Clearly the action at last week's Detroit
Electronic Music Festival carried over to Miami this weekend, because
it's just nonstop stellar bookings Friday through Sunday at various
hotspots throughout the city.
Friday, June 4
To start things off tonight, there are two different parties in
Wynwood. Esteemed techno DJ/producer Joel Mull will stop by the
Electric Pickle for an exclusive performance courtesy of LINK, in celebration of their one-year anniversary at the forefront of
Miami's underground techno scene. Joel Mull has staked his reputation as one of Sweden's top
techno artists since the mid-'90s, with releases on labels like Drumcode, Cocoon,
Audiomatique, and Saved. LINK residents Maurizio & Danyelino will be
joining him on the decks for surely another energetic Friday night
techno session at the Pickle's upstairs dancefloor.
Joel Mull at Electric Pickle. Friday, June 4. Friday, April 2, 10 p.m.-5 a.m. 2826
N. Miami Ave., Miami. 305-456-5613; electricpicklemiami.com
Berlin-based DJ/producer and Rekids label owner Radio Slave, a.k.a.
Matt Edwards, will also perform tonight at Grass Lounge in the
Design District. The party's hosted by SAFE, who previously booked him at the
same venue during Art Basel 2009. Edwards is one of international EDM's most prolific producers,
and a late-night peak-hour set specialist with a penchant for deep and
hypnotic minimal grooves. They're best appreciated through the pristine custom
Dynacord sound system that SAFE always rocks at their parties. Residents
Lazaro Casanova, Conway, and Gil Montiel will play opening sets.
Radio Slave at Grass. Friday, June 4. 11 p.m.-5 a.m. 28 NE 40th St.,
Miami. 305-573-3355; grasslounge.com
Saturday, June 5
Saturday night marks the return of Vagabond regular Lee Burridge to the
downtown venue. The globe-trotting British DJ/producer has made his name
known from Hong Kong's local EDM scene, which he helped found in the
'90s, to the Burning Man Festival in Nevada, which also inspired his free-spirited
"GET WEIRD" parties. Boasting a genre-bending blend of stripped-down
progressive house, techno, and breaks,
Burridge's sets are energetic and colorful one-of-a-kind experiences.
Vagabond residents Sean Drake, Ray Milian, Ryan Evans, Carmel Ophir and
A-Train will keep the grooves going all night as
Lee Burridge at the Vagabond. Saturday, June 5, doors open at 10 p.m. 30 NE
14th Street, downtown Miami. 305-379-0508; thevagabondmiami.com
Sunday, June 6
On Sunday the action will start early on in the day, since the LINK
crew will continue its anniversary celebration with special guest
Ida Engberg at Grass Lounge. The Swedish DJ/producer is one of the
fastest-rising female stars in the international EDM scene. A resident
at Stockholm's legendary
Cocktail Club, she has gained increasing international notoriety since
She's played alongside Roger Sanchez, Eric Prydz,
Sebastian Ingrosso, Steve Lawler, and John
Dahlbäck, who signed her to his Pickadoll label in 2007. With her
eclectic tapestry of sounds, ranging from melodic techno and funky
minimal to deep house
and electro, Engberg is sure to put on a swinging afternoon set on
Ida Engberg at Grass. Sunday, June 6. 4 p.m.-12 a.m. 28 NE 40th St.,
Miami. 305-573-3355; grasslounge.com
Last and certainly not least is a highly anticipated
performance by Joris Voorn at Set in South Beach.
The widely popular and critically acclaimed Dutch DJ/producer has risen
through the international ranks and charts since his first releases in
the late '90s on labels like Cocoon and Green.
With an energetic live
performance style to match his singular brand of deep, proggy techno
infused with electro and breaks, Voorn's sets are not to be missed.
Catch him on Sunday night along with Sundance residents Biz Martinez,
