Getting Loose with Detroit Swindle
That’s a really big step for us, and we’re super excited about the music that we’ve got lined up for this. It’ll have a few easily recognizable classic Detroit Swindle vibe tracks, a lot of new explorations into the more ambient side of things, and more dreamy melodies and calm tracks.
As DJs and producers, you’ve recently been embracing African music. Besides music, what’s your physical relationship with Africa?
How did it go?
When we started playing, I remember that everyone was chanting along to the basslines of our tracks. That was such a wild night. The next day, we heard there were also some shots fired close to the entrance of the party, so it was wild in many aspects.
Amsterdam has become one of the capitals of dance music. The scene seems super strong and fun.

To what extend does the city inspire you?
The place where we have our studio is filled with cool producers, and that alone makes it such a great environment to hang around, borrow synthesizers, share ideas, etc. The fact that there’s so many DJ’s and producers here that make it or try to make it pushes us to work even harder and stay true to our own distinctive sound.
