About Poolside

Rising Los Angeles’ summertime mood enhancers Poolside will bring their intoxicating sounds to The Button Factory on Friday June 7th for their debut Irish show. On their 2012 album Pacific Standard Time, Poolside released a unique blend of funky nu disco, merging retro synths with contemporary sensibilities in a fusion that is best described as “daytime disco.” It's a good description for the relaxed dance grooves of songs such ‘Slow Down,’ ‘Do You Believe?’ and the ultra-chill cover of Neil Young's ‘Harvest Moon.’
Filip Nikolic and Jeffrey Paradise are good friends who are inspired by California, mezcal, dancing, good food and friends. The two met in 2004 and collaborated shortly afterward, doing studio work together in Los Angeles in 2005. After working on a number of other projects, they released their debut single. Filip is a Danish producer now living in LA who plays bass in Ima Robot; Jeffrey throws the infamous Blow Up party in San Francisco and used to be in the hardwave band The Calculators with Luke and Vito from The Rapture.
Poolside’s debut single “Do You Believe?” was charted by Todd Terje, Dimitri From Paris & The Magician to name but a few. Dazed & Confused praised the song for its “pop-tinged disco, brimming with optimistic vocals and retro acid synths,” while NME lauded its “supremely casual decadence.” The duo’s, relaxing yet eclectic blend of daytime disco is gaining them notoriety across all spectrums of the music world.
