Electro Swing is a musical genre combining the influence of (most commonly) vintage swing with contemporary production techniques or styles - the 'electro' part of the name. This might include house, hip hop, EDM or other predominantly computer-produced music but might also encompass anything contemporary such as scratching with an otherwise all-live band. The genre often incorporates loops, samples or melodies that deliberately reference a sound-pallet (to the inclusion therefore of the dance moves and fashions) from the classic swing, jazz and big band era. Typically this is the period from the mid 1920s to the late 1940s and would include music by Duke Ellington, Django Reinhardt, Cab Calloway, Louis Armstrong and Benny Goodman among many others. Successful examples of the genre create a modern and dance-floor focussed sound that is more readily accessible to the modern ear but that also retains the feeling of live brass and the energetic excitement of the early swing recordings.
