Here comes the Electro Swing mix of the classic “It Don’t Mean A Thing”, originally composed by Duke Ellington in 1931.
The Roaring Twenties are back and producer Wolfgang Lohr from Berlin has teamed up with the Swedish vocal trio The Hebbe Sisters. Their clear voices and skills are amazing and round off the retro feeling with a gentle touch of Jazz.
Wolfgang Lohr gave this production his spin of House and other club music vibes, with a rolling bassline and various grooves in a modern arrangement. It’s kind of Neo Swing mixed with Garage and typical House drums, swing shuffles and all those big band sounds and banging horns on top! #IDMAT

Joy, charisma & musicality – three words that characterize these singing, swinging, showing and dancing sisters. With contagious energy and verve they perform music in their own innovative arrangements. Once The Hebbe Sisters enter the stage they will move and inspire their audience.
The three Hebbe sisters Emelie, Josefine and Maria tour regularly, both in Sweden and abroad, and have performed on stage together since early childhood. During the past years they have performed on Sweden’s biggest TV-shows, which gained them high popularity. Their individual voices chime in perfect unison since they are siblings.
The Hebbe Sisters recently released their third album and biggest venture so far, Jazz It up and Move, in collaboration with members of Sweden’s current jazz elite. ” You girls sing clear like white, crystal snow. You are real artists.” / Nate Watts, Stevie Wonders Musical Director
This Bad Segebergian-by-birth and Berliner-by-choice has been a mainstay of the electronic music scene since 2011. Among his 100+ tracks are remixes for artists (Felix Jaehn, Parov Stelar, Alle Farben, Lexer and Tinush) and a wicked spread of self-productions in the Electro Swing, House, Tech House, and Deep House genres.
As Lohr explains it, “the motto, ‘now more than ever,’ says it all. Electro Swing is what I’m all about right now, and this is the moment that everything is happening in that space. But it could be that the scene fades. Who knows. So it’s just as much as I can do all the time, release after release, project after project.” This dogged delivery has made Wolfgang one of the most sought-after Electro Swing artists worldwide.
Beyond his work as Wolfgang Lohr, he can be heard under various other guises, forming core constituencies of the House duo “DINKS” and the Tech House outfit, “Dorade”. He is otherwise active as a producer of music media and is one of the heads behind the “Electro Swing Thing”.
Prior to his emergence as a producer, he served as trumpeter, singer, and songwriter for the ska band “DaSKArtell” for over 15 years, as well as concertizing and performing in-studio for a variety of other bands. His music blog and House label, “FDF” is a beloved collection of carefully curated tracks with a weekly audience of +35K followers!
