Poolside FM is a digital time machine, created by Dutch interactive designer Niek Dekker, Marty Bell, Aziz Firat and Lewis King. It throws you right back to the 90s, re-creating a vintage Mac OS inspired desktop experience - complete with a perfect summer soundtrack and lo-fi videos to match.
This digital project is the re-launch of an already popular online radio station, owned by the people who created it. A throwback to a simpler time in computing. A happy virtual escape from the harsh reality of today’s Internet.
‘We’ve tried to stitch together as many good-vibes as possible to create the ultimate serotonin-inducing, mood-lifting website possible. A virtual getaway.’— Marty Bell, Poolside FM Founder
Style of 1997, mixed with the technology of today. Incorporating humour and craftsmanship, down to the very last detail.
