BEST NEW MUSIC TREND

Dance rock

BEST NEW MUSIC TRENDDance rockOkay, like most trends that blow up in Miami, this one isn't necessarily new. DJs at downtown nightclubs such as Soho Lounge and I/O have been mashing together tracks by rock bands such as LCD Soundsystem, electro artists such as Miss Kittin, and even uptempo hip-hop cuts by Outkast for well over a year now. Eventually popular SoBe DJs such as Mark Leventhal began doing the same thing, mixing AC/DC and Nirvana with Prince, the J. Geils Band, and the Strokes. Some jocks are better at blending genres than others; it doesn't take much talent to play the same stuff you can hear on classic-rock radio. But give this fad credit for inspiring people to expand their minds beyond hip-hop and progressive house.
