Miami's Six Best Techno Parties This Week

If Miami wasn't always a techno town, it sure as shit is one now!

This week alone, there's -- count them! -- six major international techno players booked at various clubs around town. This has gotta be a record number of bookings for a single week outside of WMC and Miami Music Week.

It's also a testament to the growth of the underground techno scene in Miami. We need to thank long-standing DJ crews like SAFE, PL0T, LINK and Un_Mute. But we've also got newcomers like Filter, Zirkus, and Vinyl. And of course, none of it would be possible without venues like the Electric Pickle, Grand Central, and Treehouse.

Get ready for a long week of hard-hitting beats!
