DJ's On Disposables | Polo & Pan

by Paulette Ely

There’s a feeling that we get when we sit down to have the first sip of coffee in the morning, or maybe you get it when you hear a loved one laugh. The feeling is a bubbling sensation throughout your body, and it lights up your day with color, excitement and adrenaline. When the Parisian production duo, Polo & Pan, played CRSSD Festival last weekend, that same feeling pulsated within each and every person in the crowd. The vibrancy of their music as well as their performance style is enchanting, and the blissful effects are more instant than espresso.

Paul Armand-Delille and Alexandre Grynszpan are the masterminds behind Polo & Pan, and their dance-inducing drops date back to 2012 when the duo first fused forces. That being said, their individual marks on the European electronic scene go back even further. Now, the two tour worldwide to bring their euphoric energy to every town, and their music warms any crowd despite the weather in the air.

In 2017, Polo & Pan dropped their debut album, “Caravelle,” and since then have jumped from festival to festival including Life Is Beautiful and Coachella leading up to CRSSD. No matter where you are when you see electronic experts however, you are sure to be transported to a retro carouse ornamented with groovy melodies and house beats.

To be in the presence of such prominent figures in the electro-pop production game was beyond a pleasure, and their attention to detail both in person and on stage was staggering. The two not only knew their angles in front of the camera, they knew their company in the crowd, as Alexandre exclaimed, “have a great trip!” to the wide eyes watching them when their set begin.

Polo & Pan are the prize example of just how impactful DJ/ Producers are on the industry, as they evoke emotions from festival goers that I have never seen before. The next time I will see them live is unknown, but until then… I guess my Keurig will have to do.
