With their feet firmly positioned on Dutch soil, the heads and hearts of Detroit Swindle are nonetheless rooted deep into the soul of the motor city, and this EP of finely crafted grooves on Jimmy Posters and Huxley's fledgling Saints & Sonnets imprint is as brilliant a reflection of their obsession as you could expect. "The Wrap Around" combines a killer vocal hook with a silky line, but it's the bassline that marks it out, coming in with a thudding bassline that twists itself into all manner of unfiltered goodness at the halfway point. "Pain Tomorrow" meanwhile prefers to let its skipping percussion do the talking with a bumping chord led groove that would put MCDE to shame. The EP is rounded off with a killer remix of the title track from Deleusions of Grandeur's Pattern Select, turning in a sparse reworking which transforms the light original into a throbbing piece of basement house.
