Even if it sounds new, Electroswing has been around at least since 2009, when the first White Mink: Black Cotton compilation came out and really set the genre on fire. Since then tons of electronic gurus have taken their turns at turning swing classics into Swing-Hop club tunes, and often with great success. It took awhile, but I’ve compiled enough music for a dedicated electro-show featuring electroswing, electroblues, swing-hop, and probably some other sub-genres as well. It’s a change of pace from the regular show, and we’ll be back to “regular” next week, but in the meantime, enjoy!
Every once in a while a DJ falls down the “new music” rabbit hole and, hours and many dollars later, emerges with new tracks to delight and amaze! Some of the new tracks I picked up I am saving for a future show focused on the “electroswing” genre (so stay tuned!) but I’ve got some new stuff that I’m excited to share in this episode too, including tracks from Monkey Doo, Davina and the Vagabonds, Combo Royale, and others!
It’s the first show of winter quarter. Let’s get things started on the right foot!
Some great music to swing us into the new year. I hope that 2020 treats you well and that, if you made any resolutions, they involve more dancing and more great music.
My own resolution involves making more music and other kinds of art, and you can follow those efforts, if you want, over here.
Did Santa bring you all the swing you wanted for Christmas? No!? Well, don’t worry, I’ve got you covered with an all-new, all-fabulous Holiday Swing Special.
