Miami, here we go again… Art Basel Miami comes into town and colors the city with some of the most amazing visual and musical performances from all around the world. The city is just buzzing with hundreds of Basel satellite events, street art fairs, and world-renowned djs throwing down at art venues and clubs. There really is so much to do that it’s a bit overwhelming, and if you don’t make a plan, you’ll miss the best my friends… […]
Thanks to Heineken, Bardot and hostess Camila Alvarez, La Sopita (on its third series) was a great success, adding something truly special to the flourishing music scene in Miami. Bringing together traditional Colombian drums and electronic elements, Mitú brought a unique sound and vibe to Bardot last Wednesday. Almost difficult to describe, Mitú’s sound is a combination of percussionist Frankie Tejedor and Julian Salazar’s talent. With their high energy and dance oriented sounds, Mitú had the crowed moving and clapping […]
If you’ve ever experienced any of Connan Mockasin’s songs or music videos, you know quite simply, he really is the trip. His music is spacey yet upbeat and has a sultry vibe to it, he is quite the feminine dude (reminds me of Prince.) He’s about to release a new album titled Caramel on November 4th, 2013. His last album “Forever Dolphin Love” got him attention from the music world and fellow musicians. The 10-minute rework by Erol Alkan really […]
D33J, one of the openers for Mount Kimbie, finished his DJ set with a huge hip-hop influenced mash up overlapped by complex electronic sounds. This was my first time hearing the duo live; I was really blown away to see how they brought together so many different sounds resulting in such beautifully-distinctive and cohesive tracks.
Saturday night in Wynwood, Miami was as real as real gets. My night began at Bardot where Red Bull Music Academy held a special “Couch Sessions” with DFA Records mastermind, James Murphy. Murphy kept it casual while sitting with shoes off, legs criss-crossed on one of Bardot’s swanky couches, answering questions by local journalists and music enthusiasts alike. The rest of the night’s headlining events included Yacht at Cafeina and dj sets by James Murphy and Jamie XX at Point […]
Hipsters all over Miami are still recovering from the festival that ensued one of Miami’s dopest spots: Wynwood. The first ever, and hopefully not the last iii Points music festival brought international acts that span the realms of music, technology and art and mixed them up in a never ending waterfall of coolness that drenched downtown. The event lasted three days with two main performances happening on Friday and Saturday night in one of the biggest warehouses I have ever […]
Everyone has heard of SXSW, it’s an annual event in Austin that brings together the hottest of the coolest categories anyone really cares about: Music, Art and Technology. Now, Miami is getting a festival of its very own in honor of those three very cool things called iii Points Festival. The festival runs from October 3rd until the 5th, and tons of events are happening throughout those three days. Great bands and djs like Dj Shadow, Yatch, Hercules and Love […]
Who doesn’t dig Chromeo? Seriously? Well, if you didn’t like ‘em before you probably will after watching this Album Teaser from their new album: White Women. Like Diet Radio, it’s funky, delicious and nutritious ( actually the nutrition value is arguable but who cares, right? ).
You can find Idris Muhammad’s track: “Could Heaven Be like This” during the Le Boogie Rotation, curated by Mr. WJB. I swear it’ll give you goosebumps. I’m going to save the full review for Mr. WJB, just wanted to bring to your attention. As I mentioned before, check this track and others like it during the LE BOOGIE rotation. Mondays & Wednesdays 8pm – 11:30pm Eastern
This upcoming weekend in Miami is packed with super cool events and things to do, and we thought we should let you know… Infamous disco duo Morgan Geist & Darshan Jesrani will be spinning at one of our favorite local joints, The Electric Pickle. Super trippy collective Purity Ring, will be playing a DJ set this Saturday at another dope venue, Bardot. The super crazy international event known the world over will be taking over Downtown […]
Music collective SBTRKT is teasing a new album this week. Their first and only released album “SBTRKT” was a huge success with tracks like Wildfire, Trials of the Past, and Pharaohs. The artist just released this teaser titled “IMO” that gives snippets of what’s to come on the new album. It’s also got some trippy visuals. Give it a listen below.
This French beatmaker / composer has probably dropped the best electronic album I’ve heard in a while…the whole album is dope. It’s indicative of what electronic ( and French music in general ) is all about; that is, instigating emotional responses with compositions that don’t require a vocal accompaniment. When I listen to Hakunetsu in particular, it makes me think of that moment in Star Wars when the Millennium Falcon goes to light speed. But don’t just take my work […]
