Electro Swing

Have been up all night (what I will regret soon) digging through my music collection.
Stumbled accross six electro swing pieces. Completly new to this genre and looking for more. Are there any artists I should know or just go for the YouTube rabbit hole approach?

I just saw Caravan Palace live in oakland :D


^THis, but for lone digger, use this one:

The furry music video is... disturbing.


Got some GEMA in my way to watch anything. I could log into my VPN for YouTube but whatever.

search on youtube for free download and the type of music you want is what i do

I am mostly looking for music on YouTube, then go to Bandcamp or Amazon and spend money on it.

I haven't listened to all of Caravan Palace's music, but this is my favorite track of theirs thus far:

So why not check out some musicians who offer free music? I never said to only download the music. Bands like metallica have away free music when they first started, and I think they made a couple dollars on the way to where ever they are at now.

So I'm pretty big into Electro Swing. Caravan Palace is without a doubt the biggest artist in this genre. Some of their live performances are a ton of fun to watch.

Closely following Caravan Palace in popularity would be Parov Stelar. A couple of songs from this artist have gone nuts thanks to youtube. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of them due to their heavy use of samples but it's all just personal preference.

One of my personal favourites would have to be Tape Five. I'm not a huge fan of their newer stuff but the album "Tonight Josephine!" has a ton of great stuff in it.

An artist I found relatively recently is Dirty Honkers. A few of their songs are incredibly catchy.

The Correspondents is by far the most divergent from the genre but man do I love them. I don't know how Electro Swing-y some of their stuff is but I have a ridiculous amount of replays on their songs in Google Play Music.

Keep in mind that Electro Swing is still incredibly new as far as genres go so there are a ton of incredibly talented artists popping up all over the place to keep an eye out for.

Can't talk about Electro Swing without mentioning Parov Stelar.
Wiki quote: "Parov Stelar was among the first who produced electronic swing music in Europe."

Gramatik is not known for Electro Swing per se, but this one fits the genre quite well.
Gramatik - Hit That Jive

And I quite like this next one, even though it's a an acquired taste as it is more monotone than some of the other tracks in this thread.
