The Dutch duo put out most of their music through their own label Heist Recordings and have quickly gained popularity through their early releases like “The Wrap around”, and “The Break up”. Just recently they have released an EP for the legendary AUS Music which saw them exploring a more electronic sound, while their edit of Gaoulé Mizik’s ‘A ka titine’ showed their appreciation of world music made ready for the dancefloor.
On their sophomore album ‘High life’ (released in 2018) they showcased their love for electronic funk, upbeat house and wordly electronics and worked together with artists like Tom Misch, Seven Davis Jr., Jungle by Night and Lorenz Rhode. Detroit Swindle have remixed artists like Tom Misch, Kerri Chandler, Mayer Hawthorne and Hercules & Love Affair.
As avid record collectors of both old and new music, their DJ style is as varied as their taste in music. Rather not limiting themselves to a certain sound, Detroit Swindle will play just about anything. So whether it’s classic house, obscure disco, African funk, soulful techno or any other genre from across the globe: if it puts a smile on your face, they’ll play it.
Detroit Swindle also perform live together with their longtime friend and collaborator Lorenz Rhode. Lorenz Rhode is a key player from Germany with exceptional skills on the piano and talk box and their live show is critically acclaimed, with Red Bull Music, DJMag and XLR8R as avid supporters. Together, the three have played festivals like Weather festival in Paris, Mutek in Montreal, Dour and Wildeburg, as well as venues like Jazz Café in London, Nitsa in Barcelona and SmartBar in Chicago.
