Poolside has received praise from media outlets including Pitchfork, Dazed & Confused, Gorilla vs Bear, and NME and their music has been spun and support ed by James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem, techno legend Derrick May, and disco don Todd Terje.

Poolside has toured extensively, including performances at festivals including Coachella, Primavera, and Treasure Island. The group's remixes of Little Dragon, the Rapture, Sade, and Matthew Dear have garnered the duo much attention, and their mixtapes are backyard BBQ essentials and perfect for pool parties.
