dj poolboi is the moniker of Austin Texas’ native Adam Ansley now based in Berlin Germany. In 2017 Ansley started quietly releasing lo-fi house music under the moniker as a side project. An upload of his track “we can be happy" on the popular EELF Youtube channel began to pick up viral traction and attention. Channeling his own struggles Ansley crafted a unique form of electronic music creating emotional melodic house and instrumental songs mixing elation and nostalgia with melancholy.
Residing in the same vein of underground house as Ross From Friends and Baltra while building on the experimental dance music of trailblazers such as Radiohead, Four Tet, Caribou and Jamie XX his music found its own niche taking flight online.
With a strong visual presence from his many music videos, poolboi has quickly amassed almost 100k subscribers on Youtube. With over 70 million streams to date the artist began landing coveted opening gigs across North America.
The artists debut LP “it’s good to hear your voice” came out in March of 2020. Connecting with audiences for its calming aesthetic during the intense global panic at the start of pandemic the album came out on Berlin based label Majestic Casual. An official remix for Moby followed and subsequently 3 EPs for the trendsetting underground house focused UK label Shall Not Fade.
The artist released three lead up singles from his sophomore album. Showcasing a growth in sound working with featured artists from around the globe exploring indie electronic crossover territory with Canadian bedroom pop artist FLOOR CRY on “motions”, South Korea’s Su Lee on “i don’t really mind” and Zambian traditional folk singer Theresa Ng'ambi on "malo okoma". The artist then released his sophomore LP titled “stay just a little while longer” on March 18th 2022 with an exciting international array of collaborators and features. This was followed by the release of a deluxe version of the Album later in August 2022 including new remixes and Instrumentals.

“there's a rising star within the lo-fi house movement making waves across the internet. He goes by the name dj poolboi and something that's quite paradoxical is the somewhat tongue-in-cheek name, compared to the depth and the emotion conveyed within his craft.” - Stereofox
Clay Orange has been crafting his unique sound for his whole adult life. As a busking musician living a transient life moving all across Canada working odd jobs, performing small gigs in run down bars, living hand to mouth and taking in this Northern continent in all of its extremes from the road.
He's putting a fresh distilled sound to the table; blending new age alt country Appalachian folk, psych, indie and bluegrass sound reminiscent of the genre’s early pioneers and legends with an array of countless other rich influences that seep through the imperfect cracks of the songs.
Unbelievably Spectacular are excited to announce this brand new alt country / indie / folk artist on the companies label and management roster. (dj poolboi, Yung Heazy, Peach Pit)
