Yes it’s that time of the month!! July’s rendition of the The Magician’s “Magic Tape” series is no joke, and I have no shame in accepting that I’ve listened to this mix 3 or 4 times since its release. Once again, this poetic genius of deep housiness pulls a flawless 54 minutes and 45 seconds of utter bliss. The usual bangers with mixed in unknown fire, seamless transitions and builds of Darwinian design make this one of the best I’ve heard. Also, no mixtape for August so this will have to hold over until September!

Nothing really makes my day like new Sammy Bananas. The New York-based DJ and producer has just dropped a new mix entitled Peach Mix, and we couldn’t ask to a more perfect start to the weekend. Bananas is unparalleled when it comes to funkiness and good times as demonstrated by his ‘Flexin’ Ep,’ which we’re still bumping weekly around DC. His Djing is no different. Seamlessly jumping between house, disco, bass, and everywhere in between, Sammy B. weaves a lush tapestry of summer sounds and irresistible grooves that makes for the new soundtrack to your July.

Blisspop Mix Series #10: Brett

Brett-660x365

Hometown favorites, Brett, have been on the road for the past few days, teaming up with groups like Goldroom and The Black and The White to make the country swoon with their patented blend of indie pop wrapped up in dreamy 80s flavors. Lucky enough for us, the tour is coming through DC tonight at U Street Music Hall, bringing a grade A lineup with it of Brett, Goldroom, and local disco duo Man & Woman. If you’ve never seen Brett live, we really encourage not to miss your chance. They bring endless amounts of charm and energy to the stage that very few bands manage to accomplish. They’re also multi-faceted and were nice enough to make a mix of old and new favorites for the next installment of the Blisspop Mix Series. Take a listen below and grab tickets HERE if you haven’t yet:

01 Sabrina – Boys Boys Boys

Goldroom — Verano Mix 2014

I really don’t want to say too much, because Goldroom always brings fire when they release a mix, and this one is amazing. Screw what I have to say about it…here’s their description:

“As the sun crests and we all shed a layer or two, its hard not to feel like something is blooming and coming alive inside us. A day at the beach, or a night spent hiking to that special spot, there’s something about the summer that brings back memories of simpler times and unencumbered experiences. That’s what this mix is for, tugging yourself back to a simpler place and time. Maybe just for an hour we can forget about the bullshit we’re dealing with and remember what it was like when all that mattered was the person you were with and what adventure was about to happen…”

Cheers to that!
