DETROIT SWINDLE 24:30 - 2:30
UNKLE 2:30 - 4:30

Detroit Swindle was formed in 2011 by Lars Dales and Maarten Smeets. It all started after Lars - who was programming a few nightclubs in Amsterdam - had to fire Maarten for playing too much underground music. They started talking and found out they had a mutual love for Motown, hip-hop and early house music. Not long after, they started making music together and the rest as they say, is history.

When trying to define their ‘success’, it’s hard to pin it down to just one thing. Perhaps it’s their talent to find that typical groove that has been so widely acclaimed. Or maybe it’s their ability to connect musical styles spanning over more than 5 decades (and continents) into their sets and productions in such a way that you’re always curious to hear what comes next. Or could it be because they’re always on the move, searching for that new thing to challenge themselves in their productions and live sets. Whatever it is, it’s keeping them rather busy.

Not surprisingly, staying busy is exactly what they’re doing with their label, Heist Recordings. Maarten and Lars are constantly on the look out for new music and that one promising artist that they feel needs to be heard. Though Heist saw it’s very first EP only back in 2013, it already has become the go-to label for many A-list dj’s.
It has released a wide variety of exciting EP’s by a.o. Fouk, Nebraska, Max Graef, Nachtbraker, Adesse Versions, Frits Wentink, M.ono, Obas Nenor, Andy Hart, Brame & Hamo, and of course Detroit Swindle themselves.
They’re working hard to give Heist that unique edge with the artists they work with, the artwork they put forward and the special projects they have on the label such as the yearly Roundup EP, a tradition where every artist of that year remixes another artist, effectuated by the luck of the draw.

Apart from Heist Recordings, Detroit Swindle have released music on renowned labels like Freerange, Future Classics, Dirt Crew (where they released their well received debut album ‘Boxed Out’), Tsuba, Classic Music Company, Kaoz Theory and many more. This includes notable remixes for Hercules and Love Affair, Chet Faker, Seven Davis Jr. and Romanthony’s track ‘Too Long’ produced by Daft Punk.

The boys are as much enthusiastic record diggers and synth hunters as they are lovers of modern day electronic music. With their position as curators of the Amsterdam house playlist for 22tracks they share their love for house music. This also goes for their own club night they’re hosting with the label at ‘Claire’, the new club of the infamous Disco Dolly crew. Heist label showcases pop up across the globe as well, at some of their favourite spots such as Concrete in Paris or Prince Charles in Berlin.

Detroit Swindle have been playing live shows right from the get go, and have expanded their setup ever since. Currently, they’re touring with an extensive setup of analogue and digital instruments and they’re bringing an additional key player with them to be able to perform their own music, unexpected covers and improvise on the spot.

Phoenix Park Ski resort

3 Ski Resorts near Seoul
Phoenix Park is perhaps one of the more well-known resorts in Korea as it was the host hill for the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics and skiing and snowboarding. Located in Pyeongchang, Gwangwon province, Phoenix boasts with the title of best freestyle hill in Korea.

Even though Korean mountains might be smaller than their European and American counterparts, they are absolutely no less fun. The quality of the snow at Phoneix is some of the best in Korea due to higher snowfall records, so riders can rest assured that it will be quality riding on soft cushy snow, throughout the entire winter season. The Phoenix team did an excellent job keeping the snow in pristine riding condition during the Olympics. Actually 12 out of the 22 slopes are of international standard.

The Park has both a gondola 8 chairlifts that all depart from the base area. Five chairs go up all or part way to the peak which is names Mount Blanc, the available gondola also goes up all the way to the peak. The remaining thee chairs go up to the smaller peak, Bulaemaru, on the side of the mountain.

The new Seoul – Gangneung route can get you there in 90 minutes on the high speed train and then a short 25 minute bus ride from the station to the resort. A train ticket will cost you about 20,000 won or so. Alternatively one can take a bus from Samseong or Jamsil straight to the resort and it takes about 2 hours.
 

Vivaldi Park - DAEMYUNG RESORT

3 Ski Resorts near Seoul
Vivaldi’s state of the art facilities and ease of access makes it understandable why it is the most visited resort in Korea, 8 years in a row! Daemyung Resort Vivaldi Park is located in neighboring Gangwon-do province, right across the border line so do not fret, still only a 60 minute trip. Vivaldi can host up to 20,000 visitors so you know they run a smooth operation.
Vivaldi boasts one of the trendiest resorts in Korea and that makes it quite the hotspot amongst the younger crowds, that and its close proximity to Seoul. Vivaldi is equipped with the biggest resort in the country making it an easy choice destination for many tourists.
As mentioned earlier, Vivaldi is high-tech, it has the first express 8-seater chair lift in Asia and what makes it even better is that is open until 5am. So for those hip night owls who love to shred the night time gnar, you know where to go.
Vivaldi offers 12 slopes with 10 lifts at varying times and prices. So it’s pretty simple to select something that suits your needs. Free shuttle buses that are specifically arranged for tourists go straight to the resort. These buses depart from various locations in Seoul and they also return to the same places they departed from.
Vivaldi offers all varieties of slopes, from beginner to advanced, making it a good destination for groups with mixed levels.
Due to the high volume capacity this place can get packed so it’s better to go on the weekdays or at night. Otherwise be prepared to wait in 30min -1hour lines.
 

Jisan Ski resort

3 Ski Resorts near Seoul
Situated in Icheon, Jisan resort is definitely a top choice amongst the local ski resorts due to its close proximity to Seoul. Just an hour and a half away, Jisan resort is perfect for day trips. So if you’re pressed for time, Jisan will definitely satisfy your snow craving. For those that have the luxury of time the resort offers a multitude of beautiful condos.
Jisan might not be renowned for its natural snow due to its warmer geographical location, but one would hardly notice as the artificial snow and snow grooming at the resort is top notch. Jisan offers 7-8 beginner to intermediate slopes, making it the perfect destination for a family outing regardless of ski proficiency. The ski resort usually gets packed on the weekend so it might be better to go during the weekdays. Advanced riders might consider one of our other resorts as they might find these slopes a bit too easy.
For those who are not so interested in skiing/snowboarding you can always try the snow-sledding which is heaps of fun. If you get tired or hungry, a cafeteria is located at the base of the slopes. Sit outside and enjoy some snacks while taking in the breathtaking scenery.
Free shuttle buses operate from various destinations in order to provide convenient access so don’t worry about renting a car.  How to get there:
Express Bus at Seoul Nambu Express Bus Terminal OR Dongseoul Express Bus Terminal → Icheon IntercityBus Terminal → Local bus No. 12 → Jisan Mart Entrance → Jisan Ski Resort
