There’s a mind-blowing 8 bit version of the Ghostbusters theme, some dirty bass house from Holt Blackheath, charming indie dance from Robotaki, an absolutely killer mix by Bones and more!

The Blisspop Mix Series is back! This time we’re bringing you a sterling mix from one of DC’s brightest, Jackson Ryland. Racking up a steady stream of releases for labels like Holic Trax, Sccucci Manucci, Music Is Love, and more, Ryland has been carving a name for himself with a great blend of deep house and techno. He’s also a member of the Silence In Metropolis crew and a top class DJ to boot. His penchant for analog grooves and warehouse vibes comes through strong on his mix, which is equal parts funky, soulful, and raw. It serves as a perfect intro to get you prepped for an epic Saturday night at U Street Music Hall where Jackson will be sharing a bill with Duke Dumont and local disco duo Man & Woman. Take a listen to the mix below and grab the DL after the jump.
This is a very big week for Bliss. Our little blog and it’s consistently epic partner party, Bliss, are turning 14. To celebrate, head honcho, Will Eastman, is playing a 6 hour set this Saturday at U Street Music Hall. Come out and dance and make new Bliss memories while sharing your favorite old ones. Eastman also debuted the 5th installment of his 4 a.m. Eternal series on DC’s Washington City Paper in support of the event, and you can stream it below. It features some of our favorite house, deep house, indie dance, and techno tracks of the last few months wrapped up in the mystery and enjoyment that only the end of the night can have. All ticket proceeds will also be going to the Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood Foundation, which raises funds to research AHC, a debilitating genetic neurological disorder.

Happy Labor Day! We hope you’ve got the day off (and even if you don’t this is thoroughly enjoyable). Blisspop resident Steven Faith has posted his opening set from a recent show with Echo & The Bunnymen at the Fillmore in SilverSpring. It’s a seamless mix of classic Brit Pop and modern indie rock that really shows you what a DJ is meant to do. Faith maintains a continuous vibe as every track flows from one into the other effortlessly and takes you on a trip through the foundations of modern indie rock. Take a listen below and enjoy your holiday! (Soundcloud is lame as usual, so the set was only able to be uploaded to MixCrate, but just click through and you’ll be exactly where you want).
