This show is a special episode (No. 91) divided into 2 parts. It’s A BRIEF HISTORY OF ELECTRO SWING charting a chronological course from the earliest and most influential records up to the present date (Autumn 2013).
Freshly Squeezed Music (and label boss Nick Hollywood) are both well qualified to guide us through this journey having been described by Mixmag as “world leaders in putting a modern dance music spin on vintage records”. Through the label they have been part of some of the most significant recent records in the genre including White Mink, Black Cotton, Swing Republic, Electro Blues, JFB’s Swing EPs, founding the Electro Swing club, Swingrowers, Jem Stone, donJohnston, The Correspondents, Got K.D.S., Kid Kasino and many more.
