Detroit Swindle @ I'm A House Gangster - ADE Edition, Baut

Earning their stripes through a string of sultry deep house cuts affiliated with solid house imprints like Tsuba, Dirt Crew and and murmur. The dynamic Dutch duo of Detroit Swindle have carved out a superb niche in an arguably over-saturated Deep House environment over the last few years. Their fresh twist on 90's inflected grooves, with choppy diva vocals, light and airy pads, and underpinned with funk and disco flavours at times, ensures it's smooth and sophisticated House music from the off.

The handsome Dutch natives look very much at home at the Amsterdam Dance Event. Gaining huge popularity in the UK and the rest of Europe with their crisp take on current deep house vibes, it's a sure-fire recipe for success at DJ Sneak's “I'm A House Gangster” event at ADE. Both grooving and moving in unison with the beat, warming up proceedings with steadfast sophistication, they look intent on delivering music that is both attention grabbing to the girls on the front row, and punchy enough to keep the real heads nodding further back.

Masterfully weaving through peaks and troughs of jazzy and welcoming house, enticing an attractive European crowd into the pulsing red lights of the Baut club. It is a testament to the allure of their unique sound, holding strong during a week of star-studded ADE events, a mere stones throw away with the infamous Trouw Nightclub just meters away next door.

Full of classic leaning samples and well thought out cuts of accessible house rhythms, the pair perfectly intertwine moments of intelligent and fresh tracks, with a warm and rising selection of records.

A fine example of a diverse and engaging deep house workout, you are guaranteed to be moving through this one. Enjoy!
