Ari Goldman and Andrew Field-Pickering, aka Beautiful Swimmers (photo by Cooper Saver).
We love Beautiful Swimmers, because they spend their lives with records, crate-digging by day, sharing them at night. They actually WORK for record stores, Ari helping at Earcave and Andrew at Joe's Record Paradise.
Because Andrew runs the coolest dance music label in DC, Future Times, which states "Things will be better in future times" ... and, yes, they will!
Because Ari rocked Le Bain big time last year and, well, it was just one half of the gang.
Because they know how to make us lose control.
Because they come show NYC some love before they rock European festivals this summer, including Sonar in Barcelona, and Love International and Dekmantel Selectors in Croatia.
Because "if you're ever feeling down on dance music, go to a Beautiful Swimmers gig." (Resident Advisor)
On Friday, February 17th, Le Bain presents The Level Party
featuring Beautiful Swimmers and Nina and Andrew Devlin
