Parov Stelar has been making music for a long time now, and it's a shame that I'm only now discovering his genius. Swanky and upbeat, he takes sophistication of swing and weaves it together with dance beats. The big band horns and war-era vocals are reminiscent of a time when classiness and partying were fused together with liquor for a grand ol' time. This is his most recent track, Jimmy's Gang, off the album Princess. Electro swing has been utilized by artists like Gramatik and Pretty Lights, but never to such an extent as this.
This song, Chaimbermaid Swing, was used in the most recent Bacardi commercial, and is what sparked my interest in Stelar. Hopefully there is much more to come from this genre.
Catgroove seems to be the fan favorite.
