Slow-Mo Disco by the Poolside

Posted in Chill out, downtempo, Nu-Disco, Slow-Mo Disco, We are not a rock band with tags , , , , , , , on July 27, 2011 by Montagano

This is not brand spanking new, but it’s certainly worth a blog; it’s such an amazing downtempo track. Recording at the modest speed of 104bpm – this is sheer sun drenched happiness.

Poolside are a couple of pals from L.A. (surprise surprise) who make ‘daytime disco’ – i.e. slow-mo tunes to lounge around a pool to.

‘Do You Believe’ is out now on Future Classic, with remixes from James Curd, Jacques Renault and Cosmic Kids. Grab yourself a copy here.




Acid Washed

Parisian mystery duo Acid Washed released their debut single ‘General motors, Detroit, America’ a few months back now. It’s a hypnotic, space disco, little number that’s bound to be playing in chill out rooms across the country, as it’s the perfect track to let your heart beat calm down to.

However the video was officially released only recently. A mesmerizing exercise in Op Art for the French electronica outfit  by acclaimed British graphic designer and director Anthony Burrill, with the help of his regular filmmaking collaborator Paul Plowman and Zac Ella. The video has had mixed reviews, a lot of people have said it’s a pretentious piece of shit, which it may well be… But I say whatever, it has pretty colours and eighties shapes, what’s there not too like?

Have a look and listen and see what ya’ll think, also thrown in to the mix is the Gavin Russom (of DFA fame) remix of the flipside track Snake, which also features a dynamic performace from Berlin based vocalist Barbara Panther. Gavin gives us a throbbing 8 minute long latin house/disco remix. Enjoy.
