With Miami Music Week inching closer and closer, it's getting harder and harder to plan out where to go and who to see. Luckily, HARD Events is making the decision easier by returning to downtown Miami for two nights of HARD Miami on Wednesday, March 26th and Thursday, March 27th. Setting up shop at Grand Central, the team responsible for HARD Day of the Dead and HOLY SHIP!!! will be putting on back to back nights of blazing beats with two of the hottest lineups.
Friday, February 7th
This Friday night, Primary presents a deep and different line up of talent being headed up by Option4, who describes himself as "more house than tech, more deep than disco." With support by Dustin Seridan, Bisharat, and Elliot Osborne, the party will be hot and heavy all night. Tickets are available online now for between $8 and $12 for everyone 21 and older.

Prepare for absolute mayhem at The MID when RL Grime & SALVA's North American Tour comes to Chi-town on Friday. Supported by ZEBO and PHNM, the tour continues to dominant city after city with repeatedly sold out shows, this one included. While online pre-sale tickets, which only guarantee entry until 11:30 P.M., are no longer available, general admission tickets could still be available at the door so get there early and you might get lucky.
Friday, January 24th
Phonic Fridays at ZEPPELIN this weekend with DC's third serving of trance mastery, this time from the young yet immensely talented Ben Gold, a name quickly climbing its way to the top with the likes of Armin Van Buuren and Above & Beyond. If you haven't had a chance to catch any of the phenomenal acts in this year's Phonic Fridays series yet, Ben Gold will be the show that keeps you coming back week after week, hunting for another night of musical perfection. Tickets are still available online for $15, and they are well worth it.

Toronto electro duo, Zeds Dead, came out with an exclusive Holiday Mix 2013 yesterday on Soundcloud. The hour long mix starts of rhythmic and groovy then progresses to feature diverse and eclectic electro-house sounds featuring Artists like Deorro, RL Grime, Daft Punk, and some of their own original tracks in the mix, as well.
Best part of it all? It's up for free downloads so you can enjoy this mix anytime, anywhere.
24 year old Baauer and 22 year old RL Grime are on the forefront of changing the trap game. This past summer, the two of them teamed up to headline a tour across America together, known as the Infinite Daps Tour. Joining in on the tour were Ryan Hemsworth and Jim-E-Stack as the supporting artists.
Between the four of them, there was nothing off limits in their new documentary, Infinite Daps, which was filmed during their tour. The documentary gives an insider's view on behind-the-scenes coverage of their daily lives as the biggest producers of their time. RL Grime and the rest of the cast fondly calls Baauer by his real name, Harry, and the four friends are shown go-karting together on their down time.
RL Grime is back with another mix for the Halloween season. No surprises here - a whole lot of trap and bass on this filthy mix. Have a safe and turnt up Halloween weekend!

Check out last year's mix as well.
RL Grime, also known as Clockwork, has been leading the way for the trap producers who are slowly making their way onto the scene. The trap sound has been in the works for a while now, with its down south Hip-Hop influences and electronic melodies becoming more and more diverse by the day. Now you got all kinds of trap from fast paced, grimey trap, to chilled out, smooth trap. RL Grime has touched upon almost all facets of the sound, and now drops a new song, "Because Of U" that lays on the more relaxed side of the genre's spectrum. It can be streamed and downloaded via Soundcloud right now.
