Let me start this off by saying I am a massive fan of electro swing. In relation to all the other electronically-influenced genres it is still fairly underrepresented, which is in no way a bad thing. Without too many producers overcrowding the space, it’s not difficult to spot a real gem when it surfaces on the web, and that is exactly what we have here. There are so many interesting things going on in this track, but it’s only after you hear the original that you can really appreciate the pure creative genius of this remix. Klischée, an electro-swing duo from Switzerland, completely transform the high-energy punk elements of BONAPARTE‘s single, infusing it with classical jazz elements and groovy electronic beats that transports this festival rager back in time to what I can only imagine to be a 1920′s smokey dancehall setting.
The masterful blending of the old and the new is something truly special and is definitely one of the major appeals of the genre. So swap that glowstick for a brass cane, that outrageous fluffy head ornament for a fedora, and that embarrassing fluro getup for something that oozes style, and keep it classy, ninjas.
