Blisspop is starting up a new concert series, and the inaugural get down is happening tomorrow at DC’s The Velvet Lounge. If you’re not familiar, you should be as it’s one of our favorite bars in the city with a hugely positive vibe and great drink prices. We’re starting with 4 of our residents, and the night is a guaranteed good time. Will Eastman, Caleb L’Etoile, Baronhawk, and Ozker will be serving up some of the hottest house and indie dance in DC and there’s no cover. BE THERE
Blisspop’s Will Eastman has cooked up the next installment of his epic 4 A.M. Eternal Series, and it’s one of our favorites yet. Keeping with the theme of songs that serves as perfect closing tracks at the end of the night, each track has a vibrant energy and captivating soundscape that weave together to form something endlessly moving and dance worthy. New York’s Let’s Play House is hosting the mix in anticipation of tonight’s show where Eastman will be joining forces with Jacques Renault and Gavin Royce of Walker & Royce at the Bossa Nova Civic Club in New York. If you’re up North, definitely don’t miss out. Find more info HERE and check the track list below:

As you might remember from our very first ‘Blisspop Bonus Tracks’ round-up, the purpose of these is pretty simple: A gathering of all the music that may have slipped through the cracks from the weeks past. In this second round-up, we’ve got a bunch of cool stuff for you to discover and play, and hopefully download and take with you to soundtrack whatever it is you’re doing. Highlights of this one include the lead single “Give Up” from San Francisco based duo BLAUS’s debut EP, an epic debut single from a BLEITCH called “This Is Our Youth”, as well as one hell of a remix from Axmod that will just take you away. Enjoy everything below!
Anyone who actively uses SoundCloud knows that there is simply too much good music being produced and released every single day to be able to catch it all. And if you’re like me and follow over 1,000 different great artists, forget about it. And don’t even get me started on that “Repost” button…
The purpose of these ‘Blisspop Bonus Tracks’ round-ups is pretty simple: A gathering of all the music that may have slipped through the cracks.
In this first round-up, we’ve got a lot of different kinds of sounds to offer. Highlights include an awesome new one from Finnish duo TJH87 featuring Gamble & Burke, an airy electronic EP from Distant Cousin, and a magnificent number from Sol Rising off his new album ‘Mystical Awakening’. There’s much more goodness than that of course as you’ll find… Enjoy everything below!
What an awesome way to kick off a Friday. Will Eastman has teamed up with Blisspop resident, Ozker, and producer extraordinaire, Enea, for a deep and dirty monster of a house track called “Falling In Dub”. The track centers around a classic house vocal and builds into a trippy, almost dreamlike, field of scattered percussions anchored by a winding sub bass. The track is being hosted over at the Discobelle Soundcloud, but you can grab the free DL from the Blisspop fan page.
And while we’re on the subject, make sure not to miss Will Eastman this Saturday, headlining Bliss at U Street Music Hall with local favorite Keenan Orr. Great times guaranteed (as well as a chance to grab a pair of limited edition U Hall shades)!!!
