Behind The Music: Jean Jacket

The first time you listen to Jean Jacket, it will be incredibly difficult to think of a way to describe the act; the slightly surreal, dreamlike quality of the songs is without a ready comparison in music today. Harlowe G., the mastermind behind the act, weaves complex melodies and beats with yearning, emotional vocals to paint a picture of agonizing loss and intense desire in his first, self-titled release. The nine-track album was released on Decades Records on March 25th, the culmination of a year of work.

EDM Culture Guide:Chicken & Beer

Yesterday, the Dream Hotel was home to the Chicken & Beer event hosted by Feel Up Records presenting The Jillionaire, Walshy Fire, The Partysquad and more as well as *Special Unannounced Guests. This may have seemed like just another ordinary rooftop pool party in South Beach except for the fact that two of the headliners made up two-thirds of the electronic music project, Major Lazer. The missing third was none other than Diplo, a name everyone in the music industry knows and is notorious for throwing secret shows around Miami during the WMC week. With just a free RSVP on the Feel Up Records site, I headed to the Dream hotel with this in mind and luckily I did not leave unfulfilled.

EDM Culture Guide:Dance FloorIn Motion

There’s nothing like having the dance floor in motion to get you moving. The 2nd Annual Masters At Work At Sea with Louie Vega and Kenny Dope was an evening worth remembering. I was apprehensive of the yacht party scene until I boarded the Lady Windridge, and after 5 hours with a community that I feel honored to call friends, my perspective was transformed.

The Return of The Hongs

The Hongs are back! And just in time too! We needed some indie dance rock in our lives!

Just a couple of days ago, we got an exclusive new track from the band. The new tune takes a turn for dance, which we absolutely LOVE! So much, that we got permission from Gordon Myers (lead/bass) himself to share it with you here today. Before we get to that, The Hongs would also like to invite you all to catch them playing (the new and the old) live this week! The band will be performing twice during this week of music madness. First, at the newish Bar Stache in Ft. Lauderdale. Then, at Will Call in Downtown Miami Friday night. Joining the Hongs will be Smurfio from Afrobeta and Aaron Johnson from Brazilian Girls. That being said, whatever you do, go and catch them live and get ready to dance your pants off!

FIXED MIAMI2K14

As we all know, WMC is just around the corner. Scratch that, it’s here and knocking on the door. For the next week or so, international DJs and top notch producers will be gracing our ears with the sweet sound of music at some of the best parties in the world. Nonetheless, there’s one special party that we think will give you just the right fix of music: The 5th Annual FIXED Party at The Vagabond.This year’s lineup is even stronger than last year’s, and last year’s was wicked. Because chunky paragraphs of copied/pasted text known as “bios” are awfully boring and dull, we’re giving you the “skinny” on these EDM VIP’s along with a healthy music sampler. If at the end of this you’re left wanting more (which is very likely), you can enter to win two complimentary tickets (do it – save your ca$h for taxis and party favors) to come party with us and the Fixed posse at The Vagabond next Friday. Let’s get started!
