Compact Disc (CD)
WHITE MINK: BLACK COTTON "Electro Swing versus Speakeasy Jazz" is a first! A double CD that brings together re-mastered and rediscovered gems from rare and original 78's with the best contemporary music influenced by 30's jazz age sounds.
This is the very first compilation to bring these together and the UK's first ever Electro Swing CD.
Compiled by Nick Hollywood of Freshly Squeezed, Club Montepulciano and Lost Vagueness fame (who pioneered the lounge scene) and DJ's El Nino and Lady Kamikazi of London's (award-winning) Black Cotton and Lady Luck clubs - the CD is put together by some of the true originators among DJs of the UK's burgeoning vintage club scene.
Capturing a new zeitgeist, CD1 WHITE MINK brings together the best of today's artists like France's platinum-selling Caravan Palace (who will tour the UK in 2010), the nu-jazz star Parov Stelar, the UK's Jesse Rose and Austria's Waldeck with influential but hard-to-find early classics of the genre like "Princess Crocodile" by F.M. Einheit and Gry.
CD2 BLACK COTTON is the fruit of many years crate-digging for rare 78's that have then been tried and tested on the Club's dance floor. Fresh originals by the likes of Django Reinhardt, Woody Herman and Benny Goodman combine with early vocal performances from undisputed legends like Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald. BUT BE AWARE - this is not the lame flavour-less Top Hat, White-Tie & Tails compilation you may have heard before: this is pure, hot, vintage club music that will blow you away. It crashes out of one great depression into the next more relevant & exciting than at any time since it's heyday!
