In less than four days, the whole Bright & Shiny crew will be descending up the Miami beach area. Understandably that’s pretty much all I can think about day and night even though it’s probably costing me dearly during my final exams right now. What better way to start things off than on the Miami note with Djedjotronic’s 80’s inflected techno jam “Miamite” off of BNR’s Miami Noize 2012 compilation..

Up next is another track off of Miami Noize 2012, this time by a new alias for Boys Noize called Elax (Elax —> Alex —> Alex Ridha —> Boys Noize). This track shows him in unusually restrainded form, a subtle and gorgeous mix of electro and deeper elements. In case you haven’t figured it out already, Miami Noize 2012 is fucking bomb, go buy it on Beatport.

R3hab gave this one for free on his soundcloud the other day and it’s simple, pure big room madness at its best. A mix between huge stabs and grinding electro, this one’s got everything you need to get you in the mood for Ultra.
This is Laidback Luke like you’ve probably never heard before. Coming from way back in the day (from 1996!!), this one is a relentless and deliriously driving remix of Green Velvet that sounds bigger and better the louder you play it. The bassline that comes in about 1/3 of the way through drives me totally crazy.
I’m not sure if we ever actually posted this one, but you probably recognize it from the amazing mix our dutch homeboys Keljet did for us. I recently came across this remix again recently and have been blasting it nonstop. Grab it if ya don’t have it already, this one’s a classic.
I’ve been getting more and more into the magic that is Hemingway recently. The dude packs more sunshine vibes into his tracks than like anyone I’ve ever seen.
Downtown Party Network… sounds about right for what I should be listening to.
