Detroit Swindle, real names Lars Dales and Maarten Smeets, have had quite a run over the last few years. With a string of releases on renowned labels including Dirt Crew, Murmur, Freerange and Tsuba, they’ve sucker punched the house scene and waved around their 12” scepter to rule them all.
Praised for their energetic DJ sets weaving through soul, funk and jazz inspired house, they put as much energy into their productions as they do into their record label Heist Recordings. They established their own imprint in 2013 and have since released records from the likes of Max Graef, Andy Hart, Frits Wentink, Nebraska, Nachtbraker and more.
With just 5 weeks to go until Heist Recordings takeover “The Terrace” at Farr Festival on Thursday 14th July alongside label mates Nebraska, Frits Wentink and Nachtbraker we invited Detroit Swindle to record a mix and to give us a taste of what to expect. Their podcast features music from Mr G, Doc Daneeka, Trevino, K-Hand and more.
“We’re very stoked to be hosting our Heist stage at Farr Festival this year, and to be able to bring all our Heist label buddies over! This mix has all the bits and pieces that make up our DJ sets lately, a little bit disco, house, some more electronic tracks. Basically everything you can expect on our stage at Farr Festival coming July.”
