Electro Swing Roundup – May ’15

Swingamajig--2015

Swingamajig 2015

Well what can I say..? I know that we’ve kept banging on about it, but we can truly say that the bar has been raised. Swingamajig has come of age this year and was absolutely fantastic. The atmosphere was stunning and the quality of acts was second to none. Congratulations to the Electric Swing Circus, C@ in the H@, and all the organisers who did such a fantastic job pulling this together. My own highlights? The Dutty Moonshine Big Band absolutely rocked, great to see Chinese Man bring their downtempo hip hop grooves, Elle & the Pocket Belles with Mistatrick, and of course getting to do my own Silverscreen Soundsytem VJ show. If you missed it this year, then put the date in your diary because there is no better festival to choose on the vintage circuit than this.

Right. Let’s hit the music.

Free Music

Top of the class goes to another fantastic and free compilation from Speakeasy Electro Swing in Montreal. Who else gives you this much fresh new content for free? Well done guys. Dive on in and see what goodies you can find!

A modern classic getting tweaked by Phibes:

And your boy Phibes again getting funky with Caro:

Swing? Ghetto? Yep and yep. You know what’s coming…

It’s never a bad time to drop Etta James’ I Just Wanna Make Love to you and even more so with a new C@ in the H@ mashup version:

Deep, sexy and grooving jazzy beats from Frizzo. Very nice.

Mary J Blige – Family Affair (Flavours Remix)

Flav Live 2 copy

With a discography spanning some of the very best glitch hop labels in the world right now, you know you should be paying attention when Canadian producer Flavours drops a new track. This time around however he’s doing things slightly differently. Not only letting loose his awesome future funk / glitch hop reworking of the classic”Family Affair” by Mary J Blige for free download but also a very clever, live turntablism video showcasing the track.

With slick edits, crisp cuts, crunchy beats and kicking more funk than shaolin monk, Flavours rework gets heads nodding and feet moving. A perfect modern day update to a classic.

Ch-ch-ch check out the video below and be sure to head over to his Bandcamp page where you can grab the track on a pay what you want basis, and you want to pay a couple of £/$ right? Thought so. Support independent musicians! You can also grab a load of freebies from his Soundcloud page.
