Costume Duck

Sir Real and I have literally the nicest collection of jams for you guys this morning. Those of you that have been following us on twitter already know about this incredible remix of Yelle and Crookers' "Cooler Couleur." We know this song has already been remixed a bunch, but here it gets a fresh sounding, funky ass, French treatment by a mysterious dude named Voyou. We can't really find anything about this guy, but if this song is any indication, he's got some serious skills, so we hope to see big things from him in the future. This track comes off the recent Southern Fried Tons of Remixes compilation, which I highly recommend you check out (buy). The track starts out groovey and entertaining, but it really takes off and blossoms around the 3 minute mark.
Be sure to follow our twitter (@Br1ghtShiny) for more highly Bright & Shiny stuff and awesome giveaways if you know what's good for you.

Crookers & Yelle - Cooler Couleur (Voyou Remix)

We're a little bit late on this one, but I was scanning the beatport charts the other day and came across an absolute MONSTER of a track by Slavic techno wizard Umek. If you have heart problems or suffer from epilepsy, we recommend against listening to this track. This shit is straight terrifying, but it's also got such a relentless and perfectly executed rhythm to it that it's really impossible not to like. One of our favorite tracks right now. Crank it up, then check this one out.

Umek - Back In The Race

This is literally the craziest/best remix of the classic Funkagenda anthem "What The Fuck".  Unleash this beast upon unsuspecting dancefloors to have your car vandalized.

Funkagenda - What The Fuck (DJ Red Remix)

Digging through the crates, we recently stumbled upon this classic Boys Noize track.  It hails from the hey day of electro, 2006, and it's the toughest thing we've heard in a while. For whatever reason when we listen to this we keep picturing some sort of huge robot crushing a city. If this doesn't have you bobbing your head, you must be some sort of invalid.

Shiny Toy Guns - Le Disko (Boys Noize Vocal Mix)

Those of you that have been following us for a while know that we're huge fans of the Santa Barbara native Sticky K. I was shuffling through the depths of Beatport the other day when I stumbled upon an EP featuring remixes by Sticky K and Mustard Pimp (another Bright & Shiny favorite). I was ecstatic and quickly bought both of the remixes, wanting to see how both of these guys interpreted the Willowz' original track. I was extremely underwhelmed with the Mustard Pimp effort, and wouldn't even come close to suggesting it. The Sticky K effort on the other hand... completely blew me away. Straight incredible. This guy has really stepped up his game recently, and this is probably the most impressive production I've come across by him just in terms of how masterfully everything is put together. Be sure to show the UCSB alumni some love and buy the track off Beatport here.

Keep an eye out for lots of upcoming Bright & Shiny changes, including a new (higher quality) audio player.

Stay Classy,
Augustus + Sir Real
