Blisspop head and creator, Will Eastman, is gearing up for a monthly mix series called the Bliss Tapes. It will serve as the perfect primer to the monthly Bliss parties at U Street Music Hall. He’s just dropped the first installment of this new series, and it’s the perfect way to start the week (as well as a great reason to get super excited for this Saturday’s Bliss featuring MK)!! So sit down and chill out with an hour’s worth of tracks ranging from house to disco and techno, and while you’re at it, grab your tickets HERE before they run out!
Lukas Lyrestam’s All I Think About EP is finally out, and with it, Monitor 66’s excellent remix of the title track. Monitor 66 turns the track into a low key house number with breezy summer vibe, mellow deep house bass groove, and airy atmospherics. It’s doesn’t stray too far from the original, but it cools it down very nicely and smoothes out the disco vibe. Grab it now on Stockholm’s Oh! Records:
LA based duo, De Lux, just released their debut album, Voyage, on Innovative Leisure, which gives us a great excuse to write about lead single “Better At Making Time” again. De Lux blur the lines of what we’ve come to expect from indie dance music sounding like a mix of tropical indie dance with a healthy helping of DFA thrown in. It’s somewhere along the lines of what it would sound like if Yacht and Classixx teamed up. Better At Making Time” is nerdy, dreamy, and super groovy leading with a instantly addicting disco groove, sun drenched synths, and post-punk feeling vocals. It’s a ton of fun and a great introduction to the album. Check out the video below:
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.
