We’re drawing closer and closer to Factory Floor’s DC debut, and we couldn’t be more excited. To help get us in the spirit, Blisspop resident Steven Faith has cooked up a mix of all Factory Floor originals, remixes, one offs, and everything in between. It’s the perfect jumping point if you’re unfamiliar with the group, and if you are, the mix flows seamlessly and makes for a really enjoyable hour. Stream it HERE or after the jump and grab tickets to next Thursday’s show HERE.

German production duo, COEO, are gearing up to release one of our favorite EPs so far this year for Seven Music. The Don’t Need You EP is four tracks of no-frills, vibed out house music. The title track opens the record with a note of bittersweet melancholy played over a 4/4 pattern with softly ebbing pianos and throwback strings. Andy Ash’s take of the track fills out the A-side by reworking it into a late night warehouse stomper. “The Look” is chock full of feel good with a playful piano line and spacey arp taking the lead. “Your Body” closes the record, forming the base with an acid synth line over a hefty lowend. It’s quickly worked into a frenzy with stuttering percussion and the simple repetition of the phrase, “Your Body.” Check it out below and grab the release later this month:
We have an absolutely massive weekend/week coming your way courtesy of the Blisspop Residents. No need to color it as the lineup speaks for itself. Dive in and come support!

One of out favorite producers is back with a new EP coming later this month on Exploited. Compuphonic has steadily worked his way deeper and deeper into our hearts with his unique take on deep house with a slight indie dance edge. The two tracks from the Radio Atlantis EP are a welcome extension of his sound which frequently hosts gorgeous melodics and fine attention to detail. The title track has a breezy sense of positive melancholy coupled with a playful bassline and warm synths. “Walking On The Edge” shares a lot in common with his previous smash, “Sunset” featuring a spoken word vocal played out over a muted deep house groove and jazz keyboard lines. We’re seriously excited for this one! Check out the preview below:
Uk-based production duo, Just Kiddin, just released one of their hottest tracks yet for video channel, Eton Messy. “Thinking About It” is a tasty slice of UK house complete with lush synths, catchy R&B style vocals, and a great, driving bass groove. The track is a nice balance of pop influence with more underground sensibilities, and another great reason why the duo is definitely one to watch in 2014. Take a listen below:
