It is only a few days before the parties start for Miami Music Week, and the excitement is almost too much to bear. And for a good reason too; MMW hosts a whole lot of pool parties, boat cruises, and exclusive shows featuring the best names in electronic dance music, ending in the three day musical masterpiece that is Ultra Music Festival. Of course, not everyone gets to attend all of these wonderful gathering, or any at all for that matter, which is why UMF Radio will be broadcasting live on SiriusXM radio all throughout Miami Music Week.
SiriusXM launched UMF Radio and hosted the SiriusXM Music Lounge at the W Hotel in Miami where the world could hear everything from live DJ sets and interviews with the world’s biggest DJs, all of which were broadcasted on UMF Radio during Miami Music Week.
UMF Radio featured live DJ sets and interviews with artists like Tiësto, Dyro, Calvin Harris, Afrojack, Ferry Corsten, Krewella, Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz, Steve Aoki, Avicii, Kaskade, Axwell, Nervo, Alesso, Paul Oakenfold, Jacob Plant, Thomas Gold, R3hab, Sander van Doorn, Dirty South, and more.
Missing Miami much? We most definitely are! You can relive all the live sets and interviews right on Sirius XM's Electric Area here.
One of the most recognizable and energetic names in the realm that is dance music is Mr. Steve Aoki. The bossman of Dim Mak records is making a stop at the luxe LAVO NYC nightclub this Thursday, Oct. 18th and in proper Aoki fashion some ritual cake throwing may occur or better...a casual stage dive.
A leader in electronic dance music established in 1996, Aoki has a pretty sweet tracklist of production and remix work. His recent album, Wonderland, features top talent such as LMFAO, Wynter Gordon, Laidback Luke, and Lil Jon. While he is a hybrid producer his DJ sets are just as chaotic and filled with gripping progressive and electro beats.
Listen below to his recent set on Electric Area to get a taste of what's going to go down this Thursday!
Miss out on Ibiza this year? Never fear, because the very young and talented Spanish DJ/producer Danny Avila will be launching his very own brand new weekly radio show called ‘Ready to Jump’ on Sirius XM’s Electric Area. Avila’s music has been making its way all throughout Ibiza’s legendary nightlife this summer.
Danny has worked with such electronic dance music superstars as Fedde le Grand, David Guetta, Afrojack, and Marin Solveig. At only 16, the rising prodigy got his start in dance music at just 12 years old, and has now earned himself the ‘Best Newcomer DJ Award’ at the Vicious Music Awards in 2011.
Ready to get Sirius Hardwell fans? This Thursday 7/19, the young Dutch DJ/producer gave a select group of fans an exclusive live set in the SiriusXM studio in New York City. Before his set, the award-winning spaceman himself (aka Robbert van de Corput) was interviewed by Sirius XM Radio DJ and Producer Liquid Todd.
Hardwell revealed on air all about his tracks “Spaceman” and “Cobra," what it’s been like to work with EDM luminary Tiesto, his new compilation mix, and what his hectic touring schedule is like.
