Swanky Tunes started their career in 1998 and played the first live in the same year.
They have changed many styles before have found their own sound: at first it was a kind of a big beat mixed with the sound of vintage synthesizers, then they change style into more electro-house sounding. And for now it’s a great cocktail of styles influenced by French-house scene, early Depeche Mode, nowa days house music and electro 80’s.
As for Russia they achieved almost impossible - due to their persistence the guys got recognition of Russian critics and now they are trying to do the same all over the world.
The first worldwide vinyl single “The Game/Life Focus” of Swanky Tunes from debut album “Streamline”, out now on major company “ZYX/Media” (Germany) which is supported by many djs, like: Kris Menace (Compuphonic, Work it Baby, Defected), Patrick Alavi (Roxour, Sugarland), Mason (Dj/Producer) (Middle Of The Road, Great Stuff Recordings), Delphine Queme (Bureau Records), Ricky Ryan aka Can Costa (Buenos Aires, Argentina), Blendbrank (Bugeyed Records) etc…
In Russia Swanky Tunes work with “Uplifto Records” which belongs to Sergey Pimenov (ex. PPK). Russian version of “Streamline” is already released and it’s became almost successful.
