Electro Swing Roundup – March ’15

Prohibition Manchester Zombie Shack DJR

Right then. We’re back on time again. Get in. I’m going to keep the waffle short this month and just get plenty of good new tunes for you all to get into your lives.

If you’re in Manchester at the end of the month I’ll be joining the Prohibition crew at the Zombie Shack. I’m going to be performing my new VJ set – the Silver Screen Soundsystem alongside Emma Clair, Sly Fandango, God Kompex and Fuzzy Logic. Come get your swing on!

Free Music

First off this lovely slice of cheerful summer swing. Spiffing! Where’s my cocktail?

Always happy to see Phil Mac turn up on the feed with a new freebie:

Jenova Collective getting back on the swing & bass tip. Always great.

Funky beats and nice rhymes. Yep, forget that though, two words for you…

Jazz. Flute.

Classic soul given the bass treatment by JPOD:

Always love getting new crazy balkan beats from Shazalakazoo:


Otis Redding’s classic given a tweak.

Downbeat jazzy stylings:

Eclectic Mick still singlehandedly pushing the electro-blues feel:

Downbeat swing-hop:

Chilled jazzy house from Frizzo:

James Brown gone glitch:

Nina Simone. Made sad.


New Releases

Elle & the Pocket Belles – Swingin Together

Ragtime Records have put together a tidy package of remixes of Elle & The Pocket Belles. Included are C@ In The H@ with a funky uplifting mix, Odjbox with a funky version that drops into drum & bass towards the end, and Mistatrick that hits drum & bass throughout. Get it from the 11th of March at Juno.

Gentlemen Callers of LA – God Almighty Is Gonna Cut You Down

Love this. Quality retro stylings out on Green Queen. Although case in point, since Moby got on remixing this first does that mean he should also be credited with inventing electro-blues? Anyway it’s an essential release. Out on Juno.

Bart & Baker – Black Caffeine (Bart & Baker Remix)

Also on Green Queen is this new one from Bart & Baker. Get it from Juno.

Dirty Honkers – Just A Taste EP

Good to see Germanys Dirty Honkers have new EP out at Juno. Five tracks, here’s a taste:

Kalletti Klub – Polarlicht

Quality jazzy house style out on Germanys Ton Liebt Klang. Mixes on the release from Wolfgang Lohr, Phos Toni and Drauf & Dran. Available from Beatport

DJ Mixes

More funky than swingy this but I do like the way they’ve been messing with Cee-Roos quality output. Great stuff:

Phat Sam’s mix recorded live from Hot Club De Swing, Birmingham on Valentines Day:

That’s it. See you in a month! If you’ve got anything you’d like included in future roundups hit me up on soundcloud.
