Electro-Swing is a fusion of electronic dance music and 1920s to 1940s Jazz and Big Band styles with genres such as House & Electro music, made popular by artists such as Parov Stelar
The Mix also includes some tracks from the new ‘Balkan’ style house music that uses samples from old Russian / Balkan records. Then at the end of the mix it goes off on a tangent to the 1960s :oD
Recorded Live on two Pioneer CDJs, at my DJ residency for Distil, Lebua, an exclusive 5 Star hotel lounge bar in Bangkok Thailand. The hotel was recently used in a shoot for ‘The Hangover Part 2′ Movie.

One of four day time DJ selections from James Bubblefunk for Mini United 2009. Samples from the original 1969 film The Italian Job over nu-skool funk beats with the odd rock-a-billy track thrown in for good measure.

One Dub: While some of tracks are deep & a bit dark, I’ve also tried to raise the vibration with a few favorites. Some new stuff and some of my old rare vinyl tracks in a dub stylee.
While I don’t particularly condone the recent violent and vandalistic chav-fest (London, UK, August 2011), I think something needs to be said regarding the current state of the UK establishment. The lack of Police & Fire response to the initial situations was shocking. Maybe this was deliberate so people start ‘crying out’ for even tougher laws, more police and even more government authority, so when the sheet really does hit the fan and the economy collapses further, then we’re really shafted. People need to realize what’s going on, yet not get caught up in the ‘fear’ of it all, which is exactly what they want.
Tracks I love, but didn’t go in the mix: Ghost Town – The Specials. Police And Thieves – Junior Murvin. Guns Of Brixton – The Clash.

The Conspiracy | Funk Indie Comedy Mash-Up Live DJ Mix
Woah! This was a tough one! I recorded this a while back, maybe about 2001, but dug it out as I remember many people commenting on it at the time… It was tough as I had to track down all the tracks again as I lost the track listing! But got there in the end, there are still a few on there that are not 100% accurate though so bare with me…
Samples come from Bill Hicks and George Calin for the comedy sketches and George Bush I sampled from many different sources… can’t really go wrong for comedy value with that idiot! :oD
