Review: By his own prolific standards, 2016 has been a relatively quiet year for Adesse Versions, AKA hyped producer Kevin Gorman. Happily, Push It Along was worth the wait. You'll struggle to find a track with as much pent-up energy as opener "Tout It" - think spiralling, constantly building synthesizer motifs, electronic bleeps and a dense, bass-heavy rhythm track - while "E to E (Original Mix)" joins the dots between filter-heavy disco house and more muscular, warehouse-friendly vibes. Elsewhere, he doffs a cap to Theo Parrish on the jazzy deep house thrust of "Push It Along", before finishing with the deep, dreamy, dubby and beat-free warmth of "Ebony Roses".

Review: To date, Swiss quartet Alma Negra has carved a successful niche as makers of heavily percussive EP singles that look to the rhythms of Africa for inspiration. This outing for Heist Recordings draws on many similar influences, but shuffles further towards original production than their rework style back catalogue. Opener "Afrorleans" is a jaunty trip into shuffling Afro-house territory in the company of a cabal of Cajun musicians, while "Luanda Dub" is a booming, bass heavy late night trip full of swirling vocal samples and densely layered drum hits. If you are after some party-starting Afro-disco/deep house fusion of standout, then "Endless Summer" and a cracking Soulphiction remix of the same track will pushes a rubbery disco bassline to the fore to devastating effect.

Review: Following impressive collaborative outings on Dirt Crew and their own Splendor & Squalor label, Brame and Hamo once again join forces, this time for Detroit Swindle's Heist Recordings. Predictably, there's genuine warmth throughout, as the duo showcases more tactile deep house compositions. Opener "Parish Rumours" sets the tone, lacing filter-clad female vocal samples and twinkling melodies over a compressed, cymbal-heavy groove. The filters once again come to the fore on the sweet, soul-sampling "Ghetto For You", while "Hotshot" delivers the kind of loose, hazy and jazz-flecked deep house jam - think hazy horns, tumbling chords, held-note strings and bluesy vocal cut-ups - that evokes images of humid days reclining on Adriatic terraces and Mediterranean cliff-tops.

Circular City (Matthew Herbert's Let Yourself Go instrumental mix) - (7:30) 116 BPM
from $1.91
Review: There's very little to fault about Detroit Swindle's latest EP, which comes backed with remixes from born-again glitch-house maestro Matthew Herbert. The latter delivers a pair of quirky but typically inspired remixes of lead cut "Circular City". Whereas the Swindlers' original is built around rising and falling synthesizer melodies lines, drowsy bass, restless stabs and wonky bass, Herbert's versions cannily create energy and action via wild electronics and low-slung analogue instrumentations. The instrumental is good, but it's the version he's done featuring vocalist Zilla that really stands out. Elsewhere, "Sugar Sugar" is a smile-inducing chunk of deep house positivity, while "Runningoutof" melds their usual melodious dancefloor funk with a dash of Italo-disco.

Review: Amsterdam's Detroit Swindle duo head back to the Heist imprint after an impressive string of releases on labels such as Tsuba Records and Dirt Crew Recordings, and classy, tech-ready house is the order. "Allright (We'll Be)" is a disco-fuelled house gem with one of those vocal samples that'll log itself in your brain, while "Pursuit" is stranger, more wonky and a right burner when it comes to its percussion. "Heads Down", as the name suggests, is nuttin' but a club bomb and one hell of a DJ tool!

In Reverse - (7:53) 119 BPM
from $1.91
Review: It would be fair to say that Detroit Swindle has been on a great run of form, with last year's The Punch Drunk EP amongst their strongest work to date. This first missive of 2016 is equally as strong, offering four chunks of heavy dancefloor ammunition. "More Everything Please" sees them pepper a chunky house groove with restless disco cowbells and rolling, off-kilter organ riffs, while "Future Imperfect" sounds like their take on humid, tropical-influenced deep house. Elsewhere, there's a comforting warmth and hazy funk about woozy deep house stomper "Howsmusic", and the disco-sampling "In Reverse" sits somewhere between a locked-in disco-house thumper, and the looser, more soulful work of Detroit's Andras.

Tamarindus Hollandicus (Willie Burns remix) - (5:18) 129 BPM
from $1.91
Review: After an extended hiatus, Detroit Swindle returns to action for the first time since the autumn of 2016. Predictably, they're in fine form throughout. We're particularly enjoying title track "Can't Hold It", a bumping and energy-packed deep house cut smothered in swinging drum fills and what sound like jazz-funk instrumental samples. The warm, summery action continues on "Just Not Norma", a superior chunk of life-affirming disco-house deepness whose beats are pleasingly jazzy and dexterous. Arguably best of all, though, is the more heavily electronic "Tamarindus Hollandicus", where new age melodies and fizzing electronics weave in and out of a restless synth bassline and Italo-disco style percussion. Willie Burns' remix, a fusion of scattergun-techno attitude, proto house drum delays and swirling synths, is also superb.

Review: Daniel Leseman and Hans 'Junktion' Peeman first joined forces under the Fouk moniker late last year, delivering an impressive debut EP, First Things First, that skillfully combined the former's jazz-tinged rhythms with the latter's smooth deep house nous. There are plenty more reasons to be cheerful on this debut for Detroit Swindle's Heist Recordings imprint, not least the driving bass, jaunty jazz samples and warm chords of "Kill Frenzy". There's even more soul present on the loose house beats, glassy-eyed vocal samples and rich textures of "Leftys Bar", while "Ken Sent Me Release" is as woozy, wavy and dreamy as you'd expect. Soothing stuff, all told.

Review: This EP marks a welcome return to Heist Recordings from Fouk, the deep house collaboration between Daniel Leseman and Hans Peeman. There's naturally much to admire throughout, from the rubbery disco bass, hustling house beats and intergalactic synths of opener "F3000", to the pleasingly loose beats, clattering percussion hits and hard-worn disco-funk grooves of "See You on the Other Side", via the warm and toasty boogie/house fusion of "With Lazers". Improvisation-loving combo Mount Liberation Unlimited steals the show with a loose, languid and deliciously deep interpretation of "See You on the Other Side" that seamlessly fuses the best of both their and Fouk's respective production styles.

Review: On 2014's The Roundup, Heist Recordings family members remixed leading label releases from the previous 12 months. It was such a success that Detroit Swindle has decided to repeat the exercise, with similarly positive results. Across the five tracks, you'll find a groovy, clavinet-and-Rhodes heavy loop jam (Brame & Hamo's remix of Fouk's "Lefty's Bar"), some boogie-flavoured, soulful deep house haziness (Fouk reworking Brame & Hamo), a dash of broken deep house funk (Detroit Swindle's take on Nachtbraker's "You're Out Of Your Element"), and a wonderful combination of undulating breakbeat-house rhythms and eyes-closed musical touches (Nactbraker re-wiring M Ono's "Delaware State Route"). In other words, it's business as usual from one of deep house's most consistent labels.

Review: Part of the appeal of Frits Wentink's productions has always been their inherent wonkiness. While his take on deep house has always drawn on classic US house influences, these are often combined with curious synth melodies, off-kilter jazz samples or subtle nods towards UK garage. All of these inspirations can be heard on the Dutch producer's latest outing for Heist Recordings. There's much to admire on the toy-box melodies and bumping beats of "Child Of The Universe", the fluid, late night deepness of "Worldwide Deluxe Edition", and the drunken jazz-house shuffle of closer "Yeah But Maybe Never". Best of all, though, is "Rising Sun, Falling Coconut", a delicious fusion of slipped US garage grooves, heady late night vocal samples and wild, P-funk-on-acid synth lines.

Zitze - (5:35) 121 BPM
from $1.91
Review: Tipped as one of this year's breakout stars in deep house circles, German producer Max Graef may belong in that small percentile whose talent more than justifies the obligatory, never ending, wildly oscillating circles of hype. Last month's platter for Melbourne Deepcast kept the Juno office 1210 well serviced and this new release on Detroit Swindle's Heist label offers further proof of Graef's knack for heavily percussive house music distinguished by certain production idiosyncrasies. Lead track "Jungle" features Andy Hart and stands out because there's just so much detail and attention without ever sounding overly busy - the mark of a real talent. Raw Cuts era MCDE is an easy comparison with "Ignorance Is Bliss", but where most would lazily slap down a hastily cut up soul hook, Graef opts for an outer galactic vibe that threatens to explode with vivid colour. "Ztize" also rolls on a similar tip to Graef's celebrated compatriot but with Plessow currently on a production hiatus this newcomer offers fans of current soul and jazz indebted house music a compelling alternative.

from $1.91
Review: If it's sophisticated deep house you're after, Detroit Swindle's Heist Recordings usually delivers the goods. This latest missive is no exception. It comes from Australian producer Andy Hart, who has recently collaborated with Francis Inferno Orchestra and Max Graef, dropping 12"s on Melbourne Deepcast and Sleazy Beats Black Ops. Hart's style is deep, tactile and quietly soulful, with toasty pads and hazy melodies riding chunky grooves and warm basslines. The four tracks here stick to this formula, mixing up the styles and influences a little for good measure. So, there's a touch of sleaziness about the old school bump of "Hermano" and the bluesy "Epsilon Girls" (our pick), while the darting "The Same For Me" is an altogether smoother proposition.

Review: M Ono has been delivering occasional blasts of tech-tinged deep house since way back in 2010, via releases on such labels as 10th Circle and A Friend In Need. Here, he steps up to the big time, with a notable release on Detroit Swindle's Heist Recordings. Opener "Volle Schnauze" offers a near perfect fusion of jaunty electric piano riffs, swinging percussion, moody pads and a foreboding bassline, while the similarly loose and saucer eyed "Perle" is an altogether breezier affair. The picturesque "Delaware State Route" is almost Balearic in its' use of ear-pleasing melodies and touching, Motor City influenced electronics, while closer "Pegasus '83" boasts a little disco grunt amongst the acid-flecked electronics and old skool rave riffs.

Review: A quick glance at his Facebook page confirms that Nachtbraker, AKA producer Maurits Verwoerd, doesn't take life too seriously. Yet despite an eccentric streak, there's little novel, forced or needlessly silly about his music. This latest EP for regular home Heist Recordings is packed full of smooth, fluid, heavily electronic deep house. The title track rises and falls impressively, shifting shape and focus - from stripped-back deep house drum track to dreamy, tech-tinged dancefloor electronica, and back again - several times. The more analogue-focused "Bluebottle", all starburst synths, chunky rhythms and wavy pads - repeats the trick, before he shows his darker side on the decidedly wonky "Xanitape". The latter track benefits greatly from some eccentric electronics and quirky keys.

Review: Nachtbraker's latest expansive EP for Heist Recordings - his first release of 2016 - boasts a host of hot, floor-friendly excursions. The EP's first two missives offer two distinctly different takes on disco-house - the throbbing sub-bass, extra percussion hits and early Daft Punk riffs of "Gotta Act To React", versus the smooth, classic disco-sampling loop-jam "Pollo Con Pollo" - before the woozy, drawn out "Intermezzlow" allows the Dutch producer to showcase the groovy, downtempo side to his work. The accompanying "Intermezzo" is a jazzy, percussive deep house variation on the same sun-kissed theme, while "Gotta Act To React (Float Mix)" re-casts the EP's opening tune as a hazy deep house bumper.

Review: Following a recent outing on Hudd Traxx, Dutch DJ/producer Nachtbraker returns to Detroit Swindle's Heist Recordings with four more chunks of floor-friendly deep house. There's much to admire throughout, from the squidgy basslines, relentless cymbals and floatation tank chords of "Dark Roast", to the loose-limbed, triple-beat-goes-jazz flex of the wonderfully fluid title track. The eyes-closed chords, intricate melodies and undulating acid lines of the smoother "Gurl" impress, as does "You're Out of Your Element", a warm, rich and jazzy homage to Detroit deep house blessed with all manner of aural Motor City trademarks. While considered a bonus track (it was hidden away on the flipside of the vinyl version), it's arguably the best thing on a strong EP.

Review: Nebraska has been a busy boy of late, delivering killer material on both Mister Saturday Night and Delusions of Grandeur. Here he dons his favourite balaclava and joins Detroit Swindle's Heist. He begins with the groovy, loose and low-slung disco-house bump of "Khan's Bargain", which is also brilliantly remixed by obscure boogie specialist Tom Noble. The tempo increases dramatically on the wide-eyed deep house sprint of "The Blues", before Nebraska enhances his Balearic house credentials thanks to the blissful synthesizer arpeggio lines and swirling chords of "It Won't Be Long". The spacey, string-drenched shuffle of "Varkala" draws a fine EP to a close.

Review: Quite remarkably, Obas Nenor's 2015 debut 12", My Way Home, appeared on Moodyman's Mahogani Music imprint. Since then, he's released hot material on Strictly Rhythm and Sol Power Sound. Here, he pops up on Detroit Swindle's Heist imprint with another strong collection of hazy, low-slung deep house shufflers. He begins with the loose, cheesecake-rich warmth of "The Door", before dipping the tempo a little on the funk-infused groove jam "Glimpse Of Light". There's a pleasingly bluesy feel about the bold and melodious "UV Lights", while "Wakee" offers a nu disco-influenced take on Detroit Beatdown. Mr Tophat's dense, deliciously percussive remix of "The Door" completes an excellent package.

Review: In a time of airy melodies and faux jazz stylings, releases like Another Process are rare. Focusing on the darker end of tribal house, Organ Grinder's sound has echoes of Twilo-era New York mixed with San Fran dub. Indeed on "How Did I Get Here", the arrangement centres on a speaker-levelling low end - inspired by old Siesta releases - a tripped out vocal, insistent bleeps and not much else. "Changes All The Time" starts off in tracky mode but gradually slips into deeper territories, led by heavy claps, while the rasping rhythms of "The Valley Of Doom" is as mysterious sounding as an old Joey Beltram record on Nu Groove.

Review: This deluxe expansive EP - originally released on a 12" and 10" package - is the first in what Detroit Swindle promise will be an annual occurrence - a "family remix EP", where members of the Heist Recordings crew rework releases from the previous 12 months. It's a neat idea, and one resulting in some killer material. The Organ Grinder's surging, drum-laden rework of Frits Wentik's "Schrewd" is deliciously heavy, though it's Max Graef's loose, soulful reinterpretation of Detroit Swindle's "The Break Up" that's probably the standout. That said, there's plenty to cheer elsewhere, not least Nachtbraker's cowbell-laden, acid house-meets-nu-disco version of Max Graef and Andy Hart's "Jungle".

Review: Detroit Swindle's Heist imprint is back with another wicked release this time courtesy of Berlin live act Ouer. "The Ascent" is dusty and soulful deep house with the right amount of bounce to work a dancefloor. "Move Over" is dark and emotive and probably more suited to the early hours to set the mood. "Show Off" is the most energetic cut full of swing, shuffle and cut up vocal samples but just wait until those dark strings come in giving the track a real edge. Finally "Mess Around" is sexy and funky and definitely the most uplifting track on this EP. For fans of hardware driven deepness like Borrowed Identity, this guy is one to watch!

Review: Last time we heard from Parker Madicine was back in 2015, when the Italian producer impressed with an EP of Floating Points inspired goodness on Bastard Jazz. He's flipped the script slightly on this Heist Recordings outing, fixing his dusty jazz influences to loose, Detroit inspired deep house grooves and, in the case of fine opener "Heartbreaker", spacey synthesizer motifs. The darting, off-kilter electrofunk riffs and jammed-out drum machine beats return on "Zawinul", while "Placebo" is a fine chunk of woozy, head-in-the-clouds broken beat/deep house fusion. Byron The Aquarius steps up to remix the latter, serving up a jaunty, full-throttle deep house version rich in wide-eyed electronics and layered percussion hits.

Review: Heist Recordings brings down the curtain on another successful year with their now traditional Roundup release, an expansive EP featuring "family remixes" of material released over the previous 12 months. As usual, there's much to enjoy, from the cheery, disco-tinged goodtime bump of Detroit Swindle's rework of Obas Nenoor's "Wakee", to Frits Wentink's jazzy, lo-fi, swinging deep house remake of Detroit Swindle's "Future Imperfect". Other highlights include a skuzzy, acid-fired interpretation of Nebraska's "It Won't Be Long" by Nachtbraker, and Nebraska's sunny, jammed-out fix-up of Frits Wentink's "Rising Sun, Falling Coconut". Best of all, though, is Ouer's remix of Nachtbraker's "Pollo Con Pollo", which boasts twinkling electric piano solos riding a thrusting analogue bassline and breezy disco guitars.

Review: Thanks to a string of well-received releases on Wolf Music, Dutch deep house producer Frits Wentink is a man in demand. Here he builds on his growing reputation with a typically bass-heavy, floor-friendly four-tracker for Heist Recordings. Wentink's production style - eccentric but danceable, and prone to blending fuzzy, analogue-rich bottom end with all manner of curious musical flourishes - is unique, and all four tracks come blessed with his usual intriguing touches. "Ligament" is the most obvious deep house killer, though we're particularly fond of the rubbery bass, watery vocals and jazz keys of "Sauce" - though the bouncy "Shrewd" has the most cross-over potential. Either way, it's another excellent EP from the Dutchman.
