We are very excited to bring you this excellent mix from a young & talented DJ we want you to discover ! Oscar Maria started to DJ one and a half year ago. Besides the fact he plays music very well and has a great tracklist selection the boy writes english very well … Much better than I do ;-)
I’ve been listening to Jazz and Swing from when I was a little kid on, since my mom’s quite into it. I would’ve never had the idea of combining the both ob Jazz and Electronic music. That was until about a year ago when my mom told me to put on some music. As i was flickin through her Albums I hit upon a one called Keep It Unreal.. a one we should all know!
Its not exactly an electro-swing record but it included “Get a Move On” which totally struck me. From then on I’ve been obsessed with this sound.
What is Electro Swing for you ?
I feel like mashing up old jazzy elements with todays dance music, gives the listener/dancer a really unique feeling. It reminds us of a time where things seemed to be more original, a time where being individual was maybe a bit easier. And isn’t uniqueness what everybody is striving fort these days? So why not try and flee to another time ?
For me electro-swing is a flirt with a decade, long gone.
