Welcome to the first Flashback Friday officially under Electronic Current! Today will be a serious flashback with at groovin’ electro-swing playlist, gramophones and all! While most of these tracks are two to three years old, they have created a seamless and epic fusion of the old with the new, and for a while Electro-swing was the hot thing! Typically Youtube videos aren’t the best way to share music with our readers however, with electro-swing it’s an absolute must!
So kick back with an old fashioned, jam out to some Gramophonzied and Caravan Palace, and be on your way to that little speakeasy tonight!
Loesje- Tony Junior & Nicolas Nox
This Dutch collaboration between Tony Junior (Spinnin’ Records) and Nicolas Nox is a peppy, humorous, and incredibly fun track to bust out the Charleston, windmill arms, and pelvic thrusts to at the club. Transitioning between the swing verses and electro chorus, and incorporating the traditional drums and horns, Loesje gives you that perfect mix.
Nah Neh Nah- Rico Bernasconi vs Vaya Con Dios
A vastly popular track at it’s prime, the seductive vocals add a sassy nuance to a very light, bouncy, and fun track. Very European in style, you’ll be singing “Neh Nah Nah Nah” along with the hook.

Why Don’t You- Gramophonedzie
First off, when watching this video, I just about die watching the nerdy boy’s dance moves. That aside, talk about a creative music video concept to accompany the traditional 40s sound modernized with a house beat.
Bambous- Caravan Palace
Last but not least is Bambous by Parisian group Caravan Palace. With tap dancing feet that kick off a house beat, gritty vocals, and blazing horns, another great and fun electro swing track you can your special shoes on and dance the night away.
Happy Friday! #TGIF
