Beautiful Swimmers - O Yea...Music Video!

Beautiful Swimmers - O Yea
Video by Aurora Halal & Ashiq Khonder

Big ups to all of the Philly friends who made it out this past Saturday to see DC's Beautiful Swimmers in action at Kung Fu Necktie. It's always nice to see what a different crew from a different region likes to pack. Lots of weird beard disco, forgotten proto-house relics, TRAXX anthems, and a touch of booty bass. If you were there, you know what I mean.

The real treat for me was hearing their original material, just released to 12" on Max D's label, Future Times. Think deep drum machines chugging along in a stoned discotheque of future's past, drenched in all types of SLEAZE (e.g. reverberated saxophones). In a beautiful dance floor moment, Shawn Ryan turned to me and exclaimed, "Wait...this is one of THEIRS?" and proceeded to storm the booth.

I'm not going to rip the 12" because all you bamas should buy a copy.

I can't wait to hear what else they've got up their sleeves...

the phrase "beard disco" is accurate but still makes me feel awkward and squeamish when i hear it
