Speakeasy Electo Swing Seattle Launch
The SPEAKEASY Electro Swing is the one and only Seattle dance party where vintage swing meets modern beats.
Welcome to the retro-future. As our economy revisits the depression era, it is time for our culture to revel in the glory of those days. It is time to get snazzed up, and get down to the sounds of Electro Swing that have been taking over the UK and the rest of Europe in the last few years. We are bringing you the first monthly event to focus on these sounds of now on this continent where the music began. As we scour the crates of dusty old record stores and remake these songs into club tunes of today, updating the swing sounds with electro, hip hop, house, bass, and dub. The sounds have been spreading through the Electro Swing compilations on Wagram music out of France, and the White Mink/Black Cotton albums from the UK in the past few years. With electro swing coming to every major festival in the EU this summer, we know it will only take a moment for folks on this side of the sea to find out why we are all working up a sweat about the sound.
With packed monthlies set up by our friends in London, Berlin, Torino, Paris, Antwerp and beyond, we will be bringing you both the sounds of tradition, and the sound of the future.
