Parov Stelar – Libella Swing

This little number caught me off guard – released late last year, this is yet another addition to the wonderful catalogue of Austrian underground artist Parov Stelar. For those of you unfamiliar with the man, he is singlehandedly marrying the old with the new – producing sexy, danceable beats with samples of the past – and to an astonishing degree.

Libella Swing is comprised of five tracks that are more upbeat than Stelar’s full lengths – driving bass beats accompany for the most part jazz and swing samples that transport you back to the dancefloor days of the 50’s, all the while keeping the tunes fresh and modern with that feel of classy, dark and sexy jazz bar niche.

Contained on this release is the amazing Homesick – originally appearing on his last LP Shine – on this offering it has been transformed to a full blown club mix – something i’ve been longing for of that song for a while. Libella swing offers a breakdown reminiscent of Daft Punk while still maintaning the classic Parov Stelar feel – the disc closes with Blind Alley (late night mix) which completes this EP off very nicely. If there was ever a time to get into Parov Stelar, it is now.
