As the name implies, Electro-Swing fuses the Diesel Era swing music style, which has a strong brass and woodwind instruments played with a medium to fast tempos and a "lilting" swing time rhythm with modern forms of electronica dance music.
An example of an excellent collection of Electro-Swing are the CD’s "White Mink: Black Cotton 'Electro Swing versus Speakeasy Jazz'" Vol. 1 (2009) and Vol. 2 (2010), which were released by Freshly Squeezed Music, which is one of the leading Electro-Swing production company's.
Several Electro-Swing bands have gained recognition. One popular band is Tape Five, which is German though their members are from around the world. They have a new CD scheduled for release September 21, 2012 titled, “Swing Patrol.”
Another is Caravan Palace from Paris, France. Their most recent CD was “Panic,” which was released March 12, 2012.
