More electro swing! Am I going to make a big deal about it every time I do an electro swing post? Yes, yes I am. I really want this genre to get more popular because I think it has some serious potential and more popularity means a wider range of producer styles. Though I think that a lot of the songs sound similar, the genre is still fairly young, there’s a few that really shine through and I want more! Sound Nomaden comes out of Germany and from what I’ve seen, they’ve got a pretty good electro swing scene out there and he’s put out some great jams while being rated 2012’s “Best electro swing DJ live act.”
The Trumpet is Sound Nomaden’s most popular song and was a big hit on the Electro Swing Revolution compilation cd. It features a funky bass line and a swanky trumpet over the track. Though sometimes I get a little sick of the trumpet over every track, this one does it right. I Dance Charleston is a chiller track and you can’t help but feel happy when you listen to it. You Gotta Hurry is an original track with a really nice piano riff to it. I wonder how much Sound Nomaden samples in his songs and how much is his original work. If he did the trumpet and piano in all these songs that would be amazing. I probably should figure that out… I love the old school vocals in the remix of Honolulu Baby. It sounds like he got them right off a vinyl record. Changing it up from all the trumpet features, Akkordeon Hipsters features an accordion more heavily and it works great!
