‘Blue Cover’ Series 2.1 marks the return of the popular Blue Cover Series as it began in 2012. The original Blue Cover Series ended after 5 years and 12 EP’s with a comprehensive collection and there was no intention of continuing it, but a few recent Freshly Squeezed releases proved to be worth reviving the concept.
The intention of the Blue Cover Series is mainly to showcase new signings and one-off singles by emerging and developing artists. Atom Smith, formerly of the Californian duo The Gentleman Callers of L.A., contributed two songs from his four-track Swing-Hop EP Flashin’ Like Gatsby, while the ever-enigmatic masked DJ The Swing Bot added his surprisingly dark and heavy Swing-House song Coquette. Pisk, better known as the mastermind producer behind the Italian Electro-Swing band Swingrowers, returns after 2017’s single Minnie the Moocher with his new track It Ain’t Right, influenced equal parts by Dancehall Swing and Latin Dance rhythms. JAWN is another returning artist, who waltzed into 2018 with a defiantly tempo-shifting seductive track Obsession (By My Side), featuring Alanna Lyes from label colleagues Grinny Grandad.
‘Blue Cover’ Series 2.1 is part of the revived Blue Cover Series, with future releases planned from the likes of, K.D.S., CHARLIE BEALE, FAB SAMPERI and others so keep your eyes peeled!
