Parov Stelar – The Art of Sampling – CD
(Island Records) I came late to the whole Parov Stelar party only hearing his music when I first started listening to electro-swing earlier this year. I feel he is at the forefront of the whole movement and though many of the songs by this prolific artist do not fit into that genre, they are all fun, danceable and amazing. The band itself primarily consists of Parov doing the programming along with a bassist, vocalist, drummer and three horn players to fully round out the sound. If you want a true taste of electro-swing look no further.
