Betty Booom grabs “Billie Jean”, the 80’s classic by Michael Jackson, who made the “Moonwalk” famous with this hit, and puts it in a groovy Electro Swing version with bigband, jazz and vintage feeling. All combined with modern club beats for the Roaring 2020’s.
The lead voice of the singer and actor Slim Khezri from the United States gives the track real Jacko vibes and The Hebbe Sisters from Sweden give this authentic Neo Swing cover version the right finishing touches and toplines. This masterpiece gets a new touch and spin through the three sisters and their authentic 3-part harmony vocal skills. Billie Jean goes swing and hopefully soon directly forward to the dancefloors of the new 20’s all over the world and until the moon! #BillieJean

Betty Booom comes from Cape Town in South Africa and loves electronic but also handmade music. She started playing in bars and clubs 10 years ago and has played at several festivals in her country. As a DJ, she has a penchant for combining techno and house with old music elements and integrating them into her sets.
In her childhood she had piano lessons for years and her whole family consists of musicians who play all instruments. Her father’s passion for collecting vinyl and the genres of jazz, swing, soul and disco shaped her taste in music. the last years she has been able to improve her skills as a producer so that she now publishes her own music. It’s an interesting mix of styles, something completely new, you could possibly describe it with techno swing.
As a DJ, she has a penchant for combining Techno and House with vintage music elements and integrating them into her sets. In her new track “Balkan Bang” she made it with Klezmer brass sections, a touch of Electro Swing, Gypsy and a very deep bass line in combination with an absolutely club beat in pure Balkan beat style. And it always keeps boooming and boooming again!
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
