Detroit can’t let Miami have all the fun!

Movement just posted the day-to-day lineup for 2015. So exciting! 


Movement Phase 2 Released Today

Just two phases this year (the first one was fantastic; excited about Jets with Jimmy Edgar + Machinedrum LIVE)!

And still – NO DEETRON :(.

Miami Music Week 2015 Preview: Wednesday, March 25

While I may be forever ambivalent about Seth Troxler (this probably deserves a longer post in the future), this set turned me around on the issue of his talent — the kid’s got chops. When he’s good (read: sober enough to function?), Troxler’s sets are a lot like Dennis Ferrer’s great sets — sexy, surprising, chancy, tight, funky, and ultimately satisfying. Believe me, it pains me to say this because often in interviews he comes across as a spoiled, entitled fuck-up brodude. (Trust: watch the Seth Troxler and Martinez Brothers “Between the Beats” videos back to back and see what you think.)

Alas, I’ve come not to bury Troxler, but to praise him. This set just ROCKED MY SOCKS:

While watching this set the other evening, we resolved to go to the Fuck Jams party on Wednesday of MMW. If the set weren’t enough to persuade, the poster alone might have been. Lineup will probably include surprises but currently includes DJ Three, Harvard Bass, and Troxlers Tuskegee pals, the aforementioned Bros. Martinez. Here’s hoping he brings back in Scotsman Jackmaster (SO much more to come on Jackmaster, who is edging out Ferrer as my present favorite DJ), who played this party last year.)

Miami Music Week 2015 Preview: Thursday, March 26

Thursday is jam-packed with parties. We’ll start with the Pete Tong pool party at the Surfcomber.

This is the lineup thus far, though I suspect Pete has some more aces up his sleeve.

[Note: Below is edited from the original post, because I accidentally posted a Friday party on Thursday.]

Thursday evening, with any luck after a disco nap and maybe a bite from La Sandwicherie, we will head to the Snatch Records party (we can’t say this without giggling every time) at Hush.   

This was one of the earliest parties we got tickets to. The lineup is great all around, but neither Alvin nor I had ever seen Italy’s Riva Starr. (There’s more here, as usual, on Resident Advisor.) My favorite track is the one below; you may have heard it around (and if you haven’t, you SURELY will at WMC or somewhere this summer, as it’s what they call a BANGER, my friends).
