Eric always set composer, arranger and producer all in himself.

“Unlike before, where we’ll each compose a song individually in our Swing albums, this time, for the first time, we’re composing every song together.” says Eric, “Also, this will retain all the “Swing” elements, where i’m more POP and Jerald more funky and jazzy.”

Swing indisputably has you swinging, dancing and stomping your feet as soon as you can hear the very first bars of technotrad which bring back the good old kitchen partys of yesteryear. La vie comme ça, where sampling and scratching are combined to the fiddle and the mandolin, make for a remarkable mix.
