By LadyDot – November 2022
I have always associated October with cold, rain and gloomy greyness. This year it has been completely different – October in Poland has been really sunny and warm, and this has given me a lot more motivation to do things. The music, of course, has also had a big influence, and there is never a shortage of it in my life.
I must admit that after the first article of my new series, Electro Swing News (you can read it HERE), I couldn’t wait to write you another text full of music news, social media overviews and gossip circulating somewhere in the Electro Swing community. Without further ado, I’m taking you on a short trip back in time – but this time we’re not going to the very distant past, because I’ve prepared a short summary of October 2022 especially for you.
I heard somewhere that one of the Electro Swing songs will be used… in a new TV series. So far I don’t know anything more, but as soon as I find out, I’ll be sure to let you know!
As you know, this has happened before – in August 2021 we could hear “Make Swing Great Again” in the second season of the Netflix-produced series Valeria. Wolfgang Lohr, Deladap and Melinda Stoika certainly had a huge reason to be proud then.
I wonder who will be so lucky to have their song heard in the series this time? And I wonder if this gossip will turn out to be true… :)
I have to admit that there were some really cool tracks released in October. Interestingly, not all of them were typically Halloween-themed. I like theme songs, but sometimes it’s also nice to listen to something not directly related to Halloween.
Okay, here we go! Do you remember my rating scale? One heart – I like it. Two hearts: I like it a lot. Three hearts: the song is brilliant!

The highest score and the title of my favourite Electro Swing track in October is claimed by as many as two songs: “Night Times” by LVDS and “Watch Your Tongue” by the duo PiSk and Little Violet!
Since we’ve already talked about the new Electro Swing songs coming out in October, we can’t forget about the albums either. In a previous article in the Electro Swing News series, I mentioned to you that I’m looking forward to Boogie Belgique’s album – ‘Machine’ (release on the 14th of October) and ProleteR’s ‘Fairuz’ (release on the 20th of October). “Machine” is a beautiful, nostalgic tale that fits wonderfully as a relaxing tune for chilly autumn evenings. And ‘Fairuz’… Well, I love that swing hop, unmistakable Proleter sound, and I’ve listened to his new album about 5 times already. So, I’m thinking, maybe it’s a good time to think about reviewing this album? :)
But! I also found info that The Rin Tins have released a new album – ‘Without Further Ado’ (out on the 28th of October). So if you’re a fan of classic swing, vintage vocals and the sound of saxophone and brass instruments (oh, and of course that captivating guitar and melodic piano!), then you’ll definitely enjoy the tracks from this album.
Well, I have to confess to you that I listened to a lot of French touch and funk in October. However, there is always enough room in my heart for any genre of music – including Electro Swing, of course!
And finally, instead of a news, a quick appeal to Electro Swing artists! Don’t hesitate to write to me about your new track. Firstly, it makes me very happy because I feel you appreciate my work.
And secondly, it’s a huge help in planning new reviews and news. And by the way, thank you to all those with whom I stay in constant contact. It’s great to be part of this big Electro Swing family. :)
