Big Swing Soundsystem – Got It Covered, Bristol and Cardiff, UK gypsy jazz, electro swing, nu swing. Kaptin and Matt The Hat first started spinning vintage classics, rehashes + remixes back in 2005 but then life sent them in different directions. Matt became the proprietor of an Inflatable Church, whilst Kaptin got all Electronic with his Chrome Kids crew and set about providing DJ sets and mixes for BBC Radio 1, BBC 1Xtra, Glastonbury, Swn, Bestival and Simple Things amongst others.
Some time later, the legendary Chris Tofu introduced them to Electro Swing, and they dusted off their cravats and tweed jackets. Under their new Big Swing Soundsystem moniker, they set off into the wider world together again to unleash their selections of Vintage Music and Vintage Remix onto the unsuspecting public at large.
They have since been found at events such as Electro Swing Club, White Mink (Bath), Hot Club de Swing and Speakeasy, as well as Glastonbury, Bestival, BoomTown Fair, Clockenflap and Festival Number 6, so keep an eye out for when they hit a town or festival near you.
