Poolside began in early 2011 as the recording project of Los Angeles musicians Filip Nikolic and Jeffrey Paradise. Nikolic was a Danish-born producer and DJ who spent some time as the bass player in Junior Senior before relocating to LA and Paradise lived in San Francisco playing out as a DJ and as the frontman of hardcore band the Calculators before also moving to LA. Duo members Nikolic and Paradise began honing their collaborative creations in a pool house that they converted into a makeshift recording studio, producing sunny tracks of subaquatic indie dance music. The group surfaced first in the form of a YouTube video for the catchy track “Do You Believe?” Poolside were soon gaining local and national attention, with underground DJs spinning their tracks at events and a growing online following. Throughout 2011 they made waves with the sound they were calling “daytime disco” through tracks like a reworking of Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon” as well as original tunes. In 2012 Poolside worked on a remix for longtime disco punks the Rapture and held fans over with a new single and video for a song called “Slow Down” as they prepared to release their debut album. That album, Pacific Standard Time, was released in July of 2012 on their own Day & Night label.

We are excited to announce that we will have the upcoming exclusive on Chicago producer Sev Seveer‘s first official release since 2008. Constant Elevation: Odessa Star, is a 30-minute soundscape in the form of a sound design driven beat tape for the scrambled brain. The release is best described as an audio narrative of 91 year old woman floating through space….Say what?!? It is a composition inspired by Seveer’s Grandmother who dealt with dementia in her later years. Sev connects on the deep frequency of a mind blown channeled through through his SP-404 on this forward thinking journey. Scheduled for a pending release within a week, we wanted to jump the gun and share this this little teaser with you…

Meet Marjorie Light, better known as Gingee. She’s been DJing for over a decade now and has turned the heads of her peers and the ‘higher music council’ with her own brand of bass music for the last few years. She is a diversified young lady who you would think is ready to take on the world, but she’s already been two-steps ahead of all that. Bound to the rhythm for as long as she could remember, Gingee, raised in LA, grew up in a house of music leading her to become a passionate student of self-expression. From playing instruments as a youth, to self-publishing poetry as a teen, promoting a music festival that began in her Mom’s garage and eventually putting out several of her own albums and Eps, Gingee’s evolution as an artist and commitment may be just in time to land her a space amongst some of the great innovators in the future of global bass. She’s a killer producer, an mc and singer, plus a damn good dj, the scratching alone will make you itch!
About the mix…
“…some of my productions mixed with global bass from around the world, including rasterinha, zouk bass, moombahton and kuduro plus I added some scratching and fun transitions.” -Gingee

Secondly, is a brand new travel mix for Sound Colour Vibration‘s podcast, aptly titled “World Travel Mix,” described in Gingee’s own words as “Some of my favorite tracks from all over that I’ve collected through the years, whether found on the streets of Mumbai, blasted in jeep rides through the Himalayas, in music and dance courses I’ve taken, or played for me by my dad when I was growing up. This is music that nourishes my spirit and that I keep going back to.”
