Doberman & Bacchus- The Swing Hop EP
The experimental project sees the duo’s characteristically rugged bars and breakneck flows colliding with live instrumentation supplied by Birmingham-based fusion pioneers The Electric Swing Circus.
With additional guest vocals by London-based jazz vocalist Iris Athanasiadi and scratches by JabbaThaKut, the sounds on the EP range from the band’s usual cocktail of swing, electro and hot club jazz elements to hip-hop and dub territory.
The rappers first met the band at a chance meeting in Birmingham’s Pirate Studios, having booked overlapping rehearsal slots in the same room. After discussing their mutual love of old school boom bap, band frontman Tom Hyland suggested sending across some instrumentals, and the project was born.
Recorded by ExP (Flame Griller/Tough Crowd) and mastered at Phantom Power Studios, The Swing Hop EP will be available on all major streaming platforms, and available for free download on Bandcamp.
All instrumentals are original compositions written and performed by The Electric Swing Circus
Mixed by ExP at DubWhy Studios
The Swing Hop EP is out now:
