When Afrobeta scored the sweetest time slot at Ultra Music Festival's Bayfront Live Stage just before Orbital's performance, we really hoped the duo would make the best of it and rep Miami well. Not surprisingly, they did, and perhaps that's why they're crossing the pond. Tony Smurphio and Cuci Amador will make their first European appearance at this year's Glastonbury Festival in the UK, along with subsequent dates in Ibiza and Amsterdam.
But before the pair's departure, Miami will have a chance to wish Afrobeta bon voyage at Grand Central this Saturday. It will also give listeners a chance to hear stuff from their latest EP, Do You Party?, which features the catchy title track along with the their best song to date, "Play House." Along for the ride is Brooklyn DJ Dances With White Girls as well as local DJs Mike Deuce, Jessica Who?, Laura of Miami, and Stravinsky.
