Detroit Swindle | Boxed Out | The Debut Album

Out 24 March 2014

01 B.Y.O.
02 64 Ways feat. Mayer Hawthorne
03 Me, Myself & You
04 Thoughts of She
05 Monkey Wrench
06 Shotgun
07 Center of Gravity feat. Sandra Amarie
08 For the Love of...
09 The Fat Rat
10 He's Just This Guy, You Know?
11 Huh, What!
12 F6
13 You, Me, Here, Now

The Debut Album by Detroit Swindle. It has everything you would expect from the Swindles, some slow burners with a hint of disco, some deep house, some banging club monsters and hey, even some leftfield hip hop jams.

The album opens with "B.Y.O.", a track that balances nicely between the DS shuffle and an old school New York style block party. The track is a taste of things to come for the rest of the album, hinting towards a big party vibe, but mellow enough to make it a really interesting listen.

The one thing Detroit Swindle are known for best is their knack for picking the right vocals. For Boxed Out, they came up with some perfect partnerships. They recorded "64 Ways" with none other than one of America's finest soul singers: Mayer Hawthorne. Being a fan of their sound he proposed to do a track together in return for a remix on one of his album originals to be released in 2014. "64 Ways" has a lazy shuffle, a bunch of catchy rhodes chords and few well placed layers of synths that give this track a hint of "Detroit Experiment", wrapped up in an almost poppy house jam.

One of the other vocal tracks is "Thoughts of She", that effortlessly samples the voice of UK soul singer Alice Russel from the track "Pushin' on" by "The Quantic Soul Orchestra". There's also the gorgeous track "Center of Gravity" that has Berlin based, Ghanese-Canadian soul singer Sandra Amarie on vocals. It's particularly this track that reflects the true spirit of Detroit Swindle's music, a mixture of soul and UK garage meets Detroit house slowed down to a sexy groove with some of their trademark pads and stabs.

They pushed themselves to explore different tempos as well, which not only resulted on some slow house burners, but also in 2 hip hop tracks. "For the Love of..." is a homage to the old school sounds of "J. Dilla", "A tribe called Quest" and "The Pharcyde", combining off-beat shuffles, a gritty bass line and a warm cut-up soul sample. "You, Me, Here, Now" is almost a love song, disguised in a s(w)ing-a-long down tempo type of track. It's one of those "one more tune" kinda tunes.

So there's hip hop, there's soulful vocals, but It just wouldn't be a Detroit Swindle album without a few bangers on it. "Huh, What!", "Shotgun", "The Fat Rat" and "He's Just This Guy, You Know?" are all relentless dance floor monsters, pushing the tempo to match old school Chicago and New York house cuts from the late 80's and early 90's.

With these tracks "Boxed Out" has a great combination of gritty percussions, hot vocals and catchy chords and it is exactly this recipe that has become the much-loved trademark of Detroit Swindle's house universe. The album has a little bit of everything in exactly the right dose, making it both a good listen, and an extremely infectious club album.

We are very pleased to have the Lithuanian Space Disco Masters "Downtown Party Network" doing a very special 10" release on Dirt Crew. Mostly known for their brilliant releases on "Best Kept Secret" and "Silence Music" the Vilnius based Saulty and Bradka have proven over the years to be experts in producing haunted Electro and Disco influenced Deep House tracks.

The A-side track "In The Air" is a glorious ecstatic dance floor burner with it's fragile female vocal sample and funky bass line it takes us right back to some of the best early nineties House moments.

The B-side features the darker and more electroide "Call On Me" that could easily be taken from a mid 80's cosmic album. It has this laid back Italo groove and long stretching pads and chords that just put you under a spell. The reverbs and space like bendings in this track are very haunting. The bass is groovy and funky, a real new funk electro track.

Hope you enjoy playing these two jams out as much as we do!

We are very excited to announce our new Dirt Crew sub label „S P I E L" and more so our brand new artist „Clancy" who will do the first release on our new imprint, this also being his Debut EP.

We started the new label to focus even more on different genres in the dance music world than we already did with Dirt Crew Recordings. So you will not only find your Deep House here but also some more genre crossing styles of music in the Indie Dance and Nu-Disco field. Clancy is a young Producer from Manchester now living in London that only just started to break through. He already did a remix for „Little Dragon" that got a lot of praise and is close to reach 100K plays on his Soundcloud page. His music is very uplifting and a great mix of UK House and more Nu-Disco like flavours. Pure „Good Times" on the Dance Floor.

As a very special bonus to this first release we added a remix by Norwegian Disco Master „Prins Thomas" who transformed the original of „What You Do" in a stellar space anthem with his unique „Diskomiks".
