Beautiful Swimmers

is a production/DJ duo from Washington D.C. Andrew Field-Pickering (Maxmillion Dunbar) and Ari Goldman are the  flagship crew of the synth-wave Future Times label, and have rapidly gathered a cult following of vinyl obsessives and club hustlers alike with their leftfield boogie collage and spatial balearica.

Which song do you listen to when...
you feel like 1982?
Vainqueur

M: When I feel like going back in time one year before my birth I wanna hear some deep in the womb shit. Probably a Vainqueur 12".

The Who - Eminence Front

A: Must admit I'm more of an '83 guy (year I was born) for all that sleazy boogie funk. 1982 for me is still ripped jeans tunes like «Eminence Front».

you try to stay up for more than 24 hours?
David Bowie - Warszawa

M

A: That will be rough as I have a tendency to fall asleep rather easily. Honestly, comedy albums keep me up the best. David Cross or Katt Williams might do the trick.

you come home from the club?
Art Of Noise - Moments In Love

M: Usually I am not trying to hear shit when I come home from the club. Buuuuut maybe some «Moments In Love»? If I'm driving home in the early AM it's garaunteed to be on the radio around here!

A: You gotta keep it chill. Often absolutely nothing is just fine for me. Maybe the morning news? Hahaha.

you take a bubble bath?
Dolphins Into The Future

M: Any song.

Drexciya - The Quest

A: Gonna have to put on an album cause I'm gonna take a long ass bubble bath. «The Quest» would be perfect (Bubble Metropolis).

you ride a bicycle?
Autechre - Goz Quarter

M: Not the Queen song, though that slays. 

A: Not very good at biking. Definitely gonna just be concentrating hard on my surroundings.

you prepare a candle light dinner?
Don Cherry - Brown Rice

M

The Eagles - Those Shoes

A: U gotta keep it sleazy.

you go to a club?
Wally Badarou - Hi Life

M: I'm trying to either see the music I came to see, which will hopefully be earth-shattering, or something unexpectedly mellow.

Inner City - Good Life

A: I usually like a DJ that plays a wide selection of tunes. Gotta keep it fresh. But nothing is better than hearing «Good Life» when you are partying with your buddies! 

you cook?

M: Jazz is it for cooking food.

Fleetwood Mac - Tango In The Night

A: Fleetwood Mac for sure! Been feeling the «Tango In The Night» LP recently.

you run naked through a cornfield?
Alice Coltrane - A Love Supreme

M: Hmmmmmm. «No Rain», or Alice Coltrane's version of «A Love Supreme».

Blind Melon - No Rain

A: This seems like a very alternative rock moment. «No Rain» would be tight.

you prepare for an important date?
UGK - Diamonds & Wood

M: To prepare for a real important date I'm gonna shower and listen to «Diamonds & Wood».

The Rolling Stones - Start Me Up

A: «Start Me Up» is great for getting psyched!

you destroy a hotel room?
Redman - Bobyahed2dis

M: Not really trying to do that. I guess we would probably destroy the smoke detector though ha! 

Void - Who Are You?

A: For sure!

you want to disturb your neighbours?

M: The most over-the-top Byron Stingley-led house I can find. Or some Bobby O with a male vocal.

Van Halen - Runnin' With The Devil

A

you drive a car late at night?
Mobb Deep - The Infamous
Mobb Deep - Hell On Earth

M: Basically cuz those hi-hats are chunky enough to keep me awake. «My piece bang glass tables.» 

The Cars - Drive

A

you jog?
Actress - Hubble

M

Wally Badarou - Endless Race

A: Can't remember the last time I went jogging. But I imagine «Endless Race» would be perfect.

you are at the hairdresser?
Marvin Gaye - You Sure Love To Ball

M: Yo, I just got Rickrolled at the barbershop today hahaha-no. Let's be serious. 

Crime Mob - Knuck if You Buck

A: For some reason «Knuck If You Buck» comes to mind.

you are love sick?
Seefeel - Imperial

M: Or anything off Quique. Hate that Godley & Creme. HA!

Godley & Creme - Cry

A

you make love?
Arthur Russell - You And Me Both
Cocteau Twins & Harold Budd

M: Playing off the iPhone.

Keith Sweat - How Deep Is Your Love

A: Very hot!!! Giving away my secrets!

you jump out of a plane with a parachute?
Fennesz - Made In Hong Kong

M: Might as well take all senses to capacity on that one.

A: That just sounds totally terrifying. 

you play ping-pong?
Der Zyklus - Formenverwandler

M: Drexciya for sure. Or that Der Zyklus «I'm shapeshifting from place to place/Bending time/Cuving space» cut. Gonna help me control my spin game and vanquish. Detroit shit helps me feel sleek and on point, you know??

Air - Kelly Watch The Stars

A

you sit in a plane?
Newworldaquarium - Pyramid

M: On repeat so I can zoooooone.

Manuel Göttsching - E2-E4

A: Ever since I heard Manuel Gottsching recorded «E2-E4» to listen to on an upcoming flight, I agree it is perfect plane music. But I rarely listen to music when flying. 

you have to spend a night in a spooky hotel?

M: I'm just gonna go ahead and hope Home Alone is on TV or something. 

David Banner - Might Getcha

A: Swimmers once stayed in a very scary place in Amsterdam but I don't recall any music that night. In terms of scary tunes though the screwed and chopped version of David Banner «Might Getcha» is always rather terrifying.

you stay in bed?

M: A million songs via iPhone youtube cuz I'll be bored as shit. 

Ned Doheny - Hard Candy

A: The whole LP!

you sit in the subway?
DJ Screw - June 27th (The part of the freestyle session w/ Big Pokey)

M: RAP RAP RAP and more RAP. Ummmm.

Executive Slacks - The Bus

A: Always think about this one on public transportation.

you surf the internet?
Fat Joe & Big Pun - Twinz 98

M: I'm gonna listen to a bunch of 30 second clips on Rush Hour almost guaranteed, and then probably watch the Lo-Life's documentary trailer, and then from there I'll probably pull up Fat Joe & Big Pun «Twinz 98» and then skip the Fat Joe part in favor of John Beltran or something. YOU SEE?

A: Probably gonna be a bunch of jams on Youtube of deep house records I am checking out on Discogs, haha.

you wake up?
Jon Hassell - Earthquake Island

M: The coffee maker, ha! And anything off «Earthquake Island.»

Indo G & Lil Blunt - Let's Get Fucked Up
The Bay City Rollers - Don't Stop The Music

A: Yesterday it was «Let's Get Fucked Up». Today it was «Don't Stop The Music».

you walk in the rain?
Eddie Kendricks - Date With The Rain

M: Cuz I'm just gonna decide to be cheesy like that. Rain also means that drum-and-bass-press-photo style-parka-and-baseball-hat image pops in my mind, so I get images of «Inner City Life» or something too. Maybe that Zomby «Natalia's Song» to bring shit up to date.
