Cup of Jazz, Berlin, GERMANY electroswing, house swing.
Cup of Jazz started djing in Berlin Bars and Clubs in 2005 – with a record by Fred Astaire. Maybe that’s why Jazz became a major influence for him. When we got in contact he told me he writing and article about Electro Swing in the online edition of Die Zeit.
What is Electro Swing for You ?
Electroswing is not a hype. It’s a new genre, based on a constantly growing scene of musicians and producers, bringing together handmade jazz and swing sounds (from present or past) with electronically generated beats, no matter if they are based on Hiphop, Drum’n’Bass, House or Dubstep. It’s grounded. It’s not the plastic sound that we are used to from the pop-charts. It’s breathing because you hear live instruments in it. It brings back melody into techno and warmth to the dancefloor.
