Poolhaus: the music comes first for us

Today we are pleased to welcome another guest, Poolhaus!

Poolhaus is a Brooklyn based DJ/producer duo that has been turning quite a few heads over the past year in the studio and on the decks. Recently, they've released tracks with global electronic mainstays Club Sweat, Hau5trap, and Stereohype, and are excited to debut on RIM. Inspired by a number of past and present producers and cutting-edge sounds, they seek to test the boundaries with each release. Their special style of tech house has garnered support from renowned tastemakers including Claptone, Dombresky, CID, and Disciples, and they've had the privilege to work on collaborations and remixes with artists such as Rowetta, Wh0, DJ Susan, and Francis Mercier.

We talked to the talents about their new release on "Street Signs" coming on RIM and other projects! Read more below.
— Hi guys! How are you? Thanks for chating with us! How can you describe "Poolhaus"? What is the story behind a name and
    — Hi! We wanted a name that would stand out/ be recognizable on flyers, etc. In 2017 when we started the project, the music we were making was more commercial-sounding deep house, so we thought that combining "Pool" and "house" would be catchy to people because our tunes evoked summertime vibes. We thought it would be cool to combine the two into a single word and use the German spelling as well. Even though our sound has changed a lot since the early days, we think that the name is timeless.
      — Congratulations on your upcoming release "Street Signs" soon out on RIM! What can you tell about the release?
        — Hell yeah! Super excited for 'Street Signs'. We wanted to write a tune around the iconic speech that Semedo & Curtis Gabriel sampled in their 2016 anthem 'Some People Say', and we thought it would be cool for the track to have an old-school rave feel. Since we started producing tech house, artists like Solardo and Eli Brown have inspired us a lot to experiment with these types of sounds. The combination of the powerful vocal, catchy melody, break beat drums, and acid synths mesh very well we think, and we are so stoked that this track found its home on RIM :)
          What goals do you set for yourself in the upcoming future?
            — We are focused on continuing to build our artist profile and reputaGon through consistent releases on great labels (such as RIM). We would love to eventually tour and play shows in different cites (or countries) in the future a well, but the music comes first for us. We're always working on the cra] and trying to produce the best tunes we can.
              Are there any stand out parties/events you've been to that have impacted your sound and style?
              — Ultra Miami 2019 was a memorable experience for both of us. The house & techno hub at that time was called Resistance Island, and it was isolated from the rest of the festival so we did not leave. There were many incredible sets but hearing Solardo b2b Camelphat changed the game for us. It was our first time hearing gridy underground tech house played on such a big stage, and seeing the response from the crowd led us feeling so inspired to produce music like that.
              What are the top three tracks you are playing at gigs at the moment?
              — a. 'Grush' by Mendo & Danny Serrano has been a set favorite of ours for a couple years, it destroys the dance floor every time.

              b. Our close friends Local Singles have a really cool track coming out on Glasgow Underground called 'Voices'. Definitely check it out - these guys are blowing up.

              c. 'Like An Egyptian' by Vassa is a gem that we have played in a few of our sets this past year and the response has always been wild.
              At last, anything else you'd like to share with our audience?
