First and foremost, I have some very exciting news for you guys, the Bright & Shiny nation. We're stoked to announce that tonight is the first of what will become many more Bright & Shiny club nights. We decided to go big for our first event and teamed up with our friends over at to bring in the kings of frisco-disco, none other than the legendary Italians Fare Soldi. If you're in the St. Louis area, this is an event you don't want to miss. Fare Soldi will be bringing the heat along with our very own DJ PK for a night of over the top raging and straight up hedonism. It's going down at the ultra-stylish Exo Lounge starting at 10pm, (18 to party 21 to drink, unless you got a fake ID doe..) head on over to the Facebook event page for all the details. Now for some music..

Tim mason, the Brighton-based producer on Steve Angello's Size Records who brought you the massive summer anthem 'The Moment,' is back again with another monstrous track. This new effort, a remix of 'I Can't Help Myself' by Lucid, simply has big room madness written all over it. I can't wait to drop this one in a dj set. Absolutely nuts.

I've honestly been waiting for this one to get released for download for months. This bootleg by GTA of the Phoenix classic 'Fences' is honestly amazing, but for the longest time it was only available for preview on their soundcloud. At first the group said they would release it when they reached 400 twitter followers, but it turns out they were kind enough to just give it away early the other day. Do something nice and follow the dudes on twitter over at We've said it before and I'll say it again, these guys are the future..

Eric Prydz is one of the few dance music artists out there who you can consistently count on every EP he releases being worth a listen. His newest release, 2night, is worth more than just one listen, this is classic Eric Prydz and I'm sure a song that will be getting played over and over for years to come like Pjanoo or Miami to Atlanta. Tiesto himself called this track 'absolutely amazing' and I'd have to agree, it's filled with beautifully melodic piano lines and thumping kicks that combine to make it an instant progressive house classic. Grab the release on Beatport.

To be honest, I'm not exactly sure how all of us at Bright & Shiny managed to sleep so hard on Porter Robinson's new Spitfire EP. I guess it probably has to do with the dubstep-fused tendancies of a lot of the tracks on the ep, but in between the dubby tracks are a couple of absolute anthems, like the song Unison. By far my favorite track off of the ep, Unison showcases Porters unique and highly technical production skills, and is a perfect blend of hands-in-the-air, big room progressiveness along with harder-hitting electro house. Give it a listen below and check out the full release on Beatport.
