Electro Swing meets classic, or Frédéric Chopin has arrived in the Roaring 2020’s with modern club beats. The real piano is played by DanyloM, based in Kiev in Ukraine and sounds absolutely vintage. He is a young and talented ragtime pianist and runs a well-known TikTok channel with his piano sessions. Wolfgang Lohr discovered these authentic skills and brought them together on a wild journey through the genres with his well-known style and sound!
The ballad comes from sketches that Chopin made in 1831 during his eight-month stay in Vienna. It was completed in 1835 after he moved to Paris, where he dedicated it to Baron Nathaniel von Stockhausen, the Hanoverian ambassador to France. #BalladeNo1 #ItMustSchwing 🔥 🎹 🎷 🎵 🎺

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, “FDF” is a beloved collection of carefully curated tracks with a weekly audience of +30K followers!
