HARD Summer Snack Pack

So Bright & Shiny is chilling in downtown LA right now, here for HARD Summer Music Festival tomorrow, which of course we'll bring you full coverage of including a review of what's sure to be an epic night (the lineup is unreal, have a look for yourself). Anyway, I'm gonna have to keep this post short since the internet in the hotel is absolutely god awful (seriously, might as well be dial up, I didn't know wifi this slow existed anywhere..) Also be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the Bright & Shiny crew handing out stickers (and other assorted swag) in the crowd.

Ever since I first grabbed this one from our friends over at DSCOTech, I've pretty much been playing it nonstop. Dutch youngster Alvaro has concocted a ludicrously catchy slice of dutch house here. Just listen to the vocals, such gold..
Download: Sak Noel - Loca People (ALVARO Remix)

Hardwell just seems to be getting better and better with every song he releases. This song mimics that trajectory actually, as it literally only gets bigger and better as it progresses. You think you've heard it all by the 1:30 mark, until Hardwell decides to pull a fast one and absolutely blows the roof off the track with an unexpected and amazing twist of a drop at the 2:00 mark. This track is bigger than huge, it's certified gigantic.
Download: DJ Fresh ft. Sian Evans - Louder (Hardwell Remix)

New Bart B More & Tommie Sunshine collaboration, 'Bodywork'is absolutely mental. This is acid house at its best. It feels like this was made to be dropped in some dark sweaty basement rave somewhere. Straight up lunacy. Show the dudes some love and grab the release off of Calvin Harris' record label Fly Eye Records on beatport HERE.

Finally Swedish youngster Alesso gives the new LMFAO single a refreshing progressive makeover here that makes the track 10000 million times better in my opinion. A hint on how he did it ? He got rid of all the vocals...(and sprinkled some Swedish magic on there too)
