Dam Swindle

From deep to disco, tech to soul.


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. From deep to disco, tech to soul, they join the dots between the past and the present with their own sense of storytelling and do so in clubs around the world, as well as in their own studio. House might be the root of the Dam Swindle sound, but it takes nourishment from a much wider world of music. 


It was their early, high impact tunes such as ‘The Wrap Around’ and ‘The Break Up’, that got dancers all over the world in a frenzy. Since then, the pair has constantly evolved and matured and continued to draw on all musical niches. Building bridges between them, their  landmark 2018 album High Life or their ‘Coffee in the Morning EP’ both furthered their take on house music with a real sense of timelessness and class.
