“We love reinvention, using elements that already exist like vintage music, performance styles and costume so we are able to please or uncover a love of swing with both vintage fans and modern kids. We’ve always been huge fans of London and it’s cutting edge club culture so to be accepted and given such support from so many people has just amazed us. We work with electro swing clubs, vintage themed burlesque clubs, the best of your festivals and it’s thanks to all our UK fans and collaborators for making our journey so exciting so far.” Bart
We are pleased to announce that our friends Bart & Baker have included our collaboration with them on their debut album ‘Introducing Bart & Baker.’ The track ‘Bee Zoo’ is a little moment of kitsch that we hope fits in perfectly with their signature electro swing tunes.
If you’re in London and fancy checking out the cut of their jib, you can see them at The Electro Swing Club at Book Club on Sat 20th April. With lots of other DJ talent and some live performances, this is an internationally famous club night with a unique fusion of Paris/London Swing.
Those closer to Paris will find that Bart&Baker have their own monthly residency at the world-famed Parisian club La Machine du MOULIN ROUGE. See more about the vintage loving duo on their website.

We have something a little different to share with you today – a remix competition in conjunction with French music site Electrocorp.
It’s for our new collaboration with Parisian dandies Bart&Baker, who have focussed their electro-swing DJ/production skills on a cute track we wrote especially for them.
It’s called ‘Bee Zoo,’ it’s kitch as hell, and we can’t wait to hear what clever twists can be found by other producers…
Full details of how to enter can be read here.
Closing on August 15th, the jury (Electrocorp, Bart&Baker and ourselves) will select the best remixes to post online through Electrocorp’s SoundCloud until early September. The three most played, favorited and commented (as a combination of the three) will be include in the EP release and awarded with 150 euros for their work.
