Swing & Bass: Album Launch Party

By on January 21, 2019

For most of 2018, we have been working on compiling a very special Swing & Bass compilation album with brand new unreleased music featuring different producers from across the world.

We are very happy to announce this alongside a late night launch party running though to 6AM with a bunch of our favourite festival heroes who are appearing on the album. The night is also in aid of Mind, a charity which provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem.

Come and join us for a night of Swing, Funk, Soul & Bass, and hear the music from album before anyone else. Step inside and see where bowler hats meet bass and lindy hop meets booty pop!

Swing & Bass: Album Launch Party will be held at Bar 512 Saturday 26th January 2019.


Extra Medium
Bristol based producer with numerous releases collectively amassing hundreds of thousands of listens. Despite his name, there’s nothing medium about him, just large beats and big vibes. A connoisseur of jazz age steppers that cross over the whole bass music spectrum in a mashup style that will have your limbs flailing!

Captain Flatcap (DJ Set)
Festival hero and king of the squelch, Captain Flatcap brings the party vibes with him wherever he goes. He seamlessly fuses Swing, Funk, Folk & Brass with glitchy wonky sounds that will have you bouncing off the walls.

Mista Trick
A regular at Swing & Bass and a pioneer of the Swing Drum’n’Bass sound, we’re always stoked to have Mista Trick on our lineup. This is where the sounds of a 1930s knees up crossover with a 90s DnB rave!

It’s been over a year since we’ve had these two cats at Swing & Bass, but what a treat to bring them back. These guys are the driving force behind the unique Garage & Bassline Swing mashup style. Expect to hear prohibition era sounds with a 130BPM beat and bassline that will have you shouting BO!

Powello Bros.
This troublesome duo was born on a farm of goats in the fields of Glastonbury. They used their time on the farm to build up a repertoire of the finest Balkan, Gypsy, Swing & Funk infused bassy beats for your listening pleasure.

Ali Baba
Swing & Bass resident selekta Ali Baba will be opening the night with his broad selection of Vintage Remix. In the past he’s shared the stage with the likes of Sweet Female Attitude, Ed Solo, Black Sun Empire and Aries to name a few and he is known for his ability to get a room groovin’!

Dan de’Lion
This lion brings the fiyah whenever he is behind the decks with his unique blend of Funk & Swing infused Fun & Bass riddims, he will have ya skankin’!

Fizzy Gillespie
Swing & Funk Drum’n’Bass aficionado with a trunk full of bootlegs, dubplates & secret festival bangers that you won’t be able to get enough of!
