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.

Notable artists:

  • Eleven Acorn Lane
  • Caravan Palace
  • C2C (mixed with Trip Hop and Alternative Hip Hop)
  • Caro Emerald
  • The Correspondents
  • Electric Swing Circus
  • FAKE TYPE.
  • Goldfish
  • 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
  • Klischée
  • Wolfgang Lohr (known mostly for his collabs)
  • OR3O's concept album Clover: Love, Hope, Faith & Luck
