WHITE MINK:BLACK COTTON - VOLUME 3 (V/A) label:FRESHLY SQUEEZED (ZEST-060CD)

The sounds and style of the 1920s and 30s turned upside down and smuggled into the 21st century.


White Mink : Black Cotton (Electro Swing vs Speakeasy Jazz) Vol. 3 is a double digipack CD compilation and download album. As with the previous album-charting, silver-disc'd CDs, side one (White Mink) presents a diverse modern take, while the other side (Black Cotton) is all vintage. It is the latest, long-awaited, instalment in Freshly Squeezed's hugely succesful and highly influencial album series described as "Electro Swing's first landmark moment" by Mixmag. It is this series more than any other that was part of the van-guard of a global zeitgeist and that sets the gold standard for this new genre.


Compiled by label boss, DJ and world-wide radio host, Nick Hollywood, the first CD includes several exclusive tracks including a brand new remix of the Squirrel Nut Zippers, Kid Kasino (feat. Shea Soul) and Swing Republic not available anywhere else. CD 2 features 12 re-mastered classics from the prohibition-era's 78rpm jazz age and is dedicated to the memory of London's late DJ, El Nino.
