Hidden Agenda: Detroit Swindle

  • Hidden Agenda welcomes back Dutch duo DETROIT SWINDLE to The Button Factory for a dj set this festive season. Detroit Swindle consist of Lars Dales and Maarten Smeets and a vibrant mix of Motown-soul, funk, hiphop and jazz inspired them from an early age on. After a varied exploration through techno and house, they met each other by mutual interest in Detroit inspired deep house and those early influences are clearly there to be heard throughout their music to this day. Their productions are best described as contemporary interpretations of classic soul tracks with melodical grooves, jazzy chords and bumpy bass-lines. So in short, if Marvin Gaye would have made house music, they would have been his biggest fans.
