Electro swing is an emerging genre of music, combining samples from old-timey genres such as swing, jazz, and big band with more modern genres like Electronic Dance Music, house, and Hip-Hop. The result? Incredibly catchy.
- Eleven Acorn Lane
- Caravan Palace
- C2C (mixed with Trip Hop and Alternative Hip Hop)
- Caro Emerald
- The Correspondents
- Electric Swing Circus
- FAKE TYPE.
- Parov Stelar (Trope Maker)
- Boogie Belgique
- The (Real) Tuesday Weld (frontman Stephen Coats refers to their style as "antique beat")
- Mr. Scruff (an Ur-Example alongside Scatman John, as his experimentation with nu jazz with Trip Hop beats arguably laid the foundation for modern electro swing)
- Tape Five
- Yolanda Be Cool (Trope Codifier with their hit We No Speak Americano)
- 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)
- Varrick Frost
- Wolfgang Lohr (known mostly for his collabs)
- OR3O's concept album Clover: Love, Hope, Faith & Luck
Tropes associated with the genre:
- Anachronism Stew: Flapper girls, speakeasies, and robots often share face time in the imagery associated with electro swing, as the above image shows.
- Colbert Bump: There's an uptick in interest in the genre among the Steven Universe fandom after an amazing Villain Song in the 2019 movie.
- Diesel Punk: By remixing vintage jazz, swing, and big band music with EDM, house, and hip-hop, electro swing achieves this effect.
- Memetic Mutation: Parov Stelar's "Catgroove" has been remixed with numerous videos and .gifs, most frequently set to My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.
- This would not be the last time Ponies would meet this genre, either. Caravan Palace would get the 'PMV' treatment, too.
- Fake Type's "Nightmare Parade" also spawned an animated dance craze. The band even released their own animated video featuring Ms. Iwasake and Baron Ham as Funny Animals doing said dance.
