detroit swindle opener

Detroit Swindle was formed in 2011 by Lars Dales (1981) and Maarten Smeets (1982). It all started after Lars – who was programming a few nightclubs in Amsterdam – had to fire Maarten for playing too much underground music. They started talking and found out they had a mutual love for Motown, hip-hop and early house music. Not long after, they started making music together and the rest as they say, is history.

When trying to define their ‘success’, it’s hard to pin it down to just one thing. Perhaps it’s their talent to find that typical groove that has been so widely acclaimed. Or maybe it’s their ability to connect musical styles spanning over more than 5 decades (and continents) into their sets and productions.

Detroit Swindle have also been playing live shows right from the start, and have expanded their setup ever since. Currently, they’re touring with an extensive setup of analog and digital instruments and they’re bringing everything from key players to ground breaking live visuals with their show ‘Detroit Swindle & The Programme’, which will be showcased for the first time during ADE 2015.
