Ante Perry & Shimmer – Body and Soul (feat. Gia Mellish)

Coming off the upcoming Toolroom Records compilation, “Poolside Croatia,” which dropped on August 31, “Body and Soul” by Ante Perry and Shimmer is quite possibly one of those tracks that escalates a DJ’s career into the stratosphere. A minimal house track with a pulsing bassline and very tight – and incredibly tense – wind-ups into cathartic bass drops, “Body and Soul” makes great use of ambience and a back to basics approach that really turns up the heat. This is the kind of track that creeps into the back of your mind; the kind that you hear in a dark club and you try to remember what it sounded like the next day, but you can’t for the life of you figure out what it actually was. This track is a dark horse.

Make sure you get it when it’s released as part of the “Poolside Compilation” on August 31 via Toolroom Records.

The 2 Bears – Get Out

The 2 Bears, also known as Joe Goddard (of Hot Chip) and Raf Rundell (of the now defunct 1965 Records), have established a niche for themselves as champion remix artists over the past few years by tackling countless tracks by artists like Santigold, Death Cab for Cutie, and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. Their newest single, “Get Out,” coming off their album set to debut on Southern Fried Records in the fall, takes their experimental playfulness to new heights while delivering a single that is begging to be played on the best sounding sound system you can find. Starting off as a quiet, atmospheric pad piece, “Get Out” soon ascends into a big beat rhythm followed by a bass line that’s simple, but beautiful in said simplicity. The real game changer is in the last couple of minutes: the song drops into an acid fueled, dubbed out, tech house groove that not just bounces and weaves, but also leaves you blissed out by the song’s eventual choir led finale.

Pre-order their upcoming album ‘The Night is Young’ on iTunes and get ‘Get Out’ as a free download.

Hot Since 82 – Somebody Everybody (feat. Black Box)

UK producer Daley Padley – the infamous Hot Since 82 – is having a massive 2014. He had a remix that reached legendary status (the floor crushing anthem “Bigger Than Prince”), he DJ’d a back to back set this summer with the one and only Pete Tong at BBC Radio One’s party in Ibiza, he opened up his own imprint label (Knee Deep in Sound), and now he’s started up a series of raves called “Taken” that have already gone viral. He also released a new single last week, “Somebody Everybody,” which will no doubt bring the dance scene to its knees in the coming weeks.

Coming off his Knee Deep in Sound imprint, “Somebody Everybody” is a whirlpool of dance music flavor. It has lush synths that envelop the track in a cocoon of warm vibes and a tight percussive stranglehold that makes the track bump and weave. This said, the real kicker here is the haunting vocal sample from Black Box’s deep cut, “Everybody, Everybody,” which churns and churns into an unstoppable feeling of escalated elation.

“Somebody Everybody” is available via Beatport on Knee Deep in Sound.

Happy Labor Day! We hope you’ve got the day off (and even if you don’t this is thoroughly enjoyable). Blisspop resident Steven Faith has posted his opening set from a recent show with Echo & The Bunnymen at the Fillmore in SilverSpring. It’s a seamless mix of classic Brit Pop and modern indie rock that really shows you what a DJ is meant to do. Faith maintains a continuous vibe as every track flows from one into the other effortlessly and takes you on a trip through the foundations of modern indie rock. Take a listen below and enjoy your holiday! (Soundcloud is lame as usual, so the set was only able to be uploaded to MixCrate, but just click through and you’ll be exactly where you want).
