laid back

If you were looking for an album to would suit the description ultra-chilled electronic disco-funk that won’t annoy anyone in an office but is equally deftly constructed, then you could do a whole lot worse than Poolside’s Pacific Standard Time album from this summer. “Daytime disco” is what they call it and if that means inoffensive but very pleasant pop music then so be it.

Then there’s this. Taken from last week’s Fall/Winter mixtape, the Poolside edit of Laid back’s 1983 song ‘Fly Away’ knows how to take its time. At 8 minutes, it slows down and makes vertical an already chilled out sunshine soundtrack, pushing the atmosphere and that great beat to the fore of hypnotic.

    Not such a fan of these mixes but further down on their soundcloud page I’d recommend the Night People mixtape:

    I don’t know if I’d agree with the ‘Daytime Disco’ tag, for me it’s closer to Mark Farina’s downtempo Mushroom Jazz series. Aside from Next To You, Why You Wanna, Slow Down, Kiss You Forever and Do You Believe, their PST debut is quite mediocre. I feel the west coast California vibe though.
