After graduating from high school, G. Pal stepped in a direction away from music for about 4 years. So instead, he chose to pursue the subject of physics. While in the University, G. Pal slowly drifted back to his true passion, musical production. If it wasn’t for this almost complete musical void G. Pal may never have gotten so determined to earn a living producing music. After a few years of developing his skills composing and producing tracks, G. Pal decided to move to New York City so that he could pursue a degree in music technology. According to G. Pal, he would have stayed in Greece, but not one of the schools offered a degree similar to the one available through NYU.
After all, there can’t be a better time to get a degree in music technology. This educational experience, combined with his own interest in studio gear, hardware and software puts George way ahead of your average dance music producer. While attending NYU, George started shopping his tracks around the end of 1997. About a year later, a decent amount of respectable labels were knocking on his door. Soon after his first commercial record release, a double pack on the UK’s prestigious Low Pressings label, he started preparing material for labels. On a cold night in November at Mike Bryant’s Friday night party, G.Pal brought a demo down for Plastic City A+R Rick Salzer. After some small discussions, both parties agreed that G. Pal should join the UCMG NY artist roster. Since then he released many singles for Plastic City and the critically acclaimed album ‘Life by G.Pal’. George had to leave New York City after six years of studying at NYU, to join the Greek military force for two years.
At that time Swift recordings was founded as a joint effort by him and UCMGNY as an outlet for his club-minded tribal and progressive productions. Since its inception, Swift was steadily gained momentum and created quite a buzz within the dance music community. George after completed his military service his focus was on building Swift into the label he has envisioned all along. Swift records would no longer be a part of UCMGNY, as George decided to run the label by himself from his own country Greece. Swift was then globally distributed by Intergroove UK.
