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.


Music is central to electro swing. The aesthetic cannot be complete without the music element.
