Legendary turntablist and former X-Ecutioners member DJ Rob Swift has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund his next album.
 
His first full-length release in over five years, X-Files: Lost & Deleted is a collection of rare and remixed songs featuring artists such as Large Professor and J-Live.
 
“Unlike other best of albums, this LP just doesn’t contain an assortment of music of mine from various solo projects,” Swift’s Kickstarter page says. “What you’ll be listening to on X-Files: Lost & Deleted is a collection of fresh and new takes on my best work.”
 
The campaign offers a variety of rewards in exchange for pledges, ranging from a digital download with a personal thank you email to a live DJ performance.
 
As of right now, Swift has raised over $6,271 since launching the campaign last week. However, he still needs $3,729 to reach his $10,000 goal.
