iTunes 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

Awesome.

Shwayze is really, really cool. I love how there's guitar and hip hop together. Roamin', Corona and Lime, Buzzin', Don't Be Shy, James Brown Is Dead, Mary Jane, and High Together are the best and m favorites. Shwayze is really the new thing, and this album will florish. It's bound for the top, and totally worth the money. ~Sara P.S. If you're only gonna get a couple songs, check out Roamin' and Buzzin' and Corona and Lime.

shwayze is the man.

some great songs on this debut album. roamin' - nice keyboard-driven song. 4.5 / 5 lazy days - one of my favorites, a very laid back song. 5 / 5 corona and lime - great chorus, a great summer song. 5 / 5 buzzin' - probably my favorite song of the year. shwayze rocks this one. 5 / 5 don't be shy - not a terrible song, but not one of the best. 3 / 5 hollywood - pretty boring song. nice lyrics though. 3 / 5 polaroid - great story-telling lyrics on this one. 4 / 5 james brown is dead - he knows what he's saying here plus a great vocal performance. 4 / 5 lost my mind - hate the beat, but some pretty good rhyming by shwayze. 2.5 / 5 mary jane - a nice love song, cisco's best performance. 4 / 5 lazy susan - awesome song. cisco and shwayze both contribute and it turns out crazy sweet. 5 / 5 flashlight - pretty bad song up until dave navarro's guitar solo. that is one epic solo. 3.5 / 5 high together - this one's ok. a very minimalist beat but shwayze rocks it (almost) a cappela at the beginning.

YEAH!

Shwayze is the best of all. I heard Buzzin in Feb. and decided to buy it. The album is just as good. And besides, shwayze is a cool name! SHWAAAAAYYZE!

Biography

Born: 1986 in Malibu, CA

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...
