Rated #8 on Beatport’s list of “Top 10 Best Soundsystems in America," Mansion Nightclub on South Beach is the hottest place to be this Miami Music Week. A year after a top-to-bottom renovation, which added multimillion-dollar lighting and a 100,000 watts of power Funktion One sound system, the new and improved Mansion is ready to impress fans with its stellar lineup. Here’s Joonbug’s picks for the club’s top three events.
Loving You Is Easy Miami with Porter Robinson and Mat Zo: Friday, March 15 (11 PM - 5 AM)
The event title says it all—it’s easy to love Miami with young guns Porter Robinson and Mat Zo running the show. After the two collaborated on their chart-topping track “Easy” last December, fans have been begging for the dynamic duo to share the stage.
With 20-year-old American electro-house whiz Porter Robinson bringing his thrashing, gut-busting bass and 22-year-old British trance beatmaker Mat Zo firing off his melodic, twisting tunes, “Loving You Is Easy Miami” is the perfect way to kick off Miami Music Week. Tickets are available here.
Mansion Presents Zedd, Alvin Risk, Funkagenda, Seven Lions, and Alex Metric: Sunday, March 17 (10 PM - 5 AM)
It’s time for Sunday Funday, so let's crank up the bass with this stellar lineup of DJs.
Headlining the evening is 23-year-old electro-maestro Zedd who skyrocketed to fame after last October’s release of his mega-hit “Clarity.” The young Russian superstar’s hi-hat sprinkled mixes will be complimented by Alvin Risk’s rattling drum rolls, über-synthesized chords and funky vocal samples.
OWSLA standouts Alex Metric and Funkagena will warm up the crowd, the former with his soul-soothing underground sounds, and the latter with his heavy-hitting hybridized twists. And we can’t forget production-pro Funkagena who’s known for his tough, yet melodic, big-room house sound. Tickets are available here.
Knife Party: Haunted House South Beach: Wednesday, March 20 (10 PM - 5 AM)
Get spooked by Mansion’s chilling transformation from high-class supper club to mischievous Haunted House with Australian duo Knife Party blasting their supernatural sounds from center stage.
Crunchy-electro masters Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen will bring their usual wall-rattling mayhem to Mansion, accompanied by special guests who have yet to be announced. Which of the duo’s internet friends will share the booth and destroy us with lasers? You’ll have to see for yourself! Tickets are available here.
