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!
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!
