Miami Music Week is down to the 10-day countdown and it’s about that time to start setting your plans in stone. Miami will be home to not only the fans but an ultra-stellar group of all-star artists, Thomas Gold being one of them. Gold and his camp have revealed his various parties throughout WMC/MMW and of course, Ultra Music Festival.
Friday, March 15 marks the kick off party at Space with “Thomas Gold Presents Fanfare” featuring special guests Feenixpawl & Otto Knows. The following night, Saturday, March 16, WALL welcomes Thomas Gold and Friends before he makes his weekend one appearance at Ultra on Sunday, March 17 with a performance on the “Megastructure” stage.
With a brand new year ahead, Josh Cohen, better known as Stereoshock, has jumped into 2013 with a pretty solid landing so far. Just releasing his remix of NERVO and Hook N Sling's "Reason," the young producer is only continuing to prove he's serious about his work and has no intentions of slowing down. With that said, we here at Joonbug are proud to host Episode # 44 of Electric Nightlife, Cohen's podcast show that began just one year ago and has since received major playtime around the world as well as special guests such as Sandro Silva, Starkillers, and W&W.
Thomas Shaw and Ryan Henderson, the members of Project 46, have created a progressive house sound all their own. Building on poppy synths and smooth transitions, the duo has found success in their remixes of Deadmau5’s “The Veldt,” Dirty South and Thomas Gold’s “Eyes Wide Open,” as well as in their own original productions.
Project 46 will bring down the house at Santos Party House this Saturday night. Check out its mixes below:
Review by: Ian Micallef
Robbie’s opening acts consisted of many incredibly talented, yet wildly under-rated tech house and progressive house DJs. Manuel De La Mare took the stage at 4 p.m. with a tech-house set that drew a huge crowd from the first arriving ferries. Stefano Noferini played another 90-minute tech-house set that made audience members groove and jive away.
An interesting turn of tempo came with the sounds of progressive and electro house - provided by DJs Paige and EDX who were sandwiched between the other two tech DJs. Adding these bolder, more defined sounds into the mix allowed the crowd to rage hard under the sun for some electro and progressive tracks, and then rest and groove for the much simpler and slower tech house sets.
Ten miles of darkness and 2000 cars separated us from the festival we had only dreamt about. As we stared forward, excited and anxious, there was a faint flicker towards the sky and then the familiar explosion of fireworks in the distance. A roar ripped through the desert from the cars around us. Indian chiefs and their topless girlfriends yelled and cheered out their windows, as packs of neon spattered fur boots ran by on foot. This was the scene I had heard so much about. The one that would save dance music events
With the insanity of Ultra Fest raging and rollicking throughout the collectively rabid masses, the chaos shall inevitably continue (and expand) with the onset of the weekend! Miami—fully in the throes of musical ecstasy and riotous carnal whims—is gearing up for a weekend of party infamy. It is the inevitable culmination of 10 days of music, debauchery, and the youthful American spirit—a deluge of fiesta!
More than you average, run of the mill weekend; ULTRA weekend is comprised of 21 bashes—featuring the sickest tunes at the most bangin’ spots—in what is truly the most grandiose swan song in Festival history!
