Mix #126: The Global Swing Conspiracy

Global Swing Conspiracy

Behind those feel-good, bouncy Electro Swing tracks that we all love there is a hidden land of music. A different type of Swing. A darker, more bass-heavy type of Electro Swing. This mix is for those who dare to enter. Don’t say I didn’t warn you…

All joking aside: This mix is somewhat different from the other Electro Swing mixes I have done before. This Glitch-Hop-influenced style seems to be more popular in the UK than anywhere else. As I mostly go to parties in Germany, I noticed that the style that is typically played in Germany (and in most other countries, as far as I can tell) is a bit more tame. While most of the world seems to prefer an emphasis on straight beats and melodies I have the impression that UK producers, DJs and dancers prefer broken beats, heavy basslines and wobble sounds instead. Personally, I enjoy both depending on my current mood – I just find it interesting to note how perception of music can be so different.
