Electro Swing Club returns to London for a Vintage themed speakeasy collab night with Swing & Bass at The Hootananny. Prepare yourself to be submersed in a world of 1930’s style Electro Swingin’ madness & debauchery. Expect to hear the sounds of Electro Swing to Drum’n’Bass, Hip-Hop, Garage, House, Glitch and more, all with a Swingin’ twist.
ProleteR is a French Hip-Hop beatmaker, best known for combining Boom Bap style drums with Vintage Jazz & Swing samples. His tracks have amassed millions of listens across numerous platforms, and he’s established himself internationally as a world class producer. It was only fitting that we brought someone of his calibre to Hootananny for this monumental Electro Swing Club x Swing & Bass night.
The Captain Flatcap Band:
Captain Flatcap and his band of merry men play a combination Swing and Folk music, using a variety of instruments such as flute, trumpet, guitar, mandolin, keyboard, percussion and of course a big ol’ dollop of squelch and bass fuelled filth! These guys have smashed the UK festival circuit and are at the forefront of bringing vintage music to the 21st Century with their own unique twist.
Fizzy Gillespie Brass Battle:
Fizzy Gillespie partners up with The Heavy Beat Brass Band to bring you the sounds of Drum’n’Bass & Jungle mashed up with Swing, Jazz, Soul & more, all with a full live brass section.
Event Horizon Quartet:
A Free-Jazz quartet from Birmingham comprised of 4 musicians who have collectively played at countless music festivals across the UK, expect classy traditional style sounds to ease you into the night.
'An Event Horizon is a boundary in spacetime beyond which events cannot affect an outside observer. It’s defined as 'the point of no return’, the point at which the gravitational pull becomes so great as to make escape impossible.’
Expect nothing less than the finest in vintage style riddims from this funky fresh beat swinging selekta.
