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.

Blisspop favorite, Lane 8, just dropped a tasty new remix of Josh Record’s “Pictures In The Dark.” He manages to combine a pretty and almost-progressive house feel with the light-hearted breeziness of an indie dance track. The song revolves around a piano line that’s coupled with a nice low end counterpart and airy synths to fill all the other spaces. The sparseness of the vocals makes for a nice chorus that adds an instantly memorable hook to the track. Take a listen below and come see Lane 8 on April 30th at U Street Music Hall:
Dany Kole is a new producer coming our way from Moscow. He makes sexy retro tinged nu disco tracks with a tendency for big, sexy bass lines and tropical vibes. About a month ago, Kole released his Pictures EP and recently just dropped a nice remix of Goldroom’s “Embrace.” Take a listen below and grab the tracks for free while you’re at it!
Alex Metric already had us in eager anticipation of his upcoming EP with Oliver when he dropped the title track, “Hope,” but with the release of his second single, “Galaxy,” he’s quickly become our top artist to watch. Both tracks are absolutely massive and irresistible, seamlessly blending influences from the house and disco spheres with an energy that will actively infect dance music fans of all persuasions. “Galaxy” leans much more towards the disco side of things, leading with a funky piano line and disco bass groove and throwing in space age synths and Moroder-esque vocoding. It’s a blast and hits extra hard when Oliver’s unbelievably pristine production gets thrown into the mix. The only negative is that the tracks aren’t available now.
