Green Queen Music recording artists THE GENTLEMEN CALLERS of LOS ANGELES is the latest project from the writing and production partnership of Atom Smith and Buck Down. The project focuses mainly on electroswing and songwriting with a vintage bend. Their 14 year career together has spanned almost a dozen albums, as well as multiple projects for film, television, and performance, including the world renown MUTAYTOR, a 20 piece traveling tribal electro circus born in the Black Rock Desert over a decade ago.
In a short period of time, THE GENTLEMEN CALLERS of LOS ANGELES have established themselves globally as the world’s premiere American original electroswing act, and their music has become a staple of electroswing DJs all over the world. Their recent signing with the UK based GREEN QUEEN MUSIC has already launched a series of singles currently being remixed by some of the biggest names in swing, including BART & BAKER, DUTTY MOONSHINE, KIWISTAR, EFECTO, SOUNDNOMADEN TAVO, and DR. CAT just to name a few. In December of 2014,the duo headed out on their first headlining tour of Europe in December of 2014, a mere 11 months after beginning this new project. They have logged multiple festival appearances at LIGHTNING IN A BOTTLE, BURNING MAN, & ELECTRIC FOREST among others.
Their bombastic live shows effortlessly slide between readings of their own original material as well as some of the best in cutting edge, modern vintage music curated from around the world, seamlessly blending 1920’s big band, manouche, hip hop, house, balkan and American dust bowl era gospel in a heady cocktail of big bass rapturous, infectious fun.
Always impeccably dressed, The Gentlemen are known for their clinical attention to detail when it comes to production and performance, and their shows reflect thousands of hours of work spent perfecting the art of driving a dance floor crazy.
