“An action packed DJ tag team” – Nick Hollywood
Hatching from the Liverpool Speakeasy (speakeasyliverpool.co.uk) in 2011 this feathered duo have taken their unique brand of party music to Secret Garden Party, Boomtown, Shambala, Glade, Beatherder, Festival Number 6 and Swingamajig in summers gone and in venues across the country in the darker months including White Mink, Electro Swing Club London, Madame Electrofie’s Discotech, Vaudeville Rave, Swing City, Cabaret Voltaire, Hot Club de Swing, and Jitterbug.
We try not to get too caught up in genres, but to draw in historical context ‘Electro’ was primarily Electro Funk and signified a time of experimentation within electronic music production in the 1970s/80s. Going back further ‘Swing’ was originally a phrase to describe a jazz musician’s ability to drive a groove when playing. So, by that rationale, ‘Electro Swing’ is groove based electronic music with an emphasis on original style and experimentation. This is clear to see from the vast array of different approaches across the Electro Swing globe.
