Electro swing is an emerging genre of music, combining samples from genres such as swing, jazz, and big band with EDM, house, hip-hop, and so on. The result? Incredibly catchy.

  • The battle theme for OFF, "Pepper Steak," is done in this style.
  • Most of Odjbox's works
  • Scatman John (arguably an Ur-Example, as his fusion of scat-based jazz with Europop/Eurodance attained novel popularity in the 90s, at least a full decade before the genre's true emergence)
