______________________________________________________________________

Axle is a gear built to fix clockwork toys, but his dreams of adventure come true when he is swept up in a journey that will land him right in the middle of machines bigger and badder than he could ever imagine. With unique rolling and magnetizing game mechanics, and a rich steampunk world, Axle is sure to be a platformer game you can't put down!

seeyoutmorra asked:

What are some good electroswing bands you'd recommend?

mixiekins:

  • Caravan Palace (especially their new Panic album! God, I don’t think there’s a single Caravan Palace track that doesn’t getcha up outta your seat.) 
  • Parov Stelar (he may have founded the genera, but most of his stuff is…bland. there are a few awesome gems, and booooooy are they gems. Examples would be Jimmy’s Gang, The Golden Boy, Catgroove, Libella Swing, Room Service, The Snake, Booty Swing, The Flame, The Mojo Radio Gang, and not gonna lie Happy End makes me cry like a baby every fuckin time.)
  • Kid Kasino (rather new artist on the scene, but solid stuff. sometimes too much electro without enough swing, but still good.)
  • Realboy (they seem to only dabble in it, but The Ritz, Suck My Swing, and their Mr. Sandman remix are all good. damn good.)
  • Restless Leg Syndrome (YES. GOOD. Fly as fuck, ok????? OK.)
  • Wolfie Razz-ma-tazz (very intense and a bit more wub-dub than is typical of electroswing. there’s some great DJ sets of other artists up on their soundcloud.)
  • Swing Republic (a lot like wolfie. Any Old Thing and On The Downbeat are good tracks, too.)

electro-swing.com always has lots of new and great talent, too. These listed are just the ones I listen to the most.

Also, while I’m at it, TARBOY is gooooood decopunk inspiration. Just because.

Here’s a few downloads for anyone who wants them
