Mortisville – Contraband, Melbourne, Australia swing house, techno. I’m proud to present you this special episode mixed by Mortisville : This is Electro Swing Vol.3: Contraband
It’s funny because the name of this podcast and Mortisville Mix Series are similar!!!
Well.. this is Electro Swing :) A great mix and a great project.
About The Series
TIES (This Is Electro-Swing) is an amalgamation of all the Electro Swing tracks that I like to listen to and play out in clubs, and festivals. The series started life over 2 years ago and was first intended as a tool to show people in Australia about electro-swing in its many styles and facets.
Needless to say, a lot has happened in 2 years and Electro Swing has permeated deep into both the Australian music scene and the entire globe. It’s influences have been felt in glich-hop, techno, house, breaks and in varying degrees’s almost every genre and sub genre currently labelled today.
In the TIES 3′, I have striven to once again show the many different types of music associated with the term, ranging from 100 to 128 bpm, many of these tracks have come to form a huge part of my life and I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I do.
A Final Word
Well thats it and having finally finished, I think its certainly time for a well deserved glass or 3 of Shiraz. It has been an absolute joy to do this write up for electro-swing.com and I feel I have learned so much whilst doing this project. Making the mix itself was always going to be a huge undertaking, the massive number of electro-swing tracks around now and the sheer multitude of genres they now exist in, makes creating a mix that reflects the entire burgeoning scene no mean feat. In the end I picked the tracks and artists for whom I have the most admiration, there are many more that I would have added but in the end I had to stop somewhere.
