Big Swing Soundsystem

Kaptin and Matt The Hat first started spinning vintage classics, rehashes + remixes back in 2005 under the name The Chaps until life sent them in different directions. Matt became the proprietor of an Inflatable Church and headed off around the festival circuit, whilst Kaptin discovered Glitch-Hop and all manner of new Electronic genres, and with his Chrome Kids crew set about providing mixes for the likes of BBC Radio 1 and BBC 1Xtra, and well received DJ sets at festivals such as Glastonbury and Bestival.

Some time later, the legendary Chris Tofu introduced them to Electro Swing, and on finding their common love for the new genre, they dusted off their cravats and tweed jackets and under their new Big Swing Soundsystem moniker, set off into the wider world together again to unleash their selections of Swing, Nu-Swing, Electro Swing, Swing hop, Chap-Hop and other such treasures onto the unsuspecting public at large.

They have since been found at events such as Electro Swing Club, White Mink, Hot Club de Swing and Speakeasy, as well as Glastonbury, Bestival, BoomTown Fair, Clockenflap and Festival Number 6, so keep an eye out for when they hit a town or festival near you.

Matt the Hat and Kaptin in full swing.
