Banja, Sidney, AUSTRALIA Electro Swing, Hip Hop, Break. Banja is Brian a 29 years old DJ from Paris France, currently living in Sydney Australia. He has been interested in different styles of music since his young days and finally got around to getting himself some decks to mix for fun after moving to Australia. Originally playing party electronic music like drum and bass, ragga jungle or psytrance, he got into electroswing after discovering bands like Caravan Palace. Music is for having fun and the blend of the old sounds with electronic beats seemed like a perfect way to do just that. Since then he’s been exploring the depths of the electroswing world in search of tunes that bring you into a hip shaking frenzy and put a big grin on your face.
What is Electro Swing for you Banja ?
To me Electroswing is a good blend of the ages, the feel of the old days gracefully entangled with today’s beats. It’s positive music that makes you want to dance, breaks the barriers of genres and seduces listeners of all ages using warm, classy sounds with a vintage feel and polishing them with a new feel. In the same way that swing music was a way for people to break the race and culture barrier in the 30s and 40s, today electro swing gets people who wouldn’t usually be in the same club to happily share the dancefloor. My favorite part about it: it puts a big smile on my face !
