SWING & BASS PRESENTS: THE JITTERBUG BALL
This April, Swing & Bass presents: The Jitterbug Ball! This is going to be our biggest show of the year, and this time we’re taking our show to Spanky’s!

Coming to The Jitterbug Ball are: Jamie Berry, CATJAM, Sacha Dieu, Fizzy Gillespie, Ali Baba, The Bard & Meelyhoops! Come and enjoy the sounds of the Vintage Remix, and get on your dancing shoes and get ready to jump and jive the night away!
1930's meets Circus!
Jamie Berry is one of the best Electro Swing producers in the world, and we are super excited to be bringing him to Swing & Bass. His music sees him taking the vintage sounds of the 1920’s & 30’s and fusing them with House, Garage and sometimes even Hip-Hop, resulting in wobbly bass-fueled madness which you just cannot help but dance to. Jamie has played at some of the UK’s largest festivals, including Boomtown and Beat-Herder, as well as regularly playing all over the world, in countries such as Germany, France & Canada; and now at Spanky Van Dyke’s for Swing & Bass! This is going to be huge!
Mind Your Potatoes Electro Swing Mix:
The very first ever act we brought to Swing & Bass is returning for our biggest show yet! Catjam are pioneers of the Garage Swing sound, if you like Swing and you like Garage, then you will love these guys! These two are all about taking Electro Swing and turning it on it’s head, coming together to create gully riddims with a vintage flava! They have played at loads of festivals and nights across the UK including: Bestival, Boomtown, Swingamajig and even the Electro Swing Club in London. Catjam have been on the 1’s and 2’s for years, and their productions will have you shouting ’BO’! more than a gassed wave head at a Craig David concert!
UK Garage & Drum'n'Bass meets Electro Swing Mix:
Sacha Dieu is the King of Electro Swing, and he is on his way to Swing & Bass! Sacha is known for his extensive collection of vintage beats, specialising in Electro Swing & Balkan Gypsy styles. His ’(S)winging it’ mix on Soundcloud is in the top 3 most played Electro Swing mixes in the world, with over 630,000 plays! He has shared the line up with some huge acts, including, Caravan Palace, Parov Stelar, The Correspondents and even Miss. Dynamite! On top of all this, he has also performed at major festivals such as: Glastonbury, Boomtown & Bestival to name a few, as well as numerous international gigs in countries such as France, Italy & Croatia! A true seasoned veteran, a masterclass behind the decks.
(S)winging It Mix:
Your host & compére Fizzy Gillespie is back again to bring you more vintage beats to shake your booties to! Expect something a bit different from his usual Drum’n’Bass sound, this time around he is going to be opening your evening with downtempo Vintage beats from his collection. Fizzy has supported acts such as Dutty Moonshine, The Correspondents & Electric Swing Circus and has played at UK festivals such Bestival, Boomtown & Wilderness; as well as playing some of the leading vintage nights across the country.
Fizzy's Cloud of Sounds:
Back again at Swing & Bass after popular demand! After smashing it back in February, we had no choice but to bring him back for our big show at Spanky’s. He has played at local venues such as Rescue Rooms, Spanky’s and The Maze, where he has supported internationally renowned acts such as Pied Piper, Sweet Female Attitude and Ed Solo. Expect nothing less than pure juicy ghetto funkyliciousness from your selekta, the remix injecta, Ali Baba!

Having recently also played at Cirque Du Soul at Rock City, The Bard is quickly finding himself becoming a recognisable name across the city. Expect nothing less than fun swingin' vintage themed beats!
