DJ POOLBOI – “DON’T BE SO HARD ON YOURSELF”

DJ Poolboi’s name is synonymous with heavily emotional lo-fi house. It was no surprise that his latest video, which we have the pleasure of premiering here, is a deeply felt nostalgic remembrance of an NYC that even two years ago feels like a lifetime away¬† as every aspect of public life has been reconfigured. Luminescent stick figure drawings in each frame remind us that there is a certain unseen magic hiding beneath the most mundane scenes. DJ Poolboi is at peak form here, tying a wistful piano line to deeply felt organic percussion and snippets of processed human voice. It’s a beautiful and painful thing, this nostalgia for time just out of our grasp.
