Unlike the usual DJ-based sets, these cats are doing it in the moment, with real instruments and the improvisational chops of live players. And the synthetic sounds brought in by their producer/DJ are pushing these old standards to a new and exciting place. This fusion of the best of traditional swing and modern EDM is sure to keep your fingers poppin’ and your feet high steppin’!
