The third album “Let’s misbehave” follows the vibe from the first album, with old samples combined with electronic elements.
Swing Republic combines the spirituality and emotional expressions from the past with the electronic technology of the future. Open-mindedness of the hippie culture and hypnotic rhythms of industry. A globalized and worldly mindset. “Emotional Technology” is one of the leading principles in the approach to the musical landscapes and cities of Swing Republic.
In the city Techville the machines live with beautiful manipulation and physical rhythm. In Emotia the sound and shades from the past live in the shape of legendary jazz artists, old movies and with complexity in emotional communication. Ethnico City is home of percussion and many other instruments. They live in beautiful disharmony and mutual inspiration. Giant parties where inhabitants from the cities get together and mix with each other in a relaxed – yet intense atmosphere. A collector of new styles and fusions; like a gardener in a fascinating oasis of music and visuals.
