2013 – Detroit Swindle (NL)

detroit swindle together 2013

Detroit Swindle consist of Lars Dales and Maarten Smeets, 2 guys that, without actually growing up together, have had practically an identical musical upbringing. A vibrant mix of Motown-soul, funk, hiphop and jazz inspired them from an early age on and after a varied exploration through techno and house, they met each other by mutual interest in Detroit inspired deephouse.
Detroit Swindle have a clear vision on the music they produce and play. If you can’t nod your head to it, it’s probably not theirs and they probably won’t like it. Their productions are best described as contemporary interpretations of classic soul tracks with melodical grooves, jazzy chords and bumpy bass-lines. So in short, if Marvin Gaye would have made house music, they would have been his biggest fans.

2012 is the year of their first releases. With their ‘Starvin EP’ on Saints & Sonnets, they place themselves amongst highly acclaimed artists like Roman Flügel, Ethyl and Huxley. The second EP of 2012 dropped on Dirt Crew and got raving reviews and massive support from artists like Laurent Garnier, DJ Sneak, Eats Everything, Jimpster and many more. Together with the B.OST.ON EP, that was published by Murmur, they got an unheard of double 9.0 review in DJ Mag.
Late 2012 they solidified their starting success with an EP on the legendary Freerange imprint.

Already playing Live & DJ sets at mayor venues like Panorama Bar, Tresor and Zoo Project they have rapidly earned a solid spot in the international nightlife. Their upcoming work includes a follow up EP on Dirt Crew, remixes for Medlar, Homework , Deep Future, Zoo Look and more exciting stuff still in the pipeline.

Detroit Swindle are currently working on their 2013 release schedule and their live-show. For (DJ / LIVE) bookings or other inquiries, contact their bookers by email and be sure to follow them on their social media.

"The festival’s seventh year was its best yet… Every day of the week there was at least one—and often several—things to look forward to."

"The core notion of the festival … isn’t just to provide a good time, but to illustrate the fertile mix of art and technology intrinsic to current-day Boston."

"The sixth edition of Together ... was a reminder of how much Boston still has to offer for the tribes of dance music fans who live here ... Despite its size, Together pulled off an impressive range of sounds from across the electronic spectrum."
