We’re very happy to announce another Spiritland By Night party happening next Saturday night by the talented Dutch duo Detroit Swindle at Spiritland Royal Festival Hall, playing until 2am.

Lars Dales & Maarten Smeets are avid record collectors of music of all eras, with a fresh and intrepid approach to selection. Rather than limit themselves to a certain style, the Detroit Swindle sound touches on classic house, obscure disco, African funk, soulful techno or anywhere else the mood takes them.

They have also defined their approach through their own recordings and their label Heist Recordings, releasing music since 2013 from artists including Pépé Bradock, Nachtbraker, Matthew Herbert, Ge-Ology, Byron the Aquarius, Nebraska, Max Graef and many more.

Jarvis Cocker and Alexis Taylor rocked the house in considerable style two weeks ago, and Quantic is coming up in March - once again, we’re hosting artists usually to be found in much bigger spaces, so expect a deeper and riskier set.

Support comes from likeminded party people WOLF Music.

Doors are at 10pm, Tickets are just £10 and there’s only 200 available - come out and party next Saturday night.

See you on the dancefloor x
