Electro Swing and Young Swing

Keywords might help to keep the overview. Maybe in the cases below some keywords are helpful. With the keyword Electro Swing a series of new and interesting Jazz pieces have been published. Their common approach is to combine club music, Hip Hop and Pop with the sound of the 1920s and 1930s. On Facebook you’ll even find an own group Electro Swing (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Electro-Swing/245152995935). Individual musicians and DJs experiment with the diverse styles. Although it sounds familiar and exciting, dancing to this music could be an experiment as well. Easy to dance to is ‘Puttin’ on the Ritz’, a remix from Club des Belugas (http://www.chinchin-records.com/index.php?id=40). A kind of Django Reinhardt in the Disco is ‘Hold the Night’ from Lyre Le Temps (http://www.lyreletemps.com/). Maybe a little challenge as a Balboa.Ulf Lindemann lives as an artist in Vienna. As dunkelbunt (http://www.dunkelbunt.tk/) he mixes Gypsy-Jazz with the music of South-East Europe. Very nice to dance to is his ‘Cinnamon Girl’.Kormac, is a Big Band as well as a group of DJs. An unusual kind of Balboa provides ‘Scratchin’ Marchin’ issued in 2007 (http://www.myspace.com/djkormac). A keyword I dreamed up is Young Swing: A couple of young Jazz musicians from the region of Bodensee – children even – have a completely different approach to interpret Swing music. I’m talking about the well known Swing Kids around Dai Kimoto. They really extraxt the joy of life in the directest way from the original Swing and perfectly present it on stage – a highlight for every swing dancer. They’ll do so again on Good Saturday at IsThereHop in Zurich. I’ll give a taste of it – from CD only – one week before at SwingFLOOR.These and other tunes will be played at SwingFLOOR Silbando.
