Like a balmy breeze from a world of endless summer, Classixx are back with Faraway Reach, a buoyant follow-up to their 2013 debut -- something to cruise to with the top down, from festival fields to the beach, from the dance floor to the shotgun seat. Faraway Reach casts Classixx's young-but-nostalgic melodies and sublime chords in a more mature, restrained light, albeit no less lively and bright. Establishing themselves as producers of note on their debut LP (Pitchfork called them "great songwriters, too"), Faraway Reach delivers powerfully smooth and soulful jewels that are still decidedly their own -- the Classixx signature is one that can't be traced. Their love of plaintive voices and disco-inspired grooves is as evident as ever, but this time around everything is a bit bolder, the cast is bigger, the melodies distilled into a higher potency -- it's all just as good, but better. The album traverses locales, vocalists and inspirations. It's a fitting movement for the duo, from Venice beach to the mountains of South Africa and everywhere in between -- a Faraway Reach.

Poolside
Poolside are the "Daytime Disco" project of California duo Filip Nikolic and Jeffrey Paradise. Inspired by good wine and good times with good friends, Poolside released their debut album Pacific Standard Time in 2012 to critical acclaim.

Poolside has received praise from media outlets including Pitchfork, Dazed & Confused, Gorilla vs Bear, and NME, and their music has been spun and supported by James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem, techno legend Derrick May, and disco don Todd Terje.

Poolside has toured extensively, with performances at festivals including Coachella, Primavera, and Treasure Island. The group's remixes of Little Dragon, the Rapture, Matthew Dear, Sade, and Miami Horror have garnered the duo much attention, and their mixtapes and Spotify playlists are perfect for pool parties.

Poolside's second album, Heat, was released on June 20th to celebrate Summer Solstice, and the duo is supporting the record with a worldwide tour, including gigs in North and South America, Europe, Australia, and Asia.
