House with a swing

So when doing my usual perusing of the internetz for more house music I stumbled upon something called "electro-swing". It's a genre of house music and the name is sort of self-explanatory. Electro-swing (or swing-house) is a wondrous mixture of old 20s-40s swing, jazz, bop, charleston, you name it + house music. The product is highly amusing and dance inducing. Actually, you'll probably recognise the sound as the megahit "We No Speak Americano" by Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP was heavily inspired by it.

Have a listen to some swing-house!

If you like what you hear and want to hear more you could check out reddit's own swing-house page for ideas and inspiration.
