Past seasons of Dissect have spoken about Kanye West's Yeezus, Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly and other albums instrumental to hip-hop's culture. Each season delves into the making of the music, as well as adding context to the projects by looking at their impact, both at the time and today.
Speaking about Swimming, host Cole Cuchna says, “Two years in the making, it was an album that would stay true to the video central image of a man entrenched in his own psyche—observing, searching, scrutinizing.
"It was an album that communicates a universal notion of seeking peace amidst the unrelenting currents of emotions. An album whose central symbol is water. The replenishing source of life that can just as easily pull you under. It was Mac Miller’s Swimming."
You can listen to the first episode of this season below. Episode one of this season talks about both Swimming and Circles, as well as the relationship between the two projects. It also covers how Mac discovered his singing voice, Ariana Grande's influence and much, much more.
