Dutty Moonshine is the creation of Michael Rack – a long-established DJ and musician with a penchant for the seedy world of vaudeville and even seedier basslines.

Described as the “Bastard child of Electro Swing”, Dutty Moonshine is anything but typical. Combining the classic sounds of the Swing Era with everything from Garage and Grime to Drum and Bass and Ghetto Funk, Dutty Moonshine creates a unique sound which is as relentless as it infectious.

This can be experienced nowhere more keenly than at live performances, which are characterised by their wild and raucous energy and expertly tied together by Michael’s charismatic hosting skills and mischievous personality.

2015 saw the birth of the Dutty Moonshine Big Band, a 13 strong live act comprising an 8-piece brass section, live drums and piano, as well as the vocal talents of Hypeman Sage and Maria Laveau. A long term dream that has finally come to fruition, the Big Band oozes the smokey atmosphere of a 1930’s Speakeasy, brought crashing into the 21st Century with an array of gritty synths and bass. In this short time, the Big Band have played an enviable list of festivals and shows, including landmark sets at Glastonbury, Boomtown and Shambala to name a few.

Although still making appearances as a solo artist, the Big Band is now the focus for Dutty Moonshine as it continues to grow and evolve. With an album on the way and a multitude of high profile shows in the pipeline, the future is indeed shining bright for the purveyors of this hi-octane, genre-defying and eminently enjoyable music.

*** Praise for Dutty Moonshine ***

“Absolutely phenominal masters of unique mixes that some how can grab acoustic brilliance of the Gypsy and Swing world and slam them screaming into the 22 nd century. For a slice of the future with a digit in the past get these guys” – Chris Tofu – Electro Swing Club

“Played with these guys a few times and they never fail to rock the shit out of it” – JFB – 2 x UK DMC Champion

“Dutty Moonshine’s set was definitely the highlight of my Secret Garden festivities. Decadent, glamorous, fun and darn right sexy… Toe tappin’, hip shakin’, ball breakin’, we couldn’t stop. Long live the mighty Dutty” – Kate from the Puppini Sisters
