Electro Swing News 16

By LadyDot – January 2024

We’re starting another year full of a whole lot of great music, new releases, new reviews and artist interviews and… a real Electro Swing revolution! I don’t know if you know, but at the end of the year I started working with Electro Swing Thing as A&R & Content Manager. Apart from the fact that this is undoubtedly the fulfilment of my fondest dreams, it additionally enables me to be even closer to your favourite artists. I present to you an abbreviated format of Electro Swing News, i.e. an Electro Swing summary of December and news from January. It will be shorter, but I promise it will be no less interesting!

Electro Swing Single Releases – December 2023

My dear readers, I have decided not to rate any more new singles. Everyone’s tastes are completely different, and I wouldn’t want to suggest to you which song is the best. I simply leave you with a list of new releases, and you listen to them, dance to them and add them to your playlists! 😊

Electro Swing Album Release – December 2023

On 22nd December 2023, the re-release of LMZG‘s album “WE ARE ANACHRONIC” was released. LMZG are always surprising us with new songs, so it couldn’t be any different in this case. On the reissue of this album you will find as many as five totally new songs: “PANIC ROOM”, “REBOOT”, “ORAGE”, “SATELLITE” and “CICATRICES”. Which of these is the best? I’m not able to choose because they are all great, heavily electronic and danceable! You can order this excellent album here, which I wholeheartedly encourage you to do: https://www.lmzg.fr/affiches. I already have my own CD, how about you? 😊

Bio – LadyDot

Anna (LadyDot) was born in ’94, but always felt she came from the Golden Twenties. “Polka” in Polish means “girl from Poland”, so she’s “Polka in polka dots”. She loves vintage style and spontaneous travels around Europe. But her greatest love (apart from her husband) is of course music, especially Electro Swing, Funk, Swing Hop and French Electronic Music.

Anna works at a Polish music label, where she coordinates the physical production of CDs and vinyl records. Music is therefore not only her passion, but also her job!
