Serious big up to Future Swing Stories for mixing/passing us this amazing ghetto swing mix! Most definitely one of the best electronic swing mixes I’ve heard – probably due to the perfect balance of dirt, hip hop beats, bass, swing and ghettoness. Show em some love by tuning in below and downloading it from their FB page! Here’s a lil’ description text:
The first half of the 20th century saw periods of prohibition of the bottle in several countries around the world. Prohibition became increasingly unpopular during the Great depression, with Bootleggers, Rum runners and organised crime syndicates cashing in on this, the streets were a muck but the speakeasy’s flourished making way for an extraordinary time for music, a time of elegance, grandeur and down right naughtiness.
This mix attempts to translate the period of prohibition in the United States, from inception to ratification and the dry bits in between. (Future Swing Stories SC, 2011)
