Today I'm happy to introduce to you the first Electro Swing Compilation coming out of North America. DJ Eliazar, part of the Speakeasy Electroswing crew has compiled a great album featuring a big bunch of international artists out of the underground E- Swing scene, like Skeewiff, [dunkelbunt], Minimatic, Incontrol, Smokey Joe and the Kid, Defunk and what makes me pretty happy Sound Nomaden. It's also the first Compilation which includes a lot of Swing Hop tracks, making this one definitely a very special selection. Go and grab the whole compilation for free on bandcamp now!
Today I recommend you some Ghetto Funk and Heavy Blues released by Scour Records. I listened to this preview by Waggles this mornin' and it got me right from the first moment! If you like Cypress Hill in a Ghetto Funk Mix check the tune by Basement Freaks, it's pretty fresh as well ;-)
Hola muchachos, today I got this in my mailbox: Kaligola Disco Bazar - Remixed. Good reason to write on my blog again! Kaligola Disco Bazar means italo balkan flavour gets manipulated with the aid of electronic beats, synthetizers and a good dose of creativty. What comes out is a wide range of sonorities, some more dancefloor oriented, others more refined and suitable for a mind-blowing experience. This new album includes remixes by international producers from the balkan beats and world beats scene, such as Dj Stanbul, Økapi, Frohlocker, Solo Moderna, Café de Calaveras, Parlee-vu Gipsy?, Lazarus Sound System and Mondo Cane. The album is released under Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share Alike License and it's available for free!!!
I'm very happy to present you this fresh compilation selected by Pony Montana, wich will be out on 3 march 2013 on London based label Green Queen Music. It is full of rare Electro Swing tracks directly produced for the Club and is featuring artists like Deladap!, Odjbox, James Copeland, Grant Lazlo, Dr. Cat & DJ Pony, Cab Canavaral and Skeewiff as well as a previously unreleased tune by myself. Finally I get my track "Akkordeon Hipsters" out to the world, so grab it and play it out loud ;-)
Hey folks. Today I introduce to you the first compilation fusing Blues and Electro. Brighton based label Freshly Squeezed, wich already had an big impact on the worldwide Electro Swing scene over the last years with their White Mink Series, now created a new phenomenon called "Electro Blues".

It will be out on 25.02.13. Here you can listen to the preview already!
After two succesful EPs and a big dose of remixes Savages y Suefo finally released their debut album! The two members of Savages Y Suefo came from the same eclectic music scene of Budapest. They play downtempo, breaks, jazz, funk, hip-hop, dub, electro swing and all kinds of multikulti-folk in their dj sets and they incorporate the same variety in their own music as well. "Worldstyle" is a colourful, emotional trip inspired by bands like United Future Organization, Up, Bustle & Out, Karminsky Experience, or Thievery Corporation. Have a listen and watch out for their DJ-Sets as well, maybe you can catch them on their upcoming Tour.
Hey folks, here is a new Electro Swing release for your collection by Guido Spumante, Pepe Spumante & Junior Di Luca. "This is...Electro Swing" is bringing on the party like it’s 1929. The album is a hedonistic melting pot of flamboyant electro swing flavoured with camp 60s exotica, cheesy Mariachi pop and oh so kitsch electro mambo. Some good tunes in here, so check it out on soundcloud!
And here is another free compilation! This one has a lot of worldvibes as well and it also has a lot of big electronic beats for your Club. Not all the tunes are first choice tracks but there's still a bunch of very good productions on it. So don't hesitate to grab this comilation by UrbanWorld Records, including artists like Copia Doble Systema, Solo Moderna, SuperPendejos, Dubpiraten and many more...
Another free download for everybody. Oh, all these christmas gifts they sound so good to me. This time it's one by Minimatic, the french "electro-organic hopsoul swinghop mashedblues lowfunk beats"producer. Happy christmas for your ears!
Do you guys also like some smooth jazzy downbeats for the cold season? I do and that's why I just downloaded this free Compilation by Ancient Astronauts based in Cologne. These guys are on the ESL label, wich is the homebase of Thievery Corporation and guess what....this is exactly how the compilation sounds. Funky world sounds fused with Electronica and Hip Hop Beats. Have a listen and grab it for free!
