Everything from Motown to the good old days of disco. These aren’t only the influences of Detroit Swindle, this pretty much sums up their new EP called “The Punch Drunk EP” which is already out on their own label Heist Records. Detroit Swindle are Lars Dales & Maarten Smeets and both have had quite a run the last few years. With a string of releases on renowned labels like Dirt Crew, Freerange, Tsuba and DJ sets at Panorama bar, Fabric or Social Club they’ve gained a lot of attention and success.
All Right (We’ll Be) is an uptempo affair at its 128 BPM, with an irresistibly sexy hook that just makes you wanna give free hugs for its full 7:10 minutes. Pursuit has that classic Detroit Swindle vibe with an almost acid based synth rolling on in the background, giving the track the core of its energy. Heads Down is the deepest of the three, where a particularly shuffling set of offbeat toms create the groove and a set of warm synths give you a simple dancefloor choice to go hands up, or heads down.
You can grab the EP on Beatport. Do it!
