Caravan Palace - Black Betty

Such a great Electro Swing Cover by Caravan Palace of the all time classic "Black Betty"!

Boogie Belgique - Volta

"Every Time" is my favorite tune from the new Boogie Belgique Album called "Volta".
The belgian producer is one of the very few out there who manage to combine old swing samples and relaxed downbeats into a melancholic vintage soundscape. If you like Trip Hop with some influences of Swing and Jazz, this one is a must hear! Released 23 September 2016 on Cold Busted.

The Blue Square - Mama feat. Esterina

Athens-based, The Blue Square is a project of Radim and Radical, two producers exploring the boundaries between hip-hop (mainly instrumental), trip-hop and nu-jazz. With Wax Tailor, Bonobo and Flying Lotus among their favorite artists, they started their career six years ago investigating their own sound equally inspired by the atmosphere of film noir, exotica and spy movies of the past. The debut album "The Blue Square" is out now including the beautiful swingy Downbeat track called "Mama" that features vocals of Esterina.

Weval - Weval

The debut album of the duo Weval, based in Amsterdam is one of the most surprising electronic releases of 2016. These young guys created a great mix of slightly detuned vintage synths, indie vocals and rolling drum beats. To get an impression of their sound you can have a listen to "The Battle" here on soundcloud.

Mammal Hands - Floa

This is an album I listened to on many of my train rides last year. Mammal Hands released their second album "Floa" on Gondwana on 27.05.2016. It is one of these very few wonderful New Jazz releases that perfectly suits my taste. Have a listen and hopefully you'll love it too!

KMLN - Sabilu EP

Another great release on SolSelectas comes from KMLN. My personal favorite version is the Schon Long Remix of the track "Sabilu" with its pumping bassline.
