DETROIT SWINDLE ESSENTIAL MIX DEBUT THIS FRIDAY

And they unveil super hot Seven Davis Jr remix!

Amsterdam's Detroit Swindle will make their Radio 1 Essential Mix debut during the latter hours of Pete Tong's Friday night show.

Speaking about the mix, the duo told Radio 1, “We really tried to fit in all the elements that, together, make our sound so particular.

“For us it’s not just about the song, but also very much about telling a story with the mix.”

The duo will also be touching down at Egg LDN on 25th July for the next DJ Mag Sessions party, the London debut of the duo’s criminal heist-themed party The Great Escape.

  

Coincidently, the Dutch duo have also remixed Seven Davis Jr who is also playing a live set at the event. Their redux of 2014's  ‘Friends’ will also get a super upfront play on the show.

Expected to drop later this summer on Luke Solomon’s Classic Music Company, Solomon recently told DJ Mag, “Seven Davis Jr has been one of the most exciting artists to come along in the last couple of years — especially in dance music.

“Something so different, fresh and exciting — the nods to Prince combined with the inspired 4/4 drum programming and ridiculous funk grooves.

“Alongside this I’ve been watching Detroit Swindle rise up through the ranks — they do something that still has a retro/throwback feel, but they add something contemporary with their production skills."

Sev's 'Friends EP' made a massive splash on the label Luke runs alongside Derrick Carter last year, especially due to soul anthem 'One — Live Edit', so to ask the Heist bosses to give it a re-rub was a no brainer, he said.

“For me the match made perfect sense and when it all fell into place and when the results are fantastic," he said of the remix partnership. "That’s greatest reward as an A&R man. Especially when it involves artists that are as passionate about their music as I am.”

Detroit Swindle will play at DJ Mag Sessions on 25th July at Egg LDN alongside Seven Davis Jr's widely hyped live show and Glenn Astro in support.

Seven Davis Jr will release his debut album, 'Universes', via Ninja Tune the day before, on Friday 24th July.
