@thenedman: This song has some foundation in contemporary swing.
If you like it, you may wish to check out electroswing artists such as Caravan Palace (French; popular songs are Jolie Coquine and Suzy) and Parov Stelar (Austrian; perhaps try Catgroove). Electroswing incorporates elements of hip hop/house/D&B into the music.
There are also non-electro swing groups; very popular ones are Squirrel Nut Zippers, the Brian Setzer Orchestra, and Cherry Poppin' Daddies. The latter groups started in the 90s and a lot of them incorporate styles such as big band jazz, ska and rockabilly.
