Alegria (Tommy Boy)

After a long, controversial annexation by the hip-hop crowd, Miami’s ever-evolving club scene is re-embracing the gay community in a big way, from crobar’s Sunday-night Glee Club to Mansion’s Anthem bash. Over at Space, local DJ Abel Aguilera has been holding court with Orbit (scheduled for a Fourth of July bash on Friday, July 2), a monthly party undoubtedly inspired by his overwhelming success as a resident at Alegria, which is currently held at crobar NYC.

Alegria is DJ Abel’s documentation of his energetic, crowd-pleasing style, a two-disc set that explores the multihued range of tribal. The first set, subtitled “Peak Hour,” focuses on slamming hi-NRG bangers such as the Nightcrawlers’ house classic “Push the Feeling On (Rosabel Club Anthem).” The second disc, subtitled “After Hour,” is darker and more percussive, featuring highlights such as Pony Club’s strong, bass line-driven “Saucy (Hess and Nick Dem Q remix).” For better or worse, though, the compilation sounds monochromatic. DJ Abel forces the listener to get lost in the groove, leaving quaint notions of song structure and vocal hooks behind. — Mosi Reeves
