Shwayze & Cisco

Shwayze & Cisco Adler are a classic combo. Like California and sunshine, cars and girls, music and action sports, shades and baseball caps, lifestyle and culture. With two major label albums under their belt, literally thousands of tours, a hit MTV reality series in Buzzin' and Bananabeat, a burgeoning one-stop artist collective, which includes recording and TV production facilities, as well as divisions for Internet andstreet marketing, brand alliances, tour promotion, management and booking, Cisco Adler and musical partner Shwayze are at the forefront of a self-created empire. Their new album, Island in the Sun, their first truly independent album, the follow-up to 2008's self-titled debut on Suretone/Interscope (including thesummertime anthems, "Buzzin'" and "Corona and Lime") and 2009's edgy, experimental electro-rock release Let It Beat (spawning the club banger, "Gut U Home" and "Livin' ItUp" along with cameos from Snoop Dogg, The Cars' Ric Ocasek and The Knux). ...show more

The duo have now adopted the name Shwayze & Cisco to better express the collaboration between the two, which began a little more than three years ago, when the artist formerly known as Aaron Smith jumped on-stage with Adler during a Whitestar show and began freestyling. "We've both grown from then," says Cisco, whos been producing for a long list of artists and recently started a new band called Cisco Adler and The Pigeons, while Shwayze put out a mixtape under his given name and founded Feel Good Music. "We were really just two stoned dudes in a Malibu studio having fun and making music as a soundtrack. We didn't even realize we were a duo when we first started." "The core of this record was just Cisco and I jamming together," confirms Shwayze.

"The little break we took from each other made us eachstronger in our individual skills. I think we're back to where we were when we started, before we even had a record deal. I wanted to call us this from day one. It's a true representation of what it really is." The album includes the title track and "Butterflies," two songs first previewed on The W's free mixtape releases earlier this year. ...show less
