Poolside are the daytime disco project of California duo Filip Nikolic and Jeffrey Paradise. Inspired by mezcal, good food, and good friends, Poolside's debut album Pacific Standard Time was released in 2012 to critical acclaim.
Poolside has received praise from media outlets including Pitchfork, Dazed & Confused, Gorilla vs Bear, and NME, and their music has been spun and supported by James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem, techno legend Derrick Ma, and disco don Todd Terj.
Poolside has toured extensively, with performances at festivals including Coachella, Primavera, and Treasure Island. The group's remixes of Little Dragon, the Rapture, Sade, and Matthew Dear have garnered the duo much attention, and their mix tapes are backyard BBQ essentials and perfect for pool parties.
Poolside's new single "And The Sea" was released in the summer of 2016, and their new album will be released in 2017.
Dam-Funk (DJ set)
One-man band, producer, and DJ Damon Riddick, known as self-termed "modern funk" artist Dâm-Funk ("Dâm" is pronounced "Dame") grew up an only child in Pasadena, California and was infatuated with a range of music throughout his childhood, including heavy progressive rock, synth pop, and funk. He took to synthesizers above all other instruments and laid down his first home-made tracks during high school. Shortly after graduation, Riddick became a familiar face in Los Angeles recording studios, first with Double Action Theatre, a New Jack Swing act guided by maverick producer Leon Sylvers III (the Sylvers, Solar Records). For the bulk of the next ten years, Riddick's session gigs were mostly on rap records, including AllFrumTha i's self-titled album, Master P's I Got the Hook Up, and MC Eiht's Tha8t'z Gangsta.
