South African band and producers-extraordinaire, Goldfish, are back with a remix of “Sugarman” by Rodriguez. The track quickly rocketed to the top of the Hypemachine charts with its blend of soulful folk and slick electronic production, fitting comfortably with tracks like Wankelmut’s remix of Asaf Avidan’s “Reckoning.” It’s an affecting house groove that’s easy to get lost in, and DC’s lucky enough to have Goldfish coming through U Street Music Hall this Sunday 10/26.
Goldfish has been nice enough to offer up a pair of tickets to the show, and they’re all yours. In order to win them, send your name and favorite Goldfish track to firstname.lastname@example.org . We’ll send an email confirmation to the winner Saturday night!
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).
Labor Day weekend has finally made it’s way here, putting the official cap on summer days and beach parties and ushering in Fall in all it’s glory. If you’re looking to get down, our crew has you covered with a pretty massive weekend on the horizon!
And if that isn’t good enough, here’s a mix from resident Caleb L’Etoile to get you in the mood for the weekend!
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
