electro swing

If LA Music Blog was a fashion magazine, I’d be telling you that the hottest new trend in EDM is a fusion of two distinctly different colors/prints/patterns/decades, namely electro and swing.

This unexpected fusion genre has been on the rise since the proliferation of “We No Speak Americano” in 2010 (notably, French electro swingers Caravan Palace secured primo real estate on the Coachella 2014 lineup poster), and it’s not hard to see why. With its electro-tinged bass beats and peppy sprinkles of swing brass thrown in for good measure, electro swing is as nostalgic as it is refreshingly addictive. Check out some of my favorite picks from the genre and get hooked with me.
