Blisspop Mix Series #18: Citizen Select

Posted on March 11 2015 by Blisspop

Listeners beware: the latest mix in our Blisspop Mix Series emphasizes that idea of ‘feel good.’ This is an auditory delivery of intercourse for your earbuds. Mixed by Washington, D.C. nudisco and indie dance purveyors of funk, Citizen Select, the latest mix was put together with the idea of ‘Sunshine’ as its main thematic element. What results is a vibrant, lighthearted, upbeat mix that picks up tempo before going into a bass lined sweet spot that will make you bounce, nod, and wish you were in a sweaty room filled to the brim with attractive people. This mix is essentially summer incarnate. Featuring tracks by the likes of Bit Funk, Moon Boots, Sharam Jey, Gigamesh, and Tippy Toes, this entry in the Blisspop Mix Series is not one to pass up.
