘the great southern land’; along with sunny production to match, plucky acoustic guitar, simple percussion and colloquial delivery. The laid back feel of this track is perhaps its best quality.” - Speaker TV
