Soul Clap at the Electric Pickle July 23
For a tag team that hails from a city where Puritans landed, where Paul Revere rode his horse, and where tea was dumped into that infamous harbor, Soul Clap knows its roots. Of course, we're talking about the P-Funk Mothership, which Eli Goldstein and Charlie Levin say transported them to Earth. Maybe it's the hopping among intergalactic dance floors that made them so grounded.
The Boston DJ-production duo will take its set to the Electric Pickle — along with Miami hip-hop crew ArtOfficial and DJ Brad Strickland — for a night of sexy dance beats, old-school mixes, and electro space jams. Levin says they love Miami because when they're here, they "feel smoothed out like Don Johnson meeting Jan Hammer in Tony Montana's limousine on the way to Uncle Luke's booty barbecue."
The party's theme is Set Your Fazers on Fun, so get ready to dance to the pulsating, boom-boom thumps that make up Soul Clap's self-described '80s funk-influenced, synth-heavy, slow-mo music. All Goldstein and Levin want is for you to break a sweat, have some fun, and maybe make some babies.
10 p.m. Saturday, July 23, at the Electric Pickle, 2826 N Miami Ave., Miami; 305-456-5613; electricpicklemiami.com. Cover costs $10.
