Dam Swindle announces ‘Heist Classics Vol. 01’, the first of four special edition releases celebrating 10 years of Heist Recordings

Founded in 2013, Heist Recordings has quickly become a go-to House label, giving rise to a vibrant scene of groove aficionados. Now in the label’s 10th year, Dam Swindle reflect on the great tracks that have come out over the years with four limited edition compilations.

On this first compilation, the duo starts with the track that helped the label burst onto the scene: their instant classic ‘The break up’. With its vintage vocals, Rhodes chops and instantly recognisable bell loop, it’s easy to understand why so many people are still in love with this track. Following is Scan 7’s 2020 track ‘The Best is yet to come’ from Heist’s 50th release, an amazing EP full of Midwest electronic funk.

On the flip, we’ve got Dutch duo Fouk with their first hit on the label ‘Kill Frenzy’ before the release ends with two catchy tracks by Demuir and Adryiano. Demuir’s vocal cut ‘Werq. Feel. Gruv. Vogue’. is one of the highlights in his catalogue and a showcase of the producer’s knack for sampling and writing a house groove. Adryiano’s ‘Me and you and her’ is a perfect ending to the compilation, showing that great house music can be as simple as repeating something over and over and over until that groove is all you hear.
