Rossini’s famous „Barber“ – but make it Swing!
Once upon a time an outstanding Ukrainian Jazz pianist and a multifaceted South African Electro Swing producer stumbled across one of music history’s greatest masterpieces of comedy: Rossini’s Barber.
Naturally, they put their heads together and joined forces to catapult it into our today’s musical landscape and create a track that goes straight to our legs.
DanyloM’s swinging Ragtime piano combined with Betty Booom’s incomparable club sound make for a worthy homage to the original piece while allowing party animals of our time to get down to it.
You better get ready! 🔥 🎹 🎷 🎵 🎺

Betty Booom is a Cape Town based DJ and producer whose heart beats equally for electronic and handmade music.
At only 27, she can already look back at ten years in the music business and has played at various clubs and festivals all over her home country. She has made a name for herself by fusing techno and house with catchy vintage-music elements: A combination that has developed into her very own, distinct sound.
Growing up in a family of musicians, she started playing the piano and got inspired by her father’s passion for collecting Jazz, Swing, Soul, and, Disco records. All of which have shaped her taste in music and have sparked her interest in music production.
Today, she releases original tracks in a style that can hardly be boxed in, but she tends to describe as “Techno with that Swing”.
No matter what soundscape she explores, her music keeps booming and boooming!
