DJs Andrew Field-Pickering and Ari Goldman, known collectively as Beautiful Swimmers, recently completed their first 12″ record, “Swimmers Groove” b/w “O Yeah”, which will soon be available from local dance Future Times. With its sampled call-and-response vocals, its sequenced synths, and its lake of gated reverb, it’s pretty decadent. Sort of like Brian Eno scoring a Michael Mann film, if that makes any sense.
In the meantime, this music video for “O Yeah” should give you a pretty good idea of the record’s sub-aquatic-kraut-rock vibe.
