Electro Blues

A 24 track big beat album (1h 26m 3s) — released February 25th 2013 on Freshly Squeezed

Electro-Blues is a double digipack CD and download album
featuring one side of vintage and another of vintage-influenced
sounds. Forget the stale world of the blues historian and purist. This is
all about taking a fresh look at what constitutes the blues in both
sound and attitude. We aim to side-step the clich├ęs and re-examine a
genre.

Side one features an introductory over-view of some amazing
contemporary artists, producers and performers. They are linked by
their explorations remixing and re-modeling this incredible, earthy and
enduring musical form. Side two re-contextualises blues, not as a
melancholy lament but as a form of gritty Saturday night Jukebox
entertainment. From jump blues dance music to innuendo-laden
romps. This is music that is vibrant and full of life.

Freshly Squeezed is the worlds leading electro swing label.
Having pioneered a rediscovery of vintage swing (from co-founding a
global chain of electro swing clubs to promoting the biggest bands in
this genre to our phenomenally successful, silver-disc'd White Mink
series), we are now turning our attentions to the Blues.

As well as the double CD album Vol 1 (we are already working on a
deeper, darker follow up) - we are running monthly club nights in
Brighton and London and curating festival stages at Bestival,
Glastonbury, Womad, Meadowlands and many more. Expect big
things.
