SCOUR RECORDS: Scoured Swing Vol. 1 (2016)

Scoured Swing Vol 1Having had a successful last few years tackling all manner of party breaks, Scour Records now turn their attentions exclusively to bear on the swing side of things with the advent of a new series – Scoured Swing Vol. 1. Enter a feral gang of breakbeat jitterbuggers consisting of both usual suspects and some new names armed with breaks, wobble, and saxophone cases bursting at the seams with ancient samples. The Fritz gets into a swing state with the laid back About Me, Funkanizer takes a swing at skankin – er – swing with Gimme Dat Swing, Father Funk sires the pumping glitch of Swingers, Extra Medium swings by with Size Up, Hong Kong Ping Pong team up with Skeewiff for some sweet swing honey, Just Peach are in full swing with Jimmy’s Swing while it’s a case of swings in the swing age and roundabouts in the glitch age for Tuxedo Junction. More swing than Tarzan in a rope factory then. Arguably classiest of the bunch though is Daytoner‘s effort – the whole grain tasty goodness of the Beiderbecke-powered, Betabix.
