Poolside: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Feb 5 2014

If the name "Poolside" doesn't already imply super-chill intentions, the L.A. duo of Jeffrey Paradise and Filip Nikolic have coined the term "daytime disco" to describe their brand of laid-back, bright-and-sunny beat music. Yeah, it's like disco, but for the poolside: positive vibes, icy drinks, and California sunshine undergirded with gentle, four-on-the-floor beats and glassy synthesizers. Compared to night-time disco, the tempos are slower, the beats a little milder, and the songs unfold a little more lazily. S.F. denizens may recognize Paradise from his long-running, hugely successful Blow Up parties; though he's based in L.A. now, Paradise is bringing his current project back to the Bay Area for a one-off Blow Up event this weekend. Poolside will only be DJing, but it should still be an appropriate nighttime engagement for the California winter of endless blue-sky days.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
