We’re back with the weekly Blisscap. featuring tracks from heavy hitters like Eats Everything, Amtrac, and Justin Jay as well as some killer mixes from Moon Boots and Colour Vision. Check it out:
This duo based out of Brooklyn has the slow burning soul going strong.
Coming off of Red Bull’s Sound Select label in November, “Side FX” is a progressive head nodding piece of electronic funk that lays the vibes down in thick, slathering portions. The track is driven by a series of synths that punctuate the groove with bewitching and provocative results that call upon similar pieces of spaced out electronica such as Freezepop’s “Less Talk More Rokk” and early work by Shiny Toy Guns. The real star here, however, is the sultry delivery by vocalist denitia. When she croons about the mistakes she makes on the regular with a self-aware angst reminiscent of other songstresses like Fiona Apple et al., it’s heartfelt and believable and confessed with an utmost empathy. It’s as if the words pouring through the soundscape are an apologetic precursor to anything bad that’s bound to happen. And because it’s so vibrant and emotive, this is the kind of song that will have you humming in your car on your commute to work, on your morning jogs, or in the bathroom doing your personal business. This is an earworm that deserves to be heard.
Check out “Side FX” after the jump and be sure to grab your copy of denitia & seine’s EP when it’s released in November.
I’ve had this track on repeat straight for the last several hours. Nu disco savant on the rise, Colour Vision, just released his rework of Ten Walls’s epic “Walking With Elephants,” and it’s essentially everything I wish the original was and more. He keeps the central hook of the track, layering it with the perfect amount of tropical flair and steel drums. The energy gets bumped t0o, making it nearly irresistible to groove to.

LA duo, Bleitch, just debuted the video for their single, “This Is Out Youth,” and the visual companion is equally as dreamy as the track itself. The video follows the duo through a series of vignettes ultimately resulting in a late night beach party. It shares a sense of epicness with the song that translates easily over the synthwave soundscape and indie pop vocals to make for an enjoyable view. Check it out below:
Deep house giants, Dusky, smash it out of the park with their latest single. Their second release for 17 Seconds, “Yoohoo” is a tech-infused deep house stomper. It’s hypnotic bass groove builds throughout the song into a massive piano groove guaranteed to leave the dance floor in pieces. This is a killer track from a duo that only gets better and better with each song. Listen below and catch them October 22nd at Flash:
