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!
