Electro swing:
Electro swing is a musical genre fusing swing styles with contemporary production techniques including house, hip hop, EDM and more. Contemporary artists of the genre incorporate loops, samples, melodies and styles from the swing, jazz and big band era such as the works of Django Reinhardt, Cab Calloway and Benny Goodman to create new, sometimes more club friendly or more accessible sounds. Leading artists who have released complete "Electro Swing" artist albums include Goldfish, Parov Stelar, Caravan Palace, Swingrowers, The Electric Swing Circus, G-Swing, and Waldeck.
The genre is also connected with a revival of interest in swing dances like the Lindy hop, the popularity of Neo-Burlesque and the resurgence in an appreciation of vintage fashion and culture in mainstream society, championed by numerous style icons Dita Von Teese or television shows like Boardwalk Empire or films of the period like The Great Gatsby or The Artist.

Most early Electro swing tunes were one-offs and would not at the time have been described as such. Lucas With The Lid Off by Lucas Secon is an early example which had some chart success. Various others like Doop (1995), Jimmy Luxury (who coined the term 'Swing hop') with "Hi-Ball Swing" (1999), Jurassic 5's "Swing Set" (2000), Gry and F.M. Einheit's "Princess Crocodile" (2000), The Real Tuesday Weld's "Bathtime in Clerkenwell" (2003) and Mr. Scruff's "Get A Move On" (1999) all built variously on this sound adding new elements. Many 'Lounge' and 'Nu-Jazz' tracks also borrowed Swing music elements, perhaps most notably from the artist St. Germain. In 2005 Parov Stelar, who had been experimenting with a 'Nu-Jazz' type sound released the first of a series of Electro Swing records on his own label Etage Noir label. This was developed and built on by artists like G-Swing, Waldeck and Caravan Palace.
Gradually a new genre began to form from the disparate pieces. A tipping point was reached as other artists, some new and some who were already involved with other styles like downtempo, lounge or house began to pick up on the sound and style. In 2009 the first compilation albums of the music began to appear 'defining' the genre. Most notably "Electro Swing" from Wagram in France and "White Mink: Black Cotton (Electro Swing versus Speakeasy Jazz)" from Freshly Squeezed Music in England which was described by the dance music magazine Mixmag as "Electro Swing's first landmark moment".

Electro Swing:
Electro Swing entstand um die Jahrtausendwende und bezeichnet die Kombination moderner, elektronischer Tanzmusik und Swing, einer Stilrichtung des Jazz aus den 1920er und 1930er Jahren.
Parov Stelar und Caravan Palace sind bedeutende Vertreter dieses Genres. Weitere wichtige Bands sind The London Swing Remix Orchestra, das französische KKC, die Berliner Dirty Honkers und das Electronic Swing Orchestra. Weiterhin zu erwähnen sind Gramophonedzie, Phos Toni, Shemian, Waldeck und auch Caro Emerald. Spätestens seitdem das australische Duo Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP mit ihrem Hit We No Speak Americano überall in den Radiosendern Europas gespielt wurde, setzte sich der Electroswing durch. Das französische Label Wagram veröffentlichte 2010 unter dem Namen Electro-Swing Fever vier Kompilationen mit seinerzeit aktuellen Einspielungen und Remixes.

Im Electroswing werden meist Gesang, Instrumentalisierung, typische Rhythmik und Melodien aus dem Swing mit elektronischen Klängen und Beats untermalt und Phrasen wiederholt. Die Tanzbarkeit des Swing wird durch die elektronische Basslinie noch verstärkt. Bei einigen Künstlern finden sich auch Einflüsse aus Klezmer, Gypsy-Jazz und Weltmusik. Teilweise reicht die Musik, an der sich orientiert wird, bis in die 1950er Jahre. Daher wird neben Charleston und Swing auch Boogaloo, Rock'n'Roll oder Cumbia verarbeitet. International werden wenigstens in 13 Ländern Partys veranstaltet, auf denen zum Electroswing getanzt wird. Zu einer Veranstaltung am 1. Mai 2012 auf dem Flughafen Berlin-Tempelhof kamen mehr als 10.000 Menschen.
Electroswing reiht sich ein in eine Vielzahl von Stilrichtungen, die Jazz mit anderen Stilen vereinen (z. B. der Nu-Jazz).
