    Taken from "Backstabber" EP | Nachtbraker | Out 30.11.2015

    A1 - Hump
    A2 - Backstabber
    B1 - Time Is of the Essence
    B2 - Monday Mourning

    Digi Only - Yaaa

    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

    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.

    Taken from "Time Of Descent" EP | Tigerskin | Out 26.10.2015

    A1 - Faint Feat. Grambow
    A2 - Stay
    B1 - Descent
    B2 - This Place Is Empty Without You (Special Vinyl Reissue)

    Digi Only 1 - Hippies
    Digi Only 2 - I Miss Chris

    Release Info:

    Since the early years of our Label Tigerskin has been one of our most prominent artists. An integral part of Dirt Crew, he has over 15 releases on the label, either as solo artist or in collaboration with Till von Sein. He has put out some of his best tracks on the label, as well as his debut album „All Those Goodbyes“ two years ago.

    With his new EP „Alex Krüger“ shows his many talents in dance music and proves he is not a man of musical boundaries, it ranges from Deep and Tech House through to Techno, with influences from all over.

    On the vinyl, ‘Faint feat. Grambow’ is a bright and soulful dance floor gem, the melodic Detroit style house track is ripe with tuned percussion, electrifying drum motifs and a live key jam from feature artist Grambow. The A2, ‘Stay’, is a subtle, classy, vocal deep house cut perfect for the early morning. The flip holds ‘Descent’, which resides in more spacious territory, steady and deep with acid and techno undertones, and our very special vinyl only bonus track, Tigerskin’s biggest hit, ‘This Place Is Empty Without You’. This masterpiece was originally released back in 2012 as a digital offering, but we’ve had so many requests from fans over the years to press it on vinyl that we could not say no!

    On the digital release we have two extra gems, ‘Hippies’, heralding a propelling cinematic lead, supported by a huge bottom end for the dance floor, and ‘I Miss Chris’, a high energy tech house bomb meets classic piano house jam, this track brings the heat in a big way.

    Release Info:

    After last year’s successful ‘Deep Love 10’ compilation Dirt Crew now bring yet another massive collection of exclusive tracks by label residents and new faces. ‘Deep Love 15’ is packed with outstanding new releases that vary from the deep grounds of house to the underground sides of techno and disco.

    Releasing the entire 16 tracks across a five-track EP and bonus 11 track CD (sold as one New Release Information product) the compilation splits and stretches itself across all formats. The five vinyl tracks are all more towards the deep house side. Funk and soul laden grooves with main house heads ‘Brame & Hamo’ and ‘Nachtbraker’ starting off on the A-side, both tracks showing their signature sound written all over. The third track is by label newbies ‘Homework’ from Amsterdam who Dirt Crew know from their great outings on ‘Exploited’ and most recently ‘Let’s Play House’, as well as studio neighbours of ‘Detroit Swindle’ and kind of part of the family already. The B-side is by the UK act ‘Voyeur’ who made a good name for themselves already with their release on Kerri Chandler’s ‘Madhouse’ label. Their track ‘The Long Way Home’ is truly one of the highlights of this compilation, with it’s jazzy and classic sounding house approach. To close off we have the Berlin based Spanish brothers ‘Kyodai’ taking over, with a true journey of a track they go way deep into the house and techno regions, instant goosebumps when you hear this on a big system!

    Over to the CD, the music covers all genres and it was a challenge to fit them all together in one nice package. We start off with a couple of new heads, on the first tracks. ‘Laurence Guy’ teamed up with ‘Harry Wolfman’, both from the UK and both on Dirt Crew HQ’s watch list for quite a while, they make that great mix of funky and jazzy sounds with a hint of disco. Next is the mysterious ‘Soul of Hex’ from Mexico who just recently released their first 12” (one member here is ‘Sebastien Vorhaus’ who just released an EP on Dirt Crew together with ‘Ponty Mython’). We also have ‘Loz Goddard’ among these first few tracks, he will be doing a full EP later this year with ‘Harry Wolfmann’ on Dirt Crew - so a lot of collaborations coming up between all these guys. One thing they all have in common is a very fresh twist to the current house genre.

    ‘Kito Jempere’, ‘Downtown Party Network’ and ‘Waifs & Strays vs PBR Streetgang’ need no introduction. All have made brilliant releases over the last few years and all have one thing in common, a love for disco and deep grooves, ‘Kito’ of course is the jazz man here, his crazy twists and unique sounds make all of his tracks very special. The American side of the Dirt Crew family is also represented by LA based ‘Edit Murphy’ and ‘Rhythm Operator’. Both have a very old schoolish approach to their music and both tracks could well have come from an obscure early 90s Chicago twelve. Having made an excellent album last year on Steffi’s ‘Dolly’ imprint with ‘Will Martin’, Bostonian ‘John Barrera’ closes the CD with a blistering Detroit techno cut. Lastly DC of course had to feature a track by Belfast lads ‘Schmutz’ who released their first EP on Dirt Crew in January. Their unique dark twisting techno sound is just like no other, distorted but always with that warm underground house feeling to it.

    So there we have it. Deep Love 15. 16 brand new and exclusive tracks across three formats, showcasing just where Dirt Crew is in 2015. Keepin’ it underground!

    Taken from "Mila, It's Not Over!" EP | Out 03.08.2015

    Track list:

    A1 - Sebastien Vorhaus & Ponty Mython - Face Down
    A2 - Ponty Mython - Apple Arp
    B1 - Ponty Mython - Mila, It’s Not Over!
    B2 - Ponty Mython - Narcolepsy

    Digi Only - Ponty Mython - Paulette

    Release Info:

    Our latest release ‘Mila, It’s Not Over’ comes from the mysterious Ponty Mython (Alex). With roots in St. Petersburg, he now sends us his latest intricately produced works from his studio in Vilnius, Lithuania. Alex joined the Dirt Crew family last year, adding his excellent artist name and ear for exotic samples to our ‘Deep Love 10’ compilation with his track ‘Movin On’.

    First up on this new release is ‘Face Down’, a cross-continental collaboration with Tijuana based tastemaker Sebastien Vorhaus. Sebastian and Alex recently dropped their ’Lux or Cairo’ EP as a 12” on Quintessentials, and have backed it up with this funked out jam. The remainder of the release has been no doubt meticulously put together by Alex himself. The record is full of surprises, with audible influences from house, italo and disco, it brims with the unusual and unfamiliar, but is held together with its dance floor propensity.

    ‘Apple Arp’ is a joyful excursion, with a bubbling arpeggio, oscillating lead and an irresistible groove. The title track ‘Mila, It’s Not Over’ rolls along with swung live drums and acid touched bass line, before taking an unexpected turn, floating off into an almost cinematic break, where film score woodwinds and strings call out over muted voices. ’Narcolepsy’ hosts breezy flute and psychedelic swells of sound and ’Paulette’ boasts mesmerizing tuned percussion and singing synth lines.

    All in all this record is completely unique and full of life, a bizarre and colourful journey into house music, perfect for the party.

    Taken from "Lamaj's Secret" EP | Out 29.06.2015

    Tracklist:
    A1 Lamaj (Original Mix)
    A2 Lamaj (Andy Hart Remix)
    B1 Four Lights
    B2 Garlic Fist Pump

    We first introduced these strapping young house aficionados from Sligo, Ireland, with their debut EP as a pair, “Street Urchin”, a little over a year ago. Since then the guys have been busy with a massive release on Detroit Swindle’s label Heist, not to mention their unbridled musical passion lead them to launch their own label Splendor & Squalor beginning of this year, kicking things off with a sell out vinyl only pressing of another four track EP of their own imaginings featuring a hot remix from Session Victim.

    We’re pleased to share with you their latest creation, the stunning “Lamaj’s Secret EP”. Now, we’re not sure who Lamaj is exactly, but the mystery, funk and raw sex appeal in these four jams certainly has us wondering.

    First up we meet “Lamaj”, this track drips with delicate melodic samples, jazz tainted drums and bass driven funk galore. We asked our long time friend, Australian Andy Hart, to give it a flip for us on A2. He opened things up, deepened the vibe and brought some bass toms to deliver a final punch. The B-side begins with “Four Lights”, here the guys slow things down a little and remind us of their gift for nostalgia touched soul and groove samples. Finally, “Garlic Fist Pump”, as the name suggests, takes us straight back out to the dance floor, between the dynamic live drums, subtle vocal snips cry to the hip hop Brame & Hamo draw so much inspiration from.

    Welcome to the House of Lamaj, we hope you’ll take off your coat and stay a while.

    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.
