Swedish House Mafia may have disbanded. But former mob member Steve Angello is continuing SHM's tradition of scoping out unlikely locations for epic EDM throwdowns.
Over the years, Angello, along with associates Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso, brought the Masquerade Motel party to Midtown Miami, the sands of South Beach, and even the urban wilds of Grand Central Park.
But this year, the now-solo superstar DJ and Size Records boss has chosen Wynwood as the staging ground for #Decade, a Miami Music Week 2014 party celebrating the tenth anniversary of his label.
And its exact location: "The abandoned RC Cola Plant," Angello announces, "a beautiful old space."
Visible from I-95, the RC Cola Plant is an enormous warehouse that's splattered with graffiti.
Long empty, this former soda factory has become a landmark in Wynwood as a favorite spot for graff artists, including Miami's Crook and Crome, Lebo, and crews like MSG Cartel.
And that's apparently the reason Angello chose it for "my Size #Decade party."
"Wynwood is Miami's arts district," he explains, narrating the official trailer, "filled with creativity and new solutions, old warehouses transformed into galleries, streets looking like paintings."

#Decade will be the first music event held at the long-defunct RC Cola Plant.
"We wanted to do something special," the Size boss says. So he will be bringing nine of his best bros. And never one to underhype his ventures, Angello boasts: "It's going to be something new.
"And together, we will create history."
#Decade. Presented by Size Records. Thursday, March 27. RC Cola Plant, 550 NW 24th St., Miami. The show starts at 4 p.m. and tickets cost $30 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 18 and up.
