electro-swing.com wrote this review:

Here it is: The first straight Electro Swing – compilation from Austria, selected by two of Vienna´s finest Electro Swing DJs Cab Canavaral and Tony Maroni, known for their Live-DJ-project: The Swing Towers. Tony, a shown expert for great mixing techniques and superfast mash-up gigs and Cab, is not only decorated for his sax-hits-the-dancefloor-gigs, but is also part of Austria´s No.1 authentic swing band “5 in love” and label boss of Billybong records. Together, the two ElectroSwing-enthusiastics also managed to collect Electro Swing tunes from all over the world.

Surprisingly most of the songs on “Swing It!” are based on clear and proper House and Techno Beats. Compared with other compilations like Bart and Baker´s Electro Swing I-V or the consistent vocals-based on the Electro Swing Revolution-series the selection is quite a straight mingle-mangle of known and soon-to-be-famous Swing House representatives and based on around 125 bpm-producing artists. Only at the beginning will you find marked SwingHop such as Dunkelbunt´s “Augen zu und durch”, one of the first SwingHop tracks in German, the NeoSwing version of Bart & Baker´s magnificent “Big Band” or bassy-swinging tunes by the highly skilled Jenova Collective from the UK. The rest of the 26 songs which makes up the sampler are almost exclusively an entire 4-to-the-floor-bash.
For Cab Canavaral this was not necessarily a conscious step: ”It was not planned to have so many housy tracks on the compilation, but it definitely reflects the sound of our “Swing It!”-Events in Vienna.”

Nevertheless the choise is very diverse. Some of the contributions are characterised by vocals in classic verse-refrains structures, some of them are instrumental, while other artists experimented with dub-based or bassy elements. The selection is very consistent and seems well-grounded, but was mainly the artist´s choice, according to Cab: ”Many of the producers, with whom we stood in close contact with, decided themselves, what tracks they wanted to make available. We were surprised that almost every artist we requested for a track agreed to be a part of the project.”

Next to hits of best known genre-giants like Jamie Berry, Skeewiff or Bart & Baker, you will discover many undiscovered gems in the Electro Swing community like the highly active Andrea Fissore with his impelling “My summer vacation”. Noteworthy are the contributions of donJohnston, Natanael Megersa or Incontrol, in addition to the many other high-quality productions.

Fortunately and thanks to the mastering skills of Yossi and Ron, both part of the Israelian project “Segment”, which also appears on the album, most of the productions on the compilation are flawless and on a high technical level.

There will most definitely be a second edition next year, hopefully with even more artists from the flourishing Austrian Electro Swing Community.

Swing Affair by Kiss me Yesterday is out now!!!!

Kiss Me YesterdayOn June 14th our next release will be in the stores like iTunes, beatport, junodownload.
We are proud and happy to release the debut of the Vienna based group KISS ME YESTERDAY called “Swing Affair”.
Here’s a short description:

Once upon a time DJ and electronic artist Paul bumped into two female jazz players. Since that day the stone for KISS ME YESTERDAY was laid and their story is blossoming and evolving.

Paul, with his fancy creative base, plays the funky beats with attention to fine details. Together with Hela’s soft and incisive voice and the lively, virtuoso play with Lisa on her soprano and alto saxophone, the electro swing band created their own, individual sound. Kiss Me Yesterday, who only play live in concerts perform boasting sets with pumping beats alongside swingingly samples, romantic grooves and sweet breaks. Their self-produced tracks leave room for improvisation and allow the audience space to be abso-swingingly free.

Kiss Me Yesterday’s first EP “Swing Affair” perfectly shows their versatile styles and colours. Inspired by both swing and electronic masters, Paul, Hela and Lisa combine their individual stories and music styles into one unique sound experience. Kiss Me Yestereday represents the fusion of a deep love for old skool styles integrated with the moves of the present. Time to shake and swing, honeys!
