Poolside (2 hour DJ set)

The L.A.-by-way-of-Denmark-and-San Francisco duo of Filip Nikolic and Jeffrey Paradise make music they call "daytime disco," meaning that while they use many of discos well-known tropes like funky basslines, four-on-the-floor rhythms, Latin percussion, and glittery choruses, its a more relaxed and peaceful sound they produce. Their first LP, Pacific Standard Time, totally succeeds at creating a warm and inviting, almost somnambulant, mood - so warm that the band could have called themselves "Sauna" just as easily. Musically they can take you on a journey where Steely Dan is remixed by Larry Levan; T-Connection wakes you up from a disco nap; Donna Summer is drunk on cough syrup, and Neil Young's "Harvest Moon" is gently plucked from the country and gets you slow dancing to a beautiful end-of-the-night jam. Throughout the night this duo can also turn up the heat, "Why You Wanna" has a pumping bassline and strutting beat, "Do You Believe" has a spunky, midtempo electric boogie feel, and "Just Fall in Love" sounds something like the Eagles jamming with Chic. Mostly though, expect a relaxed disco groove with lots of interlocking guitars, bubbling synths, and dusty percussion fills. Then mix that all together into a tropical cocktail that will knock you into a coma after only a few sips.

Vito & Druzzi of the Rapture (DJ set)

Best known for being the drummer and multi-instrumentalist of The Rapture who's international smash “House of Jealous Lovers” changed the sound of dance music in 2002. The New York quartet redefined the tip of the indie iceberg fusing the skronk and chaos of punk with the precision and funk of basement after-party disco beats. The Rapture opened the floodgates for many to float through on the wave of this fresh take on some vintage, party-forward sounds.While it’s easy to pin the influence of Gang of Four, ESG, and Liquid Liquid on many of the followers, The Rapture’s territory of beat mining goes deeper further and wider. The band have shown respect for forbearers as diverse as ‘70s New York disco progenitor Larry Levan, ‘80s Chicago acid house innovator Marshall Jefferson, historic party staples like Happy Mondays, The Gap Band, Bizzare Inc and Incredible Bongo Band, as well as unlikely sources like Sun Ra and Uriah Heep
