Throwback Thursday: Part Three Finale

Hello. This is the third and final installment of Throwback Thursdays. I'll have more themed days of the week in the future, so fret not. Now for some more tunage that's been in my library for ages and never lets me down.

First up we have a remix by Pilooski that will leave you feeling like you were just abducted by aliens, and loved it. It's definitely an acquired taste. PS. Little children singing always enhances never detracts.

Now Paper Planes is a classic in and of itself, but how can you say no to a DFA remix? You can't. Bassliiiiiiiiine gimme more more more.

This is one of my earliest electro obsessions. It really just speaks for itself. Genius Tocadisco remix right here.

This song has a very different feel from most of the songs that I post. Danger Mouse turns this into a very smooth hiphop track with a lot of nice variation.

Much like everything Fred Falke does, this track is about 4 hours long. No really though, he's allowed to do that because he's a wizard for real. These synths take you on a magic carpet ride.

This original track by 80Kidz is just what I need after a long day.


This is one of many Mini Mixes that I will be putting out over the next couple months. They will all have different feels. This one is a slower, more low key mix. Good for getting some work done or relaxing. If you like it, download it for free (obviously) on my Soundcloud.

Track list:

1. Gorillaz - Empire Ants Ft. Little Dragon
2. Pance Party - Simi (Original Mix)

3. Touch Sensitive - Body Stop

4. Wave Machines - Keep The Lights On (Artwork Remix)

5. Coeur De Pirate - Comme Des Enfants (Le Matos Andy Carmichael Remix)

6. Miami Horror - Sometimes (Universe Remix)

7. Royksopp - This Space

Chromeo is fantastic. I saw them live and it only strengthened the bond of artist to fan. This video shows them doing some of their work acoustically and really just drives home the proof of their artistic ability. (Special thanks to The Haskell for this one)

Love, Patrick

Sticky Icky

The past few days have seen some great tunes on the internets. Checkit oouutt.

Beautiful remix of Gyptian's "Hold Yuh" courtesy of Toddla T which stands somewhere between hip-hop and house, while utilizing d&b drums and featuring a dubby breakdown.
Gyptian - Hold Yuh (Toddla T Remix)

By now you're all well aware that we here at Bright & Shiny love to do the Dada. Here's yet another shining example of their interminable and unique mastery of the loudness.
Boy 8-Bit - The Suspense Is Killing Me (Dada Life Guerilla Fart)

Bird Peterson
crafts a downright funky electro jam below quality dirty south raps courtesy of the immortal Three 6 Mafia.
Keep My Name Out Ya Mouth (Bird Peterson Remix)

I hadn't seen Foamo's name 'round these parts for a while but I'm guessing he's back in the studio. First "Here Comes" and now this, the king of UK Fidget house always brings his A-game.
Purpl Pop - The Way (Foamo's Love Remix)

Coming all the way from Brazil, DirtyLoud's self-described jacking, nu-electro sound is a breath of filthy air.
c2001 - Disco Popp Shit (DirtyLoud Remix)

Aside from having a hilarious name, Jey Key have a dirty electro sound in the vein of fellow countryman, SebastiAn.
Lazy Late Kids - Francis (Jey Key Remix)

the Clubhaus

and Henrik B give this track by Adrian Lux the big room, progressive treatment.
Adrian Lux - Teenage Crime (Axwell & Henrik B Remode)

One of the top 5 dutch house producers, Sidney Samson brings the dutchness to this Guetta club smash.
David Guetta, Flo Rida - Club Can't Handle Me (Sidney Samson Remix)

HUGE electro sounds with a distinctly prog twist on this remix from Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike.
Dani L. Mebius & Bill the Klit - Work This Pussy (Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike Remix)

Finally, the dankest song from Sticky K to date. My homie Augustus literally went to UCSB because of a crazy YouTube video he saw of Mr. K DJing his ass off at a house party.
Sticky K - Prince of Persia by Sticky K

And last but most certainly not least, the awesome, cameo-filled music video for Duck Sauce's summer smash "Barbra Streisand" which came out yesterday.

Duck Sauce "Barbra Streisand" from Mr Goldbar on Vimeo.

P.S. if you're a Daft Punk freak like me, I recommend going to the Tron Soundtrack website, clicking the logo to enter, clicking anywhere in the blackness outside the highlighted border of the site content, and typing "derezzed" for a scrumptious surprise. Note: no field will appear to accept the code upon clicking the space outside the border.

The Best Things in Life Are...

Great news everybody. A week ago, the Shiny Disco Club label released their first digital compilation. It's fucking magnificent, and the best part? It's free. Do yourself a huge favor, and check it out below. If you're a Bright & Shiny regular, you'll be sure to see some familiar names, like Louis La Roche, Mix Chopin, LBCK, Bit Funk, and more. You can either download the whole thing in two parts on the label's soundcloud, or just pick out the ones you really like individually.

Now I could just end this post with that, and it'd be plenty, but, I'm crazy, and there's some tunes I have that you all need to hear.

You ever listen to a song you can just tell is going to be exactly what you needed within the first 15 seconds? That's how I felt with this remix from Hana Yori Kichou Na (who's featured in the mix).

The original got a lot of hype, but I'm feeling the His Majesty Andre remix a lot more.

Decent track, then Scen goes NUTS all over it right before the 3:00 minute mark. Face-melting ensues.

This past Saturday I had the pleasure of attending the Nocturnal Festival in the southern California desert. Here's a breakdown of some of my favorite acts, as well as some of the sick bangers that crushed and captivated the  ~60,000 ravers in attendance.

Dada Life
Dada Life completely stole the show. I've been an avid fan of the Dada sound for a long time now, but I'd never been fortunate enough to see them live. The crazy Swedes traversed between some of their oldest and newest productions to sew together a powerful, raw, and simply dada-licious set. It was truly something to behold.
Highlight: towards the end of their set, they whipped the crowd into a frenzy with a relentlessly long build up, only to start throwing massive inflatable bananas and champagne bottles (you can see one in the middle of the picture above) into the crowd at the drop of their epic remix of Benny Bennassi's Satisfaction. I haven't seen a crowd go bonkers like that in a long time.

Dada Life  - Just Bleep Me (Satisfaction)

Brand New Dada
They premiered their brand new remix of Hello by Martin Solveig and Dragonette, which could very well be the best Dada Life song to date. Props to Dj Roof-E for tipping me off ahead of time that they were gonna do it. A preview of the track is below, and I've also posted the original as well as a dirty dutch remix to hold you over until this monster of a track gets released.


Martin Solveig feat. Dragonette - Hello

Dirty Dutch Remix:
Martin Solveig feat. Dragonette - Hello (Bassjackers Remix)

Older (but still really great) Dada

Steve Angello
One of the three members of the house uber-group Swedish House Mafia, Steve Angello has been a Bright & Shiny favorite for quite some time now. His productions are in a league of their own with their flawless precision and monster electro sound, so I knew that I was in for a treat when he took over the decks on Saturday. His 2 hour set was marked by a superb mix of Swedish House Mafia mega-hits and underground electro bangers. 

Since everyone and their mother already has One by Swedish House Mafia, here's a great remix of it
Swedish House Mafia - One (Virus Syndicate Bust The One Remix)

Highlight: for me personally, the highlight was meeting him briefly after his set since he's one of my idols. But from a musical standpoint, I'd have to say that the highlight was the last song of the set, the classic Show Me Love. This is a song that no matter how many times I hear it, it always seems to get to me, because in many ways it's one of the underlying inspirations for this blog. Show Me Love became our unofficial anthem for Ultra 2010, which was an experience that sent me, Sir Real, and Patrick down our path to electro-house addiction, so it'll always hold a special place in my heart. Angello was fantastic.

Hopefully you all have Show Me Love by now, so here's a remix. 
Steve Angello & Laidback Luke ft. Robyn - Show Me Love (Mobin Master's Safari Mix)

Bingo Players
The Bingo Players' unique take on dutch house has intrigued me ever since I first heard one of their tracks. While they still embody the typical Dutch sound, they stray from the stylings of their contemporaries such as Chuckie and Afrojack by stripping down the Dirty Dutch formula until it's left with the bare essentials. The result is a totally unique sonic experience that's both highly danceable and borderline hypnotic. Go see these dudes if you ever get the chance.

Highlight: the song Devotion. I can't even explain how wonderful this song sounds when it's pulsing out of 30-foot-tall speakers. Tribal and gorgeous. 

Bingo Players - Devotion (Original Mix)

Ian Carey - Redlight (Bingo Players Remix)

Think Big Picture: Mega Post

I'm about to drop some serious gold all over the place, FO' FREE. No lie, this post is everything you've ever wanted, plus a picture of a badass woman in a pink onesy doin' her thang. These tracks deserve intro's, but they don't need them because their quality is evident (plus I'm busy with workworkwork).

Diplo - Must Be A Devil [Diplo] ==> shout out to Austin Monroe and Kim Dunn for this gem

Royksopp - This Space [Royksopp] ==> This song takes you on a JOURNEY

This music video for Feel It All Around by Washed Out has no smoke and mirrors, it's just brilliantly shot and extremely well done.

I'm not really sure what is happening here, but it's AWESOME.

I'll never stop loving you, Patrick

Today I have prepared for you all a nice selection of house, house, and more house. Following the first course there will be another serving of house and for dessert, a warm plate of house.

Louise La Roche has been on my radar for a while now but had never managed to really impress me with the consistency of his work until now. Sure he's always been good, but sometimes his productions seemed a bit uninspired. Those days are long gone. La Roche has been killing this french filter house sound for months now and this track is absolutely no exception.
Bright Light Bright Light - Love Part II (Louis La Roche Remix)

More dank french house, this time from actual Frenchman Jean Tonique.
Jean Tonique - Peace (Original Remix)

This may not be house, but the fat, yet simple bassline in this joint is what prompted me to put this up here. Check out NiAmOr's myspace here to get to know these enigmatic Frenchmen better.
NiAmOr - What Am I Doing Here ft. Sundance (Original Mix)

I've known Aniki to make some badass rave tracks (see: "Put On My Raving Kicks (Original Mix)"), but this joint is as french as it gets. Booty shaking and foot stomping begins at 2:47.
Aniki - Lesbian Bondage Fiasco (Original Mix)


This is about as ravey as it gets, coming from one of the main proponents of rave synths in 2010 and one half of Duck Sauce.

I can't even tell if I like this song yet. But like it or not, this man needs to be apprehended immediately and placed in a maximum security prison. I give you one of the best Dutch producers in the game, Afrojack.

I posted the Sunloverz remix of this track ages ago. Little did I know that the original was about four times as good. [EDIT: the preview/download link for "Like A Bitch" is now correct]
Paul Attrax - Like A Bitch (Original Extended Mix)

This progressive house jam comes courtesy of my boy Jimbro. It's old (2008) but it's good. Cristian Marchi knows how to make an infectious clubhaus melody.

iiiiiiit's Friiiiidaaaaaaay

Whattup. So it looks like Zippyshare has pretty much fixed whatever problems they were having with their servers, thus most if not all of our posted music should now be previewable once more. Here are some fresh tunes for everyone to celebrate with.

Be on the lookout for up and coming Canadian disco/filter house producer Mix Chopin. Loving his stuff right now.
Spiral Beach - Teddy Black (Mix Chopin Remix)

Russian pop group Tesla Boy takes Sally Shapiro's 'Miracle' and turns it into a chill-out new-wave jam. I can't help but picture myself on the beach when I listen to this.

And now for something a little more electro. Reset! (Whose new EP "My Trunk" is now available) get a nice little sprucing up from fellow Italian Broke One.

This one is nuts. Notable DJ's around the world are dropping Hey Today!'s remix of Tiga like crazy. Listen why.

And finally, I leave you with a massssivve remix from Avicii.

Preview Errors

Zippyshare is struggling with their previewable files. This is not our fault. Please be patient. In the meantime, download the songs ANYWAY.

Thanks, B&S Crew

It's Original

Alright guys, I have exams this week and needn't be foolin' with lots of text. So here are a bunch of originals, one remix, and one selfproclaimed dubstep track (!!).

LeBatman is the newest addition to the super cool Shiny Disco Club label.

Shit Robot is a part of the all powerful DFA team. Honestly, just check out who else is on that label...

Jean Tonique is unsigned, but wont be for long if he keeps putting out disco dynomite, "like such as":

HR is part of Girlfriend Records. She is a girl and thus is awesome.

Alphabet Pony is a London based Electro/Dubstep/Electronica artist on Sharks & Tigers records. This song is labeled dubstep on their soundcloud aaaaand seeing as I rarely like dubstep, I just had to post this one.

Here we have Headman, who has produced a nifty little remix of an already awesome track.

This video was shown to me by Austin Monroe, voguing coach extraordinaire, and Reid Kutrow, who murders people.

Love, Patrick

[Post script from Sir Real]
Lil Wayne, in a beautiful return to form, brings a joint featuring Drake off Wayne's upcoming LP I Am Not A Human. "Laugh now, die later mothafucka/ You's a bitch, Beta Phi Beta mothafucka" Oh lordd, the Martian is back.
Lil Wayne - Gonorrhea (No Tags)

stars so bright.

Today we're gonna start off relatively soft and get ravier... sorta.

When Penguin Prison isn't making beautiful remixes he makes some of the best pop music around, and from his bedroom at that.
Kimbra - Settle Down (Penguin Prison Remix)

Boris Dlugosch is a pro in the game and for good reason. His productions are consistently funky and French house inspired dancefloor fillers. Try saying his last name five times fast.
Hey Today! - Strange (Boris Dlugosch Remix)

Treasure Fingers always knows just what to do. I put this on the blog weeks ago, but was only able to offer you a link to the song on soundcloud. Here it is, downloadable and in full quality. Look for literal perfection at 4:28. And if you're fortunate enough to be in the LA area, go see him and many more Bright & Shiny favorites at Nocturnal this weekend!
Tensnake - Coma Cat (Treasure Fingers Remix)

Evil Nine hail from the UK and like to make real house music, complete with delectable piano stabs.
Evil Nine - Stay Up (Original Mix)

Everything Kids At The Bar touch turns to filth.
Deluka - Cascade (Kids At The Bar Remix)

Rave music.
Fckn Crew - Discoke (Bullwack Remix)

This new Foamo single is tribal yet fidgety. Incredible tune, he's done it again.
Foamo - Here Comes (Original Mix)

More tribal drums, this time from Jamaica... or wherever it is Diplo draws his wonderfully eccentric inspirations.
Proxy - 8000 (Diplo Remix)

I have a refreshingly bizzarre array of hip-hop to share with you all today. This first track is from the Gucci Man himself, featuring warm production from Pharrell and a sick verse from Ms. Minaj.
Guccie Mane - Haterade ft Pharrell & Nicki Minaj

Next is the Bearmod remix of a track by Haitian rapper Mr. OK. This beat is otherworldly.
Mr. OK - Yaya ft. Larose (Bearmod Remix)

Finally is a track by Seymour Bits, featuring walking internet memes Die Antwoord on the beat.
Seymour Bits - Spectacular ft. Die Antwoord

Yo. A little late on the posting today courtesy of the Redskins game, which, needless to say, I'm not too happy about. Anyways, yesterday you all were inundated with some heavy clubhaus, so how about some smooth house to freshen up?

Here's some new Boys Noize to start things off right. Buy the 320kpbs version on beatport!
Boys Noize - Yeah

Dutch disco house producer Leonardus is responsible for this aptly titled groove tune
Leonardus - Smile (Original Mix)

More french house goodness, this time from Boston duo Swivel Hips. It really kicks in around 1:30.
Swivel Hips - Cheaters (Original Mix)

These last two are very hard compared to everything above, but they're too good to not post. Get your week started off fast with a banger from Pance Party, who always bring it, and a very exciting preview from Shameboy's upcoming EP.
The Dance Party - Sasha Don't Sleep (Pance Party Remix)

Shameboy - Battery Acid (Single edit)

Whhaattuupp y'all, long time no see. I'm here today to bring you some of that good shit, some of of those huge tunes that sound perfect when they're much too loud to understand. That's right, this post is exclusively Clubhaus. I'm coming live and direct from my new home in Evanston, IL with some of the realest tracks you ever heard, so wipe the sleep out your eyes and clean your ears; this is gonna be a wild ride.

These joints define the future of clubhaus, incorporating the likes of progressive house and dirtydeep Dutch house.
Dem Slackers - Let's Go (Bart B More 'Lessgo' Remix)

Hardwell - Molotov (Original Mix)

Angger Dimas - Are You Ready (Original Mix)

Avedon is an American electro house producer out of LA and has won my heart with this progressive remix.
Sam Wilkes - Let Him Go (Avedon Remix)

Kissy Sell Out is a BBC Radio One DJ turned remixer with this, the best remix of Art vs. Science's creepy "Magic Fountain" I have yet heard.
Art vs. Science - Magic Fountain (Kissy Sell Out's Dark Crystal Version)

The German version of Jesus, TAI has got his shit together in such a violently refreshing way it is simply absurd. This man churns out the delicious, face-melting electro on such a consistent basis that he is not even allowed to step into Malaysian territory without fear of being immediately extradited. Prepare for the beatdown.
Wiley - Electric Boogaloo feat. J2K & Jodie Connor (TAI Remix)

Drop The Lime - Sex Sax (TAI Remix)

Mason - Exceeder (TAI Remix) [GREAT SCOTT!]

I have never wanted to dance more in my life than when I first heard this song. This is absolute filth. Well played, Ado.
Fatboy Slim vs. Herve - Machines Can Do The Work (Ado Done Most The Work Mix)

The much sought after version of "You Need A Ladder" that the mau5 drops in his sets, featuring Joel's answer to Luciana, (total fox) SOFI.
deadmau5 - Sofi Needs A Ladder

Now we're gonna play a little game. This next song is sampled on a song which is straight haus music. If you comment below with the song name I will send you $1 in US legal tender. Guessers, start your engines.

Gwen McCrae - All This Love I'm Giving

It occurred to me today that where most of you guys are right now, summer is coming to a close and fall is slowly creeping in. Unless you're one of our readers from the southern hemisphere, of course.. in which case it's becoming springtime... which is seriously fucked up.. but anyways I just got to Santa Barbara, California today, where it's more or less summer all year long. In honor of that incredible fact, I present to you the ultimate summer playlist. (not including the plethora of great summer jams that we've already posted, obviously)

This first one is a brand new Bit Funk remix of a Grum track. I'm surprised that the world didn't end from an excess of awesomeness when they decided to collaborate. Definitely hope to see more of this combination in the future.

Nothing says summer quite like Aeroplane.

Ah yes, Sun Is Up by Inna. This song reminds me of watching the sun rise on a beach in Ibiza next to Simian Mobile Disco with my boys Will and Pete (shout out). It also reminds me of getting mugged at sunset on that same beach 15 hours later. Sweet and sour. Gotta love the summer.

Hervé's newest single. Hervé can do no wrong.

Hervé - Together

Summertime, and the livins easy. Especially when Snoop Dogg shows up out of nowhere high as shit and decides to run a train all over a classic sublime song.

More Snoop, this time with New York house guru Armand Van Helden

Yelle. Tepr. Need I say more?

Dada Life. I literally could not get enough Dada Life if I tried. I try every day.

Bibio, the alien from planet chillwave. (I think that could be the most flattering introduction I've ever given)

ps, I snuck in the new experimental album cover in one of the songs today. let us know what you think

Oh, and the HARD Haunted Mansion trailer just came out. Bright & Shiny will definitely be covering this.
