Review: Hirsute producers Lars Dale and Maarten Smeets have enjoyed a great 2012, dropping well thought of singles on Freerange, Dirt Crew and Murmur. Here they round off a productive 12 months with another missive for Dirt Crew. Built around a soaring, emotionally rich bluesy vocal sample, "Guess What" sounds like a more energetic take on jazz-flecked Detroit deep house, with just the right amount of old US garage flavour. "John Doe" takes a similar approach, but moves further towards strobelight-flecked late night groovery - all cut-up vocal hits, relentless organs and swinging drums. A solid package is completed by Leftside Wobble's remake of "Guess What", a deliciously deep and swirling version that demonstrates his continued development as a producer.

Review: Dutch duo Detroit Swindle are set to release their hotly-anticipated debut album, Boxed Out, on Dirt Crew this March. This EP gives a taste of what's to come, offering three album tracks and a booming Laszlo Dancehall rework of the title track (think '90s Sound Factory-era NYC tribal stomp). There's naturally plenty to enjoy, from the retro-futurist garage keys and bumpin' grooves of "The Fat Rat", and the midtempo Balearic house sweetness of "Monkey Wrench" (think warm keys and swooshing electronics), to the hands-in-the-air, vests-off throb of "Huh, What!", the EP's most rush-inducing moment.

Review: In the past 18 months, Dutch duo Detroit Swindle has come from nowhere to become one of deep house's go-to names. This three-tracker for Tsuba - their first for Kevin Griffiths' label - is another 'must-check' release. Lead cut "Sometimes" is typical of their output to date; deep, stylish, quietly soulful and blessed with relentless riffs that propel the track forwards at a rate of knots. Arguably better is "That Freak Stuff", a slick chunk of deepness blessed with some rougher drums, an addictive bassline and some atmospheric, whispered vocal samples. Soulphiction remixes, turning the track on its head thanks to shuffling analogue drums, a fuzzy bassline and some glistening pianos.

Review: Detroit Swindle's debut album, Boxed Out, confirmed Lars Dales and Maarten Smeets' position as one of the most talented deep house duos of recent years. Here, they take a back seat, as tracks from that album are handed over to a quartet of remixers. Perhaps the most ear-catching rub is MRSK's DJ Sneak style loop funk rub of "He's Just The Guy, You Know?", a whirlwind of tough, bumpin' drums and "Red Alert"-esque slap bass. There's plenty to enjoy elsewhere, too, from the warm chords and chunky grooves of Cuthead's take on "Me, Myself & You", to the soulful fluidity of Jimpster's immersive remix of "B.Y.O".

Review: Amsterdam's Detroit Swindle duo pair up and land back on Jimpster's Freerange imprint...and you know that means swinging, dusty house grooves for all! The title track "Figure Of Speech" is a pleasant, beautifully Detroitified house swayer featuring some heavy chord action, and "Victoria's Secret" adds a further layer of beat-swing around cheery melodies for the summer haze. Flip the disc and you got "Live At The Cosmic Carnival", a disco-fuelled house anthem and another floor-filler to fill Swindle's ever-impressive catalogue.

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!

Review: There is little doubt that Detroit Swindle have positively owned modern high-end house music since ripping onto the scene back in 2012, kicking Dirt Crew, Murmur, Tsuba and more into touch with their red-blooded productions that pack pounding drums, punchy bass and swooning chords into crafty grooves of the most commanding kind. They're at it once again for Freerange after last year's Creep, kicking off with the joyous explosion of the title track with its righteous diva vocals, tasty Rhodes lines and hooky beat. "Under The Spell" keeps the same garage shuffle but homes in more on the bittersweet chord tones as a source of their soul, but there's still room for a marginally more restrained roller in the shape of "Woman". Crue twists things up with a murky remix of "Unfinished Business" that ditches the melodics in favour of pure rhythmic thrust.

In Reverse - (7:53) 119 BPM
from $1.97
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 $1.97
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.

from $1.97
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: Detroit Swindle have been showing distinct signs of musical development in recent times, filling their debut album Boxed Out with sensual but floor-friendly deep house shot through with classic American influences. 64 Ways, featuring the delicious vocals of Stones Throw-affiliated blue-eyed soul boy Mayer Hawthorne, is a perfect example. Here, the slinky original is joined by a slew of new remixes. The undoubted highlight is Kerri Chandler's vocal take, which ekes even more soul out of Hawthorne's vocal before charging off on a tough, chunky percussive tip. Elsewhere, the Amsterdam duo delivers a tasty piano-heavy late night Dub, before fellow Dutch producers Kraak & Smaak weigh in with a stab-happy retro-futurist late '80s Belgian house take.

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: 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: It's been a swift rise for Lars Dales & Maarten Smeets, the Amsterdam-based pair known as Detroit Swindle, since they first appeared together across a clutch of 12"s in 2012. Though Detroit Swindle have graced Tsuba, Heist, Freerange and Murmur over this period, it's Dirt Crew Recordings they are most closely associated with so it makes perfect sense for Dales and Smeets to issue their debut LP on the German label. Boxed Out features some thirteen tracks and features guest spots from Mayer Hawthorne and Sandra Amarie. The horizontal beatdown of "You, Me, Here, Now" and Quantic sampling "Thoughts Of She" are highlights.
