We've been fans of the always cool, calm and collected Detroit Swindle for sometime now and can't wait for their second album out later this month.
'High Life' sees them collaborate with a number of artists but none flow as easily as this gem with South London R'n'B treasure Tom Misch. Treat yourself.

Detroit Swindle - Allright (We'll Be)(128kps)
Detroit Swindle – AKA – Lars Dales and Maarten Smeets are back with their first new material in a year and it’s great!
The two have been making waves, particularly in the UK over the past month and it’s excellent to have them back in full swing. From bringing their own ‘Great Escape’ party to Leeds to performing an endearing set at Fabric on Valentines day, it seems like almost the perfect time to bring you an exclusive first listen to the pairs brand new ‘The Punch Drunk EP’
The extended play leads off with ‘Allright (We’ll Be)’ a feel-good slice of future-retro discoid filter vocal house. The Dutch duo have nothing to do with Detroit – or techno – but have crafted a track that plays like a classic Nervous or Strictly Rhythm soundtrack.
Second track ‘Pursuit’ is more of chuggy, deeper track enthusing smooth, melodic synth pads, deep, groovy low-end sounds and easy-listening piano chords.
The EP is set for release through the duo’s own label Heist Recordings on the 23rd February and will be available through all major music distribution sites.
High quality house music is, no doubt, a specialty of Kerri Chandler’s, and his groove infused ‘Get Out’ is no exception. A powerful remix package is on its way for Kerri’s own Madhouse Records via his Matrix alias, and Mixmag has grabbed the Detroit Swindle take, which rewinds it all the way back with the infectious vocal samples from the original released all the way back in 1992 on Madhouse. The remix package, along with takes from Peggy Gou, Josh Butler and Jimpster, is out February 9.

A1 Huh, What!
A2 Huh, What! (Laszlo Dancehall Exercise)
B1 The Fat Rat
B2 Monkey Wrench
This is the first EP taken from Detroit Swindle’s upcoming debut album “Boxed Out” to be released on the 24th of March 2014 on Dirt Crew Recordings.
To heaten up the anticipation on the long awaited debut album by Amsterdam’s finest Lars Dales and Maarten Smeets we give you three tracks from the album as a little teaser to what is to come on the full length. First up is the title track “Huh, What!” a true Detroit Swindle banger that takes us back to pumping Chicago old school house times. Much like their last EP on Dirt Crew that included “John Doe” this new tune will (and we don’t like this expression but can’t think of another way to explain the sheer brutal power of this track) “destroy” the dancefloors!
If that wasn’t enough bass in your face we got Leon Vynehall and A1 Bassline under their “Laszlo Dancehall” moniker to rip ‘Huh, What!’ to shreds, resulting in a dark, pounding, straight up jackin’ techno groove. Very raw and edgy, tweaking the original’s key elements perfectly to join the dark groove going on. Definitely not for the faint of heart.
The B-Side takes us back to that sweet and deep Detroit Swindle house groove. “The Fat Rat” is much in the style of their last “The Make Up to Break Up” release on their own “Heist” imprint. A groovy percussive and soulful stabby house excursion, Amsterdam to Detroit via New York and back!
“Monkey Wrench”, the last track on this EP, is just beautiful and quite possibly one of the highlight down tempo house tracks of the Album. It has this slow groove we all love from the Swindle’s and a combo between the warm sound of the rhodes and the electronic feel of the arpy bass that really makes you love the track more and more each time you play it.
Viva Detroit Swindle!
And stay tuned for “Boxed Out”, the debut album on CD, 2LP and Digital.
Artist : Detroit Swindle
Title : 64 Ways Feat. Mayer Hawthorne

Pre-Order Vinyl :
Following the great success of Detroit Swindle's "Boxed Out" Album we present you the second single take out. Their collaboration with Mayer Hawthorne on “64 Ways" already gained massive support from DJ's and radio stations around the globe in the past weeks and we're proud to present you this remix pack with none other than Kerri Chandler, Kraak & Smaak and Detroit Swindle's remix of Detroit Swindle (Inception anyone?).
It's an honor to have one of the godfathers of House: Kerri Chandler on remix duties. He has been a great supporter of the guys over the past years, often showing off his piano skill over "Guess What" and generally supporting a lot of The Swindlers tunes. He turned the original version of "64 Ways" in a true Kerri "Kaoz" Chandler tune with the use of his trademark key progressions and drums. Don't miss out on the instrumental if vocals aren't really your thing.
The second remix is done by the guys themselves and oh boy what a monster tune it is! Stripped down to just a few basics from the original, adding a lovely filtered key loop, they made a deep dance floor burner in true Swindle style: "swing, drop, and everything else".
As a final to this fine remix pack we asked fellow Dutch house heads Kraak & Smaak to return the favor on the remix tip after Detroit Swindle remixed their track "The future is yours" with Ben Westbeech. They came up with a full on Disco House stomper, with a bass line that will stick with you for the rest of the day and an irresistible disco feel.
Have fun dancing to these great cuts! we for sure can't sit still :)
For this installment of our month mix we've decided to give you the recording of our last set at Studio 80 in Amsterdam on our own club night 'The Great Escape'.
We're looking forward to the next edition on Friday the 14th of August, with Roman Rauch (AT), Nachtbraker & Radio Noet-Noet!
