    Release Info:

    The man that represents the deeper side of Amsterdam house is back on Dirt Crew. His last outing on Detroit Swindle’s “Heist Recordings”, the “Le Troubadour EP” was another fine example of that laid back funky deep house only Nachtbraker can squeeze out.

    Settling into the groove immediately is ‘Hump’, bouncing chords and a warbling Rhodes lead into an irresistible bass line. The title track, ‘Backstabber’ hits right in the hips, a chugging feel good work out for the dance floor. The flip remains true to the flavor of this whole EP, offering up a massive speaker rattling bottom end and funk flavored keys on ’Time Is Of The Essence’, while ’Monday Mourning’ steps up with expertly cut disco samples, an effervescent excursion with a jazzy lead and a touch of vocoder for good measure. The release is rounded out with digi only offering ‘Yaaa’, a sub driven deep house work out, boasting swelling loops and hypnotic percussion.

    Nachtbraker’s sharp sense of harmony and knack for vibe is ever present throughout this whole release, he has truly fine tuned his sound to a perfect balance of unbounded energy and stylish musicianship. We are happy to welcome him back on Dirt Crew with this classy release. Show less

    Taken from "Looking For Mushrooms" EP | Out 27.05.2016

    A1 – Looking for Mushrooms ft. Das Eb
    A2 – Tsukiji
    B1 – Octocat
    B2 – Red Fox

    Release Info:
    Our latest “Looking for Mushrooms” EP comes to us from a collaboration between long time Dirt Crew resident Tigerskin and gifted jazz pianist and composer Grambow. We first heard from Grambow when his fluid key stylings featured on Tigerskin’s “Faint” in 2015.

    The title track is a suspenseful and moody journey, lead by live double bass from feature artist “Das Eb”. Building in intensity with Tigerskin’s warm production and steady percussive instrumentation until Grambow’s live lead on a gritty synth growls in over the top. A true modern electronic classic as far as we are concernred.

    “Tsukiji” is a playful deep house groover. Balmy tuned percussion and shaken highs roll along under the light hearted piano which cruises along throughout the whole tropically touched endeavour. This track has “Party” written all over it!

    “Octocat” is a tougher italo disco tainted work out, tightly programmed live and analogue percussive elements push along, while wailing keys lick over a tenacious grunting bass. You can really taste and feel the long studio sessions the guys had to compose this great track. It is so much more than generic dance music.

    “Red Fox” is a divine culmination of the pair’s compositional prowess and dance music knowhow. A cinematic and spirited house track that glides and glistens via delicate piano, plucky percussive riffs, bright strings and woodwinds.

    We are very honoured to release this outstanding musical release by Tigerskin and Grambow.

    Taken from “For Kid Caprice” EP | BAL 5000 | Out 14.03.2016

    A1 – For Kid Caprice
    A2 – Dub Version
    B1 – Farewell My Lovely
    B2 – Wake Up! It’s Monday!
    Digi Only - Cop

    Release Info:

    Our fresh outing ‘For Kid Caprice’ EP sees another new face join the Dirt Crew/ SPIEL family. Our latest artist discovery is BAL 5000 out of Budapest, Hungary. Coming from a diverse genre background, his sound ranges from disco to techno, tastefully touched with indie and Balearic.

    The title track, ’For Kid Caprice’ heralds a soulful bass line, easy house stabs, light hearted keys, gently swung percussion and sparkling disco licks, this one’s a soundtrack for traversing the cosmos or blissfully swaying on a dance floor. ‘Dub Version’ steps the energy up a notch. With its growling lead and steady lathered groove this one is wide and warm.

    On the B-side, ‘Farewell My Lovely’ is melancholic yet uplifting, eerie synths sing over positive key hits and its lithe melodic lines playfully interact with the rolling bass giving this one a live synth-pop feel. ‘Wake Up! Its Monday!’ is bouncing and joyous with a chunky bass at it’s core. A queasy lead wraps around the central ideas while rising arpeggios elevate the mood. Finally, as digital only track, ‘Cop’ is a pumping straight forward house jam brightened with classic disco elements. Boasting a self assured bass and gritty rumbling analogue synths, this one is right at home under the lights.

    Taken from "The Sunday Club" EP | Felix Leifur | Out 23.05.2016

    A1 – Berg Toppur
    A2 – Giving
    B1 – The Sunday Club
    B2 – Berg Toppur (Hidden Spheres „Rocky Top“ Remix)
    Digi Only – Wait

    Release Info:

    Introducing Felix Leifur, Dirt Crew’s latest discovery, an all new, raw and savvy talent from Reykjavík, Iceland. Reykjavík has a population of just over 120,000, so the disco, hip hop and soul sampling, house music community that Felix rolls with is pretty tight knit, giving him a unique and inspired perspective on the sound. Remixing is friend of the label, Manchester’s Hidden Spheres. After breaking through on our ‘Deep Love 10’ compilation, he went on to drop his ‘Waiting’ EP last summer on ‘Distant Hawaii’ (the dreamy offshoot of ‘Lobster Theremin’).

    On the A, ‘Berg Toppur’, is a dance floor workout, a sublime balance of shimmering rhodes and vibrant arps with slamming organic percussion. ‘Giving’ is a spirited and warbling cut, crooning vocals and gritty horn blasts punctuate it’s steady groove and loose live clap. This one’s got open air written all over it.

    On the B-side, ‘The Sunday Club’ is a eclectic and somewhat eccentric jam, samples from across decades, weave together to create something altogether new. Next up, Hidden Spheres’ “Rocky Top” remix of ‘Berg Toppur’ eases in with a casual vibe, steamy drums, and a no-nonsense bass line set the pace, while the arps and elated vocals from the original sweep and soar, building to a feverish peak of sun-scorched bliss. Finally, ’Wait’ sets the mood with a dusty jazz piano refrain and a strutting groove, before bringing the playful yet punchy trip home with a solid head-nodding bass line.

    Felix Leifur’s diverse ear and distinct style gives ‘The Sunday Club’ EP the perfect blend of breezy summertime spirit and serious night club heat.

    A1 – Conkers
    A2 – Do The Right Thing
    B1 – Do The Right Thing (Nachtbraker Remix)
    B2 – New Attitude
    Digi Only – Conkers (Nachtbraker Remix)

    Release Info:
    We are proud to announce our first ever collab release with another label and above all, from one of our all time fave producers out there, “The Revenge”. His Label „Roar Groove“ has become a household name for excellent deep dance floor excursions into dubbed out and disco fuelled house music and is the perfect fit for our vision of dance music.

    Making up “Roar Groove meets Dirt Crew Recordings” you’ll find three originals from The Revenge himself, plus two remixes from our resident producer Nachtbraker.
    We get right into it on the A1 with a rolling disco workout on “Conkers”. This track lifts and intensifies into a straight up dance floor destroyer. The perfect balance of elements, tantalizing synth licks, an oscillating bass line and a vocal that dares you not to get up.

    Next, “Do The Right Thing” explores the aforementioned quintessential dub disco territory, slipping and sliding, pulsing keys and glistening melodies sing to rum infused coconuts and salty sunsets. Nachtbraker flips the same jam on the B1 giving it his signature deep house vigor, while adding some new jazz elements, highlighting the undeniable underlying funk of the original.

    “New Attitude” reps that proper “Revenge” sound, this track resides in the realm of the indescribable, we’re not sure if techno is quite the word for it, but a deep and rhythmically pulsing exploration through gritty soundscapes bringing some , always welcome, disco lasers along for the ride.

    Finally, on our digi only special, Nachtbraker slows things down a little reworking “Conkers”. He’s swung the vibe, infused a little more funk, and once again taught us all a lesson on how to write a bass line you can get your body behind.

    On these 3 originals “The Revenge” proves to be on top of the game, and adding two excellent Nachtbraker remixes to the release, things can’t get any better really ... we are more than thrilled to put out this special product on beautifully designed wax. The artwork is courtesy of „The Revenge“ as well.

    Taken from "Cookies" EP | Good Guy Mikesh | Out 14.03.2016

    A1 – Whim
    A2 – Why Not
    B1 – Cookie
    B2 – Corone

    Release Info:

    Our little Dirt Crew sub label Spiel started out in late 2013 with three excellent releases, the first two by „Clancy“ featuring remixes by “Urulu” and “Prins Thomas” followed by a stellar EP from „Mercury“. After a hiatus SPIEL is back for 2016. Renewed and inspired we have a bunch of both fresh faced and established artists on board packing quality releases for the year. With sounds spanning from Indie Dance and Electronica to Disco and spaced out Balearic jams, we’re proud to present you the first of our outings for 2016.

    First up is close friend and rock solid producer „Good Guy Mikesh“. Out of Leipzig, Germany, he’s the guy with the perfect pitch, forward thinking ideas, an impressive discography of 12”s to his name, and a huge range of influences from funk and soul, to 80’s new wave electro and back again. He’s come to the table with four tracks we’ve been
    busting to share with you.

    ‘Whim’ is the steady builder. Spacious and very much alive with sliding leads and layers of analogue synths that sparkle, it’s melancholic bliss, it’s a deep breath inducing, dance floor lifting, thought provoking piece of beauty. ’Why Not’ is something deeper, the bass slips and slides dancing with the top line, while a palette of plucked strings, tuned percussion and Mikesh’s signature synth soundscapes reach into the distance as the track continues to roll.

    On the B side, ’Cookie’ is joyful, its playful keys and poolside energies toast to warm weather and good times. Bouncing arpeggios lead the charge in the break, rising before giving way to euphoric synthetic strings which lead us back into the elated refrain. ‘Corone’ hints towards Mikesh’s disco history, boasting a burly bass and a funk all of its own, this indie dance shaker’s got a solid groove and vibe to spare.

    A listening pleasure and a dance floor treat, Mikesh’s far reaching and assured musical vision is inescapable on this record. The perfect welcome back for SPIEL.

    A – Go Go Go
    B – We Go Home

    Release Info:

    It’s a great pleasure to welcome back Waze & Odyssey to the label, since their first „Please don’t Dance“ EP on Dirt Crew wich was released in early 2013 and that featured an excellent „Detroit Swindle“ remix botht duo’s have had a massive rise and impact on the underground House scene worldwide. Waze & Odyssey have also had killer releases on their own imprint „W&O Street tracks“ and with their latest „On the Downlow“ single they stormed the dancefloors and major radio playlists.

    Waze & Odyssey is best know for their straight up bangin’ House cutz and with these two tracks you get exactly that! „Go Go Go“ is a filterred House banger that takes us back to the early Chicago and French House productions from the mid 90’s.

    On the other side of this fine 10“ the deeper and more electrofied „We Go Home“ delivers some nasty breakdowns and with it’s manic pitched and ascending lead sound it should shake and stir your brain to get your feet moving for sure.

    Pure dance floor action with these two new Waze & Odyssey tracks!

    A1 – Uncle Buck
    A2 – Problem Child
    B1 – Uncle Buck (Brame & Hamo Remix)
    B2 – Neck of the Woods
    Digi Only - Sundays

    Release Info:
    Always on the scout for the freshest talent, Dirt Crew Recordings breaks into 2016 bringing together a couple of our more recent discoveries, Loz Goddard & Harry Wolfman for their all new ’Square Lane’ EP. Relative newcomer, from Manchester and London respectively, the pair in fact debuted on our label in 2015, on independent tracks ‘The Schrew’ from Harry as a collaboration with Laurence Guy, and Loz’s solo jam ‘That Same Thing’.

    Straight up vibes on the groove stricken ‘Uncle Buck’, a no questions asked dance floor weapon and a testament to Loz & Harry’s ability to bring together the finest samples, synths, live percussive elements and a whole lot of soul. ’Problem Child’, gets a bit sleazier, vocal cuts and swirling keys ease us into a broken beat throw down in the break before thrusting us back to the mercy of the straight up four to the floor swing.
    On the flip resident Dirt Crew Recordings producers and all round top blokes Brame & Hamo came to the table with a funked out version of ’Uncle Buck’, enlisting Brame’s brother to jam out the smooth stepping live bass for the remix.

    Rounding out the pressing ’Neck of the Woods’ has a blissed out melodic quality, coasting along with a sunny energy and and just the right amount of cowbell, while the digital only offering, ‘Sundays’ is soulful and shaking in the deepest sense, those bass licks and key riffs definitely give us the feel of this very special day of the week.

    Uniting on this EP Loz Goddard & Harry Wolfman are a sign of things to come in for Dirt Crew Recordings. We have a lot of huge plans in store for the year ahead already and look forward to a massive 2016 filled with music.

    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.
