Poolside began as the recording project of Jeffrey Paradise and Filip Nikolic in a converted Los Angeles backyard pool house in early 2011, producing sunny tracks of subaquatic indie dance music that they coined “Daytime Disco” in this makeshift recording studio. The project quickly gathered steam with overnight online support for early tracks “Do You Believe?” and their now-iconic cover of Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon” as well as spins from DJs like James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem, techno legend Derrick May, and disco don Todd Terje. Poolside has created many albums including their most recent release Low Season in 2020.
Poolside and Space Coyote released a limited drop collaboration of Hybrid Hash Joints to celebrate Low Season and create the ultimate poolside glazed feeling.

Rachel “Messy” Beck was born and raised in San Francisco, California. “Messy” is not just an adjective she uses to describe her process. It’s a lifestyle. It’s about embracing all of the screw-ups, mourning the lost and misplaced, bumps and bruises, and making it into something… kind of pretty. “Messy” is the chaotic scrambling to get her ideas out before she forgets them – turning accidents into intention, gracelessness into beauty. It is the acceptance that there is no right way to create or be.
Space Coyote sponsored Messy's first ever solo gallery show and commissioned the ultimate Space Coyote art piece which was auctioned off at the opening night of the show for charity.
