    "Yes, this really is a new genre and an exciting one at last...;." Time Out

    "The sound of 2011"Mixmag

    Freshly Squeezed is the leading label in an electro swing revolution. Following the phenomenal success of our 'White Mink: Black Cotton' compilation series, the continued rise of our artists 'The Correspondents', a string of festival bookings and "White Mink curates...;" events, national press features and much more, we are delighted to release Swing Republic's seminal debut on CD for the first time.

    Swing Republic began life as a side-project for a platinum-selling Danish producer (who co-wrote Germany's biggest selling album of 2010). He began remixing the swing music that he loved with modern beats and licensed several tracks to various compilations, most notably 'On The Downbeat', (which was, incidentally, the first tune he wrote in this style). This brilliant album includes a previously unreleased track, Drum Boogie, and packaged in a tactile, reverse card 'tour poster blank' style sleeve.

    Swing Republic deliver an infectious 21st century dance-floor take on a cracking selection of vintage swing classics. Not in a jive-bunny way, but with a taste and respect that refreshes the originals rather than overwhelms them. Not only does the album as a whole steer clear of some of the emerging cliche's of the new genre by avoiding a default swing-house style, but it also eschews the more obvious choices of source material instead branching into fresh areas of 40s R&B, Jive and even Blues to stunning effect. This album has some truly amazing gems on it (Peas & Rice, Cryin' At Daybreak stand out).
