Lars Dales and Maarten Smeets delivered a 2-hour set mostly filled with tech house, deep house and disco. Using a complete four-deck setup (two turntables and two cd players), you could see those two spinning 12” and playing mp3. This hybrid form of DJing deserves a lot of respect, especially when it comes to manual beatmatching and carrying those heavy crates. Atmosphere-wise, the Public Works’ main room with its minimal VJing and lighting was the perfect environment for such a performance. This eclectic mix managed to keep the crowd packed and dancing until 1:30 am, when they handed the decks to Miami’s Danny Daze.
Did you miss it? You’ll have to wait until October to see Detroit Swindle on the US territory again.
