2012 is a fantastic year for Electro Swing releases, not so song ago Caravan Palace released PANIC, and now its Parov’s turn to put his hat into the ring with THE PRINCESS. Soon to go on tour, and playing London May 31st along with festivals like Beatherder this summer is going to be huge! We’ll be getting our hands on a copy as soon as possible – reviews will be on their way….
The concept was to present a 6 minute mix- ideally with a supporting video which represents why you’d be the ideal person to win the set. We have to say, the concept was brilliant. Squeezing your creative best into 6 minutes really made all that entered (including the swing rebellion team in various forms!) up their game to create something really special.
Last week they announced the winner as Wolfie Razzmatazz- we thought we’d share his entry with you so you can see why- it really is something special…
Well done Wolfie!
Enjoy – Madame Electrifie x

Everyone loves free stuff, and we’ve got a bucket load of it here for you now. These tracks all come from London based duo Skeewiff. No strangers to the music scene, they’ve been signing record deals since 1999, and are also the founders of independent label Jalapeno Records. The pair are very kindly giving away 9 of their tracks over on their Soundcloud page so we suggest you go and grab them quickly, before they come to their senses and start making you pay for them

In the first podcast I mentioned a new artist I recently discovered called Restless Leg Syndrome. ”The concept behind their joint-venture is quite simple: Take an old genre of music, sample and flip it into dancefloor-ready beats, from HipHop to House. In the case of their debut EP “Swapping Swingers” the focus is on the Swinging 1920s”. The trio are giving their latest EP away for free (or small donation) on digital download so make sure to bag yourself a copy. Of course, if you’d like to get your hands on the vinyl be quick about it as there are only 13 copies left of the limited edition pressing!
