The ‘Passion’ EP was Dam Swindle’s venture into deeper sonic territory on Tsuba back in 2013. With the r’n b-goes-deephouse cut ‘Sometimes and the nasty basement banger ‘That freak stuff’, the duo went from their woozy, uplifting songs into a more contemplative direction. Emphasizing this direction even more, the release came with a brilliant remix by the late Soulphiction. Turn to 2023 and we see the duo re-release these classics on their own Heist Recordings imprint. On top of these 3 tracks, a ‘secret’ mix by Soulphiction is added, as well as Dam Swindle’s 707 style remake of ‘Sometimes’, aptly titled ‘Not another sometimes’.
It was in 2011 that Dutch pair Lars Dales and Maarten Smeets quickly broke through in the electronic music scene. Since then they have become known for their widescreen approach to making and playing club-ready grooves.
