Now for round 2 in our compilation series for the Speakeasy Electro Swing crew. This one is once again compiled by DJ Eliazar taking tunes from around the globe, and passing them along to you. We started this compilation series to spread more knowledge about the sounds and producers that we love. Many of these tracks have been found through searching through Soundcloud & Bandcamp to discover new artists. Also the Scour has been helpful in introducing us to some of these artists, as he is always finding amazing new groovers for the dancefloor.
As we constanly evolve and discover new things in life, Volume 2 is on the Electro Vintage theme, which includes Electro Blues, Gospel, and Soul to add to our love of Electro Swing. Many artists are criss-crossing genre lines all the time, and as most of us are in love with all forms of old music, why not rework all the styles into a melange of fun. After attending Jazzfest and Bluesfest in Chicago throughout my youth, there has always been a love for these styles of music in my veins.
We have called up some of the crew from the last compilation, and also invited many new faces whose tunes have been pumping out of speakers as I have been touring around a fair bit spreading the word of Electro Swing across North America and beyond. We hope you support them and buy their music, as all of us are doing this for the love of music, and usually are always broke because of it. Heck, I even have to pay 2 cents per DL of the album, but it is worth it to spread the toons, and hopefully you can help us out by supporting us by attending our shows, buying other music and merch, or donating to the cause.
