Coralcola came on board as a resident a few years ago now, and has been holding down opening slots and featured resident night mixes with authority. Here he is laying down two hours of slow-mo, chugging grooves in anticipation of the debut of Antal at Make It New. A night that will not soon be forgotten.

Detroit Swindle LIVE! at #MakeItNew this week


What do you mean “Live?”

We get this question a lot. DJ technologies have come a long way, and DJ sets can be an act of creation in and of itself.

However, a live set takes the parts of the music and breaks all of it down into its machines: synthesizers, drum machines, loopmakers, who knows what variety of cool tools.

See it in action:

Then Detroit Swindle rebuilds it, improvising various parts, changing different things, dubbing vocals and, again who knows what. And this time, they’re bringing a friend: keyboardist Lorenz Rhode. A trio of music makers! To wit:

They’re bringing most of their studio gear overseas, including the additional member Lorenz Rhode from Germany on the keys, and as said this has never been done in the States. Guys will improvise a lot on stage, their live show is always different and up to date as they put it all their latest music.


The end result is a uniquely live aural experience. Like a well-performed DJ set, a one-time-only result of sound science.

And Dutch Dokters Lars Dales and Maarten Smeets are practically authorized surgeons.
