Groundbreaking DJ/remixer/producer/radio host DEE JAY SILVER has revealed that his new single “Shine,” featuring vocals from Joey Hyde, will be released Friday, July 6 across all digital music platforms. The dance music track marks his first new taste of original music this year, with more to come, and follows his previous original songs: the electronic music single “Made To Do” (2017) and country hit “Just Got Paid” (2016), the latter of which has been played over 1 million times on Spotify.
The open-format performer is known for his unique ability to blend all types of music from hip-hop and rock to house and country, and that eclectic style shines through in both his live shows and original music. In a new June 12 interview with Forbes.com, SILVER noted, “Nothing makes things worse than being pigeonholed into a genre. And I just don’t believe in that anymore.” Of recording his new music, he added, “I want music I can play when I open for Jason Aldean. I want songs that I can play when I’m with Kane Brown. I want songs that I can play at Rehab in Vegas or play at Hyde Bellagio. I want it to have a part of the night where, whatever I put in, I made that, and put my heart and soul into it, and see a crowd react to it no matter what setting we’re in.”
And there will be a few new settings on the horizon this year as DEE JAY SILVER has also announced new residencies at Hyde Nightclub in Las Vegas and at Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar in Nashville. SILVER kicks off his residency at Hyde at the Bellagio on June 30, with additional appearances confirmed for August 7, September 21, October 30 and November 3. This new appearance in Sin City is in addition to his in-progress residency at the Rehab Pool at the Hard Rock Hotel, his fourth consecutive year at the famed pool party, which continues July 1 and 4 and September 21. The Nashville-based artist is also keeping busy while home with his residency at the brand new Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar. DEE JAY SILVER helped open the Lower Broadway hotspot on June 6 following the CMT Awards and can be seen there on the following dates: July 6, 7, 8 and 29, August 12 and 26, and September 7, 9 and 16.
Beyond Nashville and Las Vegas, DEE JAY SILVER is touring the country this year with his good friend Jason Aldean on the “High Noon Neon” Tour, for his 9th tour as the country superstar’s resident DJ. The cross-country trek–also featuring support from Luke Combs and Lauren Alaina–resumes July 13 in Bethel, NY and runs through September 29 in Irvine, CA, stopping in Dallas, Charlotte, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Toronto, San Diego and New York City at Madison Square Garden August 11, among many other cities.

On top of this, DEE JAY SILVER continues to host (since 2014) his own weekly radio show “The Country Club with Dee Jay Silver,” syndicated nationally via Compass Media Networks every Friday and Saturday night. He also currently serves as a music editor for DJCity, providing the record pool with country tracks and remixes, and is an official Budweiser Partner for 2018.
Through it all, DEE JAY SILVER remains as inspired by music as ever, as Forbes.com pointed out. In that in-depth interview, SILVER shares, “When I listen to Eric Church or Snoop Dogg, I want to escape from whatever I’m dealing with that day. You let music cure whatever hurts you and take you to the place you need to be. Music makes you cry. Music makes you smile. It has an effect on a person and I think that’s the power of music. I can hear one song, you can hear the same song, and we can have two different feelings. There’s no right or wrong way to listen to it. That’s the healing power of music. That’s the positive power.”
