Electro-swing returning to the Wave

Grant Lazlo’s sound is the amalgamation of his multiple loves in music.

Grant Lazlo’s sound is the amalgamation of his multiple loves in music.

It melds electronic beats with a subtle use of vintage sounds in a way that’s called today ElectroSwing but Grant Lazlo’s sound can be funky, ska, minimal electro or even pop.

The common point between all his tunes is their aim to make you move your feet ’n booty listening to bouncy, refashioned vintage sounds.

He’ll perform March 15 at the Waverley Hotel. Special guests the NakedDjs will also perform.

Grant Lazlo is Paul Hzard, a French electronic music producer from Marseille, who grew up surrounded by the music of Duke Ellington, Stevie Wonder and Django Reinhardt.

From his earliest steps in music until his latest minimal-electro-swing productions he always wanted to pay tribute to all his idols using ideas and melodies from history’s classic music back catalogue.

Grant Lazlo has refashioned vintage sounds with fresh electronic beats and sounds that give swing a second youth and electro an organic way of bouncing! Grant Lazlo’s music is a time machine picking gimmicks from all times and genres including soul, jazz, reggae, funk, hip-hop, blues and pop.

Whilst growing up and learning music Grant Lazlo was influenced from the French Style with the emergence of electronic and deep-house to dub-step, from trip-hop to minimal techno. That’s why the newly born electro-swing genre fits Lazlo’s style so well.

With electro-swing he expresses all his love for the jazzy sounds bringing everyone to the dance floor with up-tempo beats and bass lines only heard in electro music.
