“I’ve Got to Be a Rug Cutter”… Just as Duke Ellington’s version of this tune made you want to jitterbug, this remix will have you tapping your feet all night long. Wolfgang Lohr and The Hebbe Sisters have rediscovered a true vintage treasure and flipped it into an early summer banger full of bass, groove, surprises and tempo changes.
Keeping the essential elements untouched, the Berlin-based producer has infused the original big band sound with a generous helping of house, neo swing, future bass, halftime drum & bass and dubstep styles to create a future swing track that completely stands on its own.
On top of that, Wolfgang is joined by the sensational Swedish vocal trio “The Hebbe Sisters” and their skilled jazz musicians who harmonise the unforgettable melody and turn “Rug Cutter” into an exciting electro swing bop that you don’t want to miss. Prepare to find yourself dancing! #FutureSwing #RugCutter #HalftimeSwing

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
