Editors’ Notes

This collaboration between former reality show and Whitestarr rocker Cisco Adler (son of producer Lou) and his Malibu-based buddy Aaron Smith, now Shwayze, came together as an MTV reality show (“Buzzin’”) and a debut album that’s knee-deep in soothing California grooves and a sunshine-burnished philosophy that rarely turns sour. “Hollywood” says it “ain’t no place for lovers anymore” and plays to a melancholy tune, though why remains a question, since the smooth, drifting hip-hop and lite-R&B chill of “Roamin’,” “Lazy Days,” “Buzzin,’” and “Corona and Lime” suggest these two young men have the world by the tail and are living the American Dream. If they can’t represent the bright side of Hollywood, then who? The duo don’t attempt anything earth-shattering here — even the boldly titled “James Brown is Dead” keeps a respectful grace to it — but rather employ simple, repetitive melodies that make an immediate impression. For a dose of hard rock, they add ex-Jane’s Addiction guitarist (and reality show veteran himself) Dave Navarro to the slightly more rugged “Flashlight.” Mostly, though, it’s Jimmy Buffett for the hip-hop generation.

Customer Reviews

Shwayze is the Real Deal

With their acoustic twist in hip hop, and addicting lyrics and riffs, its no wonder Shwayze is the biggest transformation in the music industry since Michael Jackson! TOP 3 MUST BUYS: (1)Corona and Lime is without a doubt my first choice because of the, like I mentioned, addicting lyrics and Cisco's voice in this song brightens up my day. (2) Polaroid is a really good song and it has an electric guitar playing with the lyrics instead of an acoustic, which Shwayze pulled off really well. (3) Buzzin'. What can i say about this song? It's their debut single--you gotta love it! The only thing I would say that's a flaw with Shwayze is they sing about WEED and smoking too much, but besides that, a great album with overall great songs. Now click BUY ALBUM!

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Although the Jamie Kennedy movie Malibu's Most Wanted posited that the beachside Los Angeles suburb is so upper class and lily white that the only rappers it can produce are rich teenagers fronting gangsta poses, real-life Malibu resident Shwayze begs to differ. He's in touch enough with movie culture that his handle is a corruption of the surname of the star of Dirty Dancing and Roadhouse, and his musical mentor is Cisco Adler, son of multi-millionaire record producer Lou Adler, most notorious for...
