A BRIEF HISTORY OF SWING

90 years and counting: The verb ‘to swing’ is used as a term of praise for a style of musical performance that has a strong rhythmic ‘groove’ or drive. Swing music, also know as ‘Swing Jazz’ or simply ‘Swing’, is a form of jazz music that developed in the late 1920’s & early 1930’s becoming a distinctive style by 1935 in the United States and later across the world. Early swing stars included Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman, Cab Callaway & Duke Ellington followed by the ‘Big Band’ swing era of Glenn Miller, then later singers like Frank Sinatra, & Peggy Lee continued the ‘Swing Thing’.

By the early 1990’s swing samples & influences were becoming popular and were beginning to appear on ‘Acid Jazz’, ‘Nu- Jazz’ & ‘Lounge’ tracks. In 2004 Parov Stelar released the first ‘Electro Swing’ on his own label, triggering a boom of ‘Electro Swing’ dj’s, producers & bands like ‘Caravan Palace’. Between 2008- 2010 Wagram (France), Freshly Squeezed Music (UK) & other labels associated with ‘Electro Swing’ released a succession of very popular compilations, including tracks from some of the freshest & brightest talent. 2009 - 2010 saw the first ‘Electro Swing Clubs’ opening in London, Paris, Zurich, Utrecht & Antwerp with further clubs opening in USA, Canada & Asia as a new ‘Swing Generation’ was born.

Circus

Electric Swing Circus

Der Electric Swing Circus ist eine 6-köpfige Kapelle aus England. Sie verstehen es, die virtuosen Jazz & Swing Elemente aus den verruchten 20-er Jahren mit den Beats der heutigen Clubs live auf die Bühne zu bringen.

Mit explosiven Sound, der durch die Zeit zurück hallt, geht der Electric Swing Circus ihren Weg durch alle Genres! Breakbeat und House, Reggae und Dubstep, alle mit ihren eigenen einzigartigen Stil & Charme des good ol' Swing!

In nur zwei Jahren hat sich die Band zum heissesten Live-Act in England hochgemausert und ist heute ein fester Bestandteil der Festivals rund um Europa. “One of the highlights of Glastonbury Festival…” – Official Glastonbury Guide 2013

Wir freuen uns, dass es endlich mit dem Terminplan und dem Electro Swing Club gepasst hat und wir die Band im SUD / Komplex Klub begrüssen dürfen. Geschätzte Damen und Herren, halten Sie Ihre Hüte fest - der Zirkus ist in der Stadt!
