REV 909 AUG

Who likes to “Get Lucky”? Terrible pun aside, we want to make you a lucky son-of-a-gun and give you free tickets to this month’s REV 909 party! For those of you unfamiliar with REV 909, it’s a party hosted by D.C. dance music legends Will Eastman and Ozker that celebrates the sounds of French electronica and classic indie dance while slaying the house with crowd pleasing drops and grin inducing surprises. Yeah – it’s that kind of party. After countless sold out shows at U Street Music Hall, high demand for a bigger venue, and a need to feed the vibes for more people, this will be the first REV 909 show at the 9:30 Club.

Needless to say, this is the place to be on Friday night. And that’s why we want to give you the chance to be there. All you have to do is the following:

  1. ‘LIKE’ our Facebook page.
  2. Send an e-mail to Blisspop@gmail.com with the subject header ‘Rev 909′ with your name and a clever caption for this dorky photo of Will Eastman:

Everybody likes the opportunity to do something for free, right? Because we love you so much, we’ve got 2 tickets to giveaway to next week’s Django Django and Beat Connection show at the 9:30 Club! For those unfamiliar with the artists, Django Django is an English art-rock/electronica group that has been compared to Hot Chip, Kraftwerk, and Cut Copy. They recently released their sophomore album, Born Under Saturn, which the Alternative Press hailed as “a worthy trip to a spacey dancehall.”

Seattle’s Beat Connection, on the other hand, is an electronic act that has drawn comparison to other contemporaries such as the Knocks and RAC. With indelible of remixes of Odesza and Jungle in recent memory, the group is now pushing forward in new directions seen on their latest single, “Illusion,” as they gravitate towards a fuller, lush vibe.

To win the tickets, ‘LIKE’ our Facebook page and send us a caption for the photo below with your name to blisspop@gmail.com with the subject line ‘Django 9:30.’ The winner will be announced on Tuesday, 7/28. Good luck! Here’s the photo:

Ameer Dyson & Yomimbi – “South Beach”

South Beach

In March, we covered Yomimbi’s track “Ibiza Part II” that featured Ameer Dyson’s vocals. Ameer and Yomimbi have teamed up again for a track they are releasing with Jackin Records, a European artist collective/record label/collective. The track, titled “South Beach,” has all the ingredients of a proper house tune: a bouncy bass line, a catchy melody and vocal hooks, and a beautiful use of percussion and effects. There’s no doubt Yomimbi and Ameer Dyson are a match made in #HouseHeaven. Listen and download “South Beach” for free:
