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.

Blisspop resident Ozker is starting up a new mix series, and there’s plenty of reason to be excited for it. Hands down one of the best and most enjoyable DJs in the district, Ozker’s work is always a treat to experience. This most recent series, is aimed to be a little darker, harder, and to have more attitude than his previous mixes. The result is an hour’s worth of deep grooves ranging from heady and hypnotic to gritty and jackin.
It also serves as the perfect primer to tonight’s party featuring Ozker, Will Eastman, Baronhawk and Caleb L’Etoile. If you’re in DC tonight, head to Velvet Lounge for Blisspop’s Together!
