Filip Nikolic and Jeffrey Paradise are good friends who are inspired by California, mezcal, dancing, good food, and friends. 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, and The Magician, and 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.” “Take Me Home,” Poolside’s second song to be released, was the first song on Aeroplane’s In Flight Entertainment compilation. Poolside’s debut albumPacific Standard Time was released in 2012.
Mattie Safer - (Set time: 9:30 PM)

Mattie Safer. You know him as vocalist, writer and bassist for The Rapture, the band that revolutionized the post-punk movement in the august with their critically acclaimed albums Echoes and Pieces of the People We Love. Their 2003 single release "House of Jealous Lovers" was the first release on DFA Records, jumpstarting both the label and the indie-dance movement, allowing the group to play for tens of thousands of fans across 5.

After 10 years with The Rapture Safer was ready to explore a more diverse musical journey. He released his first solo single "Is That Your Girl?" on Ed Banger Records in February 2011 and has followed up with collaborations with Uffie, Beni, Jam Factory and Compuphonic. His upcoming mixtape, aptly titled "Future Gospel Sound" was co-produced by Dances With White Girls and is perfectly tailored to flow right into your Summer Jams Mix. Drawing from his deep musical roots he seamlessly combines aspects of R&B, Soul, Hip Hop, Pop, and Dance into a sound that comes across as both familiar and fresh. Safer's sound may be genre defying, but he knows exactly who he is…and very soon, you will too.
