filmmaker's note
Having got his start as a DJ at age 12 from watching his father DJ latin parties and older brother introduce him to Hip Hop, Jackson Heights native Robert Aguilar AKA Rob Swift pursued his love for music and joined the groundbreaking turntablist crew the X-Men aka X-ecutioners (Roc Raida, Total Eclipse, and Mista Sinista) in 1991. Within a year of joining the X, he won the coveted DMC East Coast title, becoming world renowned DJ. In 2001, Rob Swift was featured in the DJ documentary SCRATCH (Palm Pictures). He has appeared on ESPN, The Late Show with David Letterman, and even Sesame Street. In 2008, Rob was the first Hip Hop DJ invited to perform at the Savannah, Georgia Jazz Festival. He has collaborated with artists from many genres including Blue Man Group, Herbie Hancock, Bob James, Linkin Park, Good Charlotte, Dan The Automator, Fat Joe, Cypress Hill and many others. DJ Rob Swift is always in perpetual motion, pushing the boundaries of what he does and connecting with audiences through the back and forth movement of his hands.
