Alright, it’s 2014. Well, almost. So, what happened in electro swing (that fabulous genre that’s swept Europe, and made a considerable dent in the US) for 2013? Well, feast your ears on these ten wonderful tunes; the best of twenty-thirteen! Twasn’t the best year in history, but for music? Well, it was a GREAT year for music!
Aaaaand, number 10……
incontrol & Wolfgang Lohr – Le Swing Ist King (Original Mix) [Ton liebt Klang]
Moving on, number 9……
alec troniq – Fluffernutter
Something infinitely dope about this one. Just has an excellent flow, an over fun sound. Kind of trippy, kinda wonky, but still poppy and well-accessible, I wish ALL the pop sounded this interesting. A classic tune, to be sure. Nicely done, alex troniq!
Here’s number 8…..
Phil Mac – Puttin On the Ritz
The Woohoo Revue – Fat Tuesday (Sound Nomaden Remix)
Scott Bradlee & Post Modern Jukebox – Thrift Shop (Bart&Baker Electro Swing Club Remix)
Sorry to interrupt, but…
Something about the catchiness and simplicity in this one gets me…
Wolfgang Lohr – Chicken Swings (Original Mix)
Mano Meter – Karussell
jamescurd – With The Dance That You Do
Unsurprisingly, Caravan Palace made the list. ((Of COURSE!)) This time, with Dramophone, off their new album…
Alright, everybody ready? No? Aye, you better get ready! It’s time for number 1 !!! ……
Going from a nice groovin’ hip hop swingin’ vibe into some nice vocals, and even dipping into a nice trippy glitchy/steppy section (while still maintaining a nice mellow groove, somehow) it’s Retrolectro Serial XIIIb (Flash Dance with Lamuzgueule – Gordon):
Sooo… haven’t gotten your electro swing fix yet? Ah, you lovable junkie! Here you go – here’s a mix from a little earlier this year by Caravan Palace, complete with all the housey electro swanga’langin’ tunes you’re going to love :) (or, I hope so anyway. I do!)
For the electro swing producer>>> here are some electro swing samples. Vol 3 is now available (below) and volume 2 is also available on this site..
…Well, I hope you enjoyed this post. Or, if you didn’t, feel free to drop by and drop a friendly dose of anger in the comments section, I’d love to hear from ya! :) Happy new year everyone!! :-)
