Aesthetics Wiki

Electro Swing, sometimes also called Swing House, is a musical genre which combines vintage or modern Swing with Jazz, House, Hip-Hop, and EDM. This aesthetic centers heavily on music.

Overall, electro swing is to do with partying and having a good time. It often gives off an atmosphere of positivity and joy.

Electro swing music is often remixed from the 1920s - 50s, which can cause the aesthetic to fall into the trope of romanticizing that era, and giving it a modern touch without putting the beautiful old-fashioned vibe away. It is especially important to remember that and appreciate that swing music is a form of Jazz, meaning many, if not most or all elements of swing are inspired by Black culture.
