Ladies and Gentlemen, It is with great pleasure that we announce that the whole Swing Rebellion Team will be performing at the Boomtown Fair 2012. We will spread the Electro Swing love over various stages, sharing our music with all those who enjoy it. If you would like to learn more about the Boomtown Fair head on over to their Homepage  Boomtown Fair – Quite simply the UK’s maddest city

White Mink – Jubilee Electro Swing Speakeasy

White Mink : Black Cotton

The chances are you have heard of these guys before – with (what I think is) the first UK Electro Swing Compilation, and some of the biggest Electro Swing nights in the UK, White Mink is one of the most successful Electro Swing brands worldwide.

Tonight they are bringing Parov Stelar to London in Koko (its sold out, sorry!) but this weekend they are throwing a Jubilee party, Saturday 2nd June 2012 at The Bedroom Bar – Shoreditch. With 3 rooms of Electro Swing Speakeasy Spectacular, you can expect the best sounds and visuals of the genre with smoking room, walkabout cabaret, live music and the best lindy-hopping, swing dancers and so much more!

White Mink

Featuring some of the hottest Electro Swing acts including Sound Assembly – a personal favourite of mine and stunning live band, along with -DJs, VJs and some of the best Lindy Hoppers that London has to offer. Get ready for a massive Vintage Mash UP – hopefully we will see you there!

 

The Electric Empire – Electro Swing in London Town

If you havent heard already there is a new Electro Swing night in London town, its called Electric Empire. Its mission is to showcase the best in the scene and fuse turntablists with live musicians, thus creating Decks Drums Swing ‘n’ Bass!

So far there have already been two parties featuring the likes of Dutty Moonshine, JFB, Chris Tofu, Future Swing Stories and Odjbox.

The next night drops this Saturday, May 26th and promises to be the biggest party yet! You could say this is the creme de la creme of the Electro Swing scene right now. Topping the bill will be none other than 3 x DMC World scratching Champion DJ Switch, to say this guy is very good is a massive understatement, he’s a freakin genius! He’s the Mozart of turntables quite literally.

Electric Empire are fully behind the mixup of electric trickery and live music, the second act originating from Birmingham are a very good example of this. Having won best live act at the Electro Swing Peoples Favourite Awards, Electric Swing Circus are quite simply the best at what they are doing! These guys are a 6 piece swing band of epic proportions, they promise to bring an un-missible show which will be a guaranteed party starter. If you live in London and you haven’t seen these guys yet make sure you get your bad self down to this!

It seems you have to of won an award to play at this night, which is why there is no surprise for the the next act. C@ in the H@ again also originates from Birmingham and recently was announced as one of the winners of best remix for Swing Republics track Crazy in Love. Similar to Switch in his approach, this swing set is going to be quite varied i’m sure. If you’re not dancing by this point the C@ in the H@ will swing you into shape!
