If you’re ever feeling down on dance music, go to a Beautiful Swimmers gig. Andrew Field-Pickering (AKA Max D) and Ari Goldman have been going back-to-back since the late ’00s, and they’re among the most animated DJs in the game, hammering home the fun and physicality of their selections by dancing and wearing ear-to-ear smiles. They’re also serious record collectors—when they’re not traveling, Goldman and Field-Pickering work in record stores, and their time spent in the bins shows in their sets. Over the years, the duo have used house music as a foundation to explore Baltimore club, jungle, post-punk and other unclassifiable delights. Goldman and Field-Pickering also both run labels. Field-Pickering’s Future Times began as an outlet for the tightknit DC scene, but as his reputation as a DJ and producer has developed, so has the label’s scope, with respected acts like Magic Mountain High, Jack J, Shanti Celeste and Steve Summers all appearing in recent years. Goldman’s label, World Building, only launched last month, but through the excellent Mark Seven single The Fatal Flaw In Disco it’s hit the ground running. “World building” could easily be applied to what Field-Pickering and Goldman have achieved. They seem to operate on the fringes of the dance music circuit, taking an impulsive approach to making, releasing and playing music. On their RA podcast, they turn to bumping UK garage and house, mixing the likes of R.I.P. Productions with new music by Flørist and L.M.Y.E.
