Secret Solstice Warm Up w/ Detroit Swindle @ Junk Southampton – May 2015
02.May.15 @ 22:00 - 05:00£7
Pre-empting our Summer venture to the infamous Secret Solstice festival it is our honour to welcome Detroit Swindle to Junk, having caused so many memorable moments with us in the past.
Detroit Swindle (Heist Recordings)
Not only will they be knocking the dance floor bandy on the night, but they will also be joining us at the Summer festival in Iceland alongside Moodymann, Droog, Artwork and our own Luca Pilato.
Lars Dales & Maarten Smeets have had quite a run the last few years. From making music for the hell of it, to making tens of thousands of fans all over the world happy with their releases, mixes and perfomances; It’s almost like they appeared out of thin air. With a string of releases on renowned labels like Dirt Crew, Freerange and Tsuba, they’ve sucker punched the house scene and waved around their 12” scepter to rule them all.
The duo of honoree Detroiters have a clear vision on the music they produce and play. If you can’t nod your head to it, it’s probably not theirs and they probably won’t like it. Their productions are best described as contemporary interpretations of classic soul tracks with melodical grooves, jazzy chords and bumpy bass-lines – all sprinkled with that signature shuffle and expertly deployed drops.
