Tropicool’s mixes are superb, they are mood-fitting and highly sensual. “Indian Solstice” is no different and the vibe he brings with this set is one that resounds with the Fall feeling. A mix of indie, melodic house, shuttered between deep, dark fantasy tracks with french disco to bring you out of your funk. The track listing is on his Facebook page, where you can also download this mix for free! Enjoy!

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.

My man Kiffy is here to set your ears ablaze with an eclectic mix of summer bangers that range from indie dance to housed out hip hop to even some real trap. Philadelphia/Blacksburg (Home of the Hokies!) transplant Chris Luceri, aka Kiffy, is bringing the heat to shows up and down the east coast. His mixes can make your party bump or overtake your mind with some serious bass-eating headphones. This summer mix is on point, incorporating Cashmere Cat, CHVRCHES, Jay Z, Gorgon City, among others! I’ve seen this man play up close and personal and its a true sight to hear, as he always makes the audience get live. Take a listen to this masterful tape and check out some of his other mixes, that vary from season to season.
Honestly might be the best of the entire summer, maybe sweeter since it signifies the final few moments we have of the sun and warmth. Buffalo-based Solidisco are absolute OGs when it comes to hard-hitting nu disco and french house, and this mix is a synopsis of the new and old that influences them and their followers (like me). It drops Modjo’s “Lady,” Kill the Noize’s “Perfect Combination” and Bag Raider’s “Shooting Stars.” This mix is no joke. It doesn’t hurt that Solidisco are one helluva duo who has been dropping bombs for years now, its a must listen!
