What is Electro Swing for you ?
There are three aspects of Electro Swing for us:
Music: Electro Swing is the generic term for different music styles, such as HipHop, Dubstep, House etc.; each combined with swingin tunes.
Artistic Setting: deco stuff, dancing lessons, suits and dresses, other fashion
Our definition: Eclectic dance moves, party as if there is no morning, beautiful people and last but not least swingin sounds, that are reminding us of the history and the origin of swing in the afro-american communities, in the 20s/ 30s and also of the german Swing kids, who were persecuted by the Nazis, because of their lifestyle and music.
Having said that, now is the time to push the PLAY button, seat back, put on your dancin’ shoes an enjoy this terrific mix!
