I'm happy to introduce to you a new Electro Swing Compilation compiled by Gülbahar Kültür and DJ Globalution. It's called "The Electro Swing Revolution", a double CD, that gives the Electro Swing scene a great start into 2011. On the first CD, "Dance, dance, dance" you will find the latest hits and the absolute crackers of the new Swing-scene: Riva Starr, Kormac, Caro Emerald, Gramophonedzie, Jazzbit and the ingenious Movits from Sweden. The usual suspects, such as Parov Stelar, Caravan Palace and Tape Five, are also represented. The 2nd CD's entertaining selection of World Swing includes four previously unpublished pieces. So we find absolute classics like "Boum" of the French chansonnier Charles Trenet from the year 1937 and the unforgettable Swing-icon Fred Astaire, enchanting with its charming velvety voice in "Shall We Dance". As part of the Haferflocken Swingers, the young Berlin Trio Dirty Honkers is represented twice and is considered to be one of the most innovative interpreters of Swing. The British DJ, musician and producer Max Pashm plays his rousing instrumental "Fantasy". It's an "Electro-Swing" par excellence and a perfect dancefloor-filler, which is published for the first time on "The Electro Swing Revolution". This is a wonderful release for all you Electro Swingers out there !
