Irish house heavyweights, Bicep, are gearing up to drop their next single “Circles” for Will Saul’s AUS label. “Circles” is a throwback house track with a late night warehouse vibe. It’s built around a bassline that opens and contracts, while the pounding kick and 16th note hi hats clatter on. It’s a heavy track that doesn’t mess around and manages to find a nice medium between house grooves and a raw techno feel. Take a listen:
Walker & Royce are back with a new original entitled “Doctor Saarloos,” which they just dropped today as part of the Pets Records compilation, Friends Will Carry You Home III. The track is a dark and atmospheric tech house groover with a muscular bass line, hypnotic synth line, and industrial feeling percussion. It feels like a well oiled machine guaranteed to get the deepest and darkest floors moving. The compilation is out on May 12, featuring some of the heaviest hitters in the game, among them KiNK, Danny Daze, and label heads Catz’n Dogz.
We’re lucky enough to have a pair of tickets to give away to their show tis Friday at U Street Music Hall as well, so make sure to like us on Facebook and send your name to email@example.com. As a bonus check out Walker & Royce’s recent remix of Mia Dora’s “Jezebel”
Imagine being up for three straight days lost in Paris and the speed just won’t wear off. You’re falling deep. Here’s your soundtrack. The 100th release on the SCI+TEC label, Dubfire’s remix of the.art.of.FY’s “Come” features sultry matte black finished vocals by Asia Argento. Her muddled and echoed enunciations contribute to the hallucinatory dreamscape. The production is accented with an array of disorienting and finely designed sounds. Much like an ivory tower electroacoustic collage, the cut is a somatic listen. A snaking liquid bass line and playful panning of percussion anchor the rhythm. There’s a fairly consistent dynamic throughout the track. Overall, this is a great mid-set plateau preceding a ramp up.
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.
PS. Don’t forget to like our Facebook and send your name to firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to win tickets!
Car Crash Set head, Cosby, is back with a recently dropped original track called “Warehouse Track.” The song is a driving analog work out featuring muted chords and a rich web of percussion pounded into submission by the driving kick. True to its name, the track has a distinct late-night warehouse feel and a focus on simplicity and getting lost in the groove. Take a listen below, and if you’re in Seattle in the next few weeks, make sure to go see Cosby at Kremwerk on April 24!
