Carlos Carvalhal labelled Swansea's performance in their 4-1 win over West Ham at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday as "rock and roll".
Sung-Yueng Ki, Mike van der Hoorn, Andy King and Jordan Ayew were on target before Michail Antonio claimed a late consolation for the hapless Hammers, with the victory moving Swansea out of the relegation zone up to 13th, above West Ham on goal difference.
Carvalhal could not hide his delight at his side's display, as Swansea picked up a seventh successive home win for the first time since they moved to the Liberty.
"It was rock and roll in the stadium," Carvalhal told Sky Sports. "Sometimes you dance to the music your opponents give out to you, such as when we played Liverpool and Arsenal.
"But we put out our own music and I am very happy with the win. We played with high intensity and that's why it took a while for King and (Andre) Ayew to get ready.
"Sometimes it takes three or four weeks, but today we played the way we train.
"Since I arrived, we have had some important victories, but I think this was the best performance.
"It was nearer what we want the team to do. With the ball, without the ball - the team did what we wanted. It was a fantastic performance."
The Ayew brothers - Andre and Jordan - took leading roles as Swansea coasted victory in South Wales.
Andre was involved in three of the goals against the club he left in January, while Jordan scored Swansea's fourth from the penalty spot.
"We had two brothers on the pitch, but it looked as though we had 11 brothers out there - and more if we had needed them," Carvalhal added. "We have a good commitment here and a good family. When you are feeling strong together it is a very positive feeling.
"The performance was the best since I arrived, the one nearest to what I want in everything - defensive organisation, transitions, set-pieces also."
