DC producer on the rise, Jackson Ryland, throws out a new track for Broke City’s summer compilation. “Keep Here Close To You” is a nice deep house cut, leading with dreamy synths over a driving kick and hat combo. A lot of Ryland’s tracks have a raw warehouse feel to them, as does this track, but the late nights and mechanical percussion are offset by a really warm soundscape that makes this one of his most enjoyable tracks yet. Take a listen below and grab the whole compilation for free while you’re at it:
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:

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)!!!
Happy Friday! Here’s the roundup of how to spend your weekend right!
