Poolside is the recording project of producer, songwriter and multi- instrumentalist Jeffrey Paradise. In 2011 Poolside set out to produce appropriately chill music for summer soirees, a light but danceable kind of music with sunny vibes and liquid rhythm that Paradise dubbed "Daytime Disco." Since then, Poolside has released four acclaimed albums – Pacific Standard Time (2012), Heat (2017), Low Season (2020) and this year’s Blame It All On Love (2023) – remixed countless high-profile acts such as Billy Idol, Jack Johnson & Milky Chance, DRAMA, Miami Horror, L'impératrice, Purple Disco Machine, Big Wild, Zoe and more. Poolside has also recently collaborated with Todd Edwards, NEIL FRANCES, Brijean, Foster The People and Buscabulla.
Poolside’s fourth studio album 'Blame It All On Love' finds singer, songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist and visionary Jeffrey Paradise leading the shallows and entering the depths of his own creative voice. Its 11 tracks are funky, soulful, laidback and full of hooks that elevate Poolside’s sound to poignant pop heights.
The album’s many collaborators — Vansire, Panama, slenderbodies, MUNYA, Ora The Molecule, Ben Browning, Life On Planets & Mazy — bring both breadth and depth, pushing Poolside’s sound in new directions that stay true to Paradise’s taste and sensibilities.
Onstage, Poolside bring their signature ‘daytime disco’ sound to nnew heights as a formidable 5-piece ensemble comprised of accomplished veteran players who have left indelible marks on indie rock and electronic music over the course of the last two decades.
Poolside has toured performing with artists such as Kacey Musgraves, Earth, Wind & Fire, LCD Soundsystem, and Tycho and appearing at major music festivals including Coachella, Primavera, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands and Corona Capital.
The live band combines the raw power of rock ‘n roll with the nonstop groove of disco and dance music.

The Undercover Dream Lovers
Based in Los Angeles, The Undercover Dream Lovers is the brainchild of Matt Koenig. Immediately recognizable for his groovy bass lines, he produces and mixes all his own songs and writes the majority of them, from time to time inviting a friend into his project for a collaboration. His tracks "Good Luck" and "Come Home" have attracted significant attention to his work –the former hitting 12 million streams on Spotify and charting on Canada & US Viral 50 and the latter hitting 16 million and charting on New Music Friday and US Viral 50. The Undercover Dream Lovers project has also appeared in such TV shows as VICE's Fuck That's Delicious, NBC's Good Girls, and ABC's Whiskey Cavalier.Matt has supported Parcels, Her's, L'impératrice, and Poolside and looks forward to upcoming shows with STRFKR. Originally from Pittsburgh, he has never signed with any label, navigating his career completely as an independent act. Earlier this year, he released his debut full-length album It's All in Your Head, which he recorded and self-produced from his home studio in LA. The album takes his style to exciting new heights that was inspired by his desire to create more upbeat tracks that would energize the live show. He played the Los Angeles based festival, Tropicalia, late last year and (after a postponement due to Covid) is looking forward to a two month tour in fall of 2021. Citing as his influences Tame Impala, Parcels, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Daft Punk, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and The Doors, he sees himself as a bridge between eras, combining themes and techniques from the past with those pointing the way toward our future.
