Electro Swing: A Paul Borg & Sandor Jozsa collaboration
Paul Borg and Sandor Jozsa collaborate on another album project for West One Music Group. This new production taps into the Electro Swing scene with a fun mix of retro hot club & 21st century productions. Seven months in the making, Paul and Sandor had to painstakingly recreate sounds of the 1920s and 30s – recording an array of specialist musicians and vintage instruments, before then applying some contemporary DSP to proceedings to give the album an authentic feel. “Due to the nature of Production Music we can’t just use third party samples, so everything had to be composed, performed and even recorded as original content before then re-sampling and processing for the 21st century” comments Paul.
The album will soon be available at itunes, or you can access and listen to it now at: http://www.westonemusic.com/album?catno=WOM_WOM_0274
