Swing Hop is a crossover genre of classic Swing, Jazz, Funk and Hip Hop. The tempo varies from 75-115BPM and has a drum groove that is familiar from Hip Hop. Sometimes Rap vocals are used in the productions, or even vocals with verses and chorus top lines. Many tracks are also instrumental, with vintage samples from themes and melodies of the 20’s-50’s Swing classics.
Well-known artists who coined this Electro Swing sub genre include ProleteR, Smokey Joe & The Kid, Gramatik, Jurassic 5, Dutty Moonshine and Minimatic. But there are also a lot of other Swing Hop tracks, by artists from other genres, who occasionally took a trip into this kind of music style. It’s an unlisted genre, without a real home and therefore there are still no real rules and restrictions for it. Swing has always stood for freedom, openness and further development in music! #ItMustSchwing
