Better Than: A night without free tequila.
The party's always been crazy at Grand Central. But this past Sat ... More >>
Drop The Lime is the slick-haired, black-clad leader of New York's Trouble & Bass crew, though you might mistake him for a vampire if you saw him on the street.
He's been DJing for about a decade. But he's recently hit his stride, creating his own unique sound by incorporating rockabilly and s ... More >>
Last night's heaving, multi-room party thrown jointly by L.A.-based Smog and Miami-based Basshead was intense in every aspect. The volume was at 11, the revelers' energy was at 11, the level of confusion trying to get around the sprawling downtown club Mekka was at 11. (Seriously, the place is li ... More >>
Miami has a lot of the names, most of them stupid.The past decade saw the 305 officially branding itself "the Magic City." Some detractors call our fair banana republic "The City That Sleeps Late." Others have taken to "The Big Mango," the latest sign that most of Dade County has a substance abus ... More >>
March is total mayhem for the Miami music fan.
For a solid week, the world's greatest DJs descend upon the city to make our clubs, hotels, and poolside bars their bitch. With over 300 parties, it's nothing to drop hundreds before the workweek even ends. But it doesn't have to be that way. There ... More >>
UK producer Ramadanman.Dubstep was impossible to avoid during last month's Miami Music Week.
Even electro-house megaproducers like Fedde Le Grand and Benny Bennassi threw some dubby stuff down in the middle of their Ultra Music Festival sets. So it's safe to say that the womp-womp has hit its s ... More >>
Ultra, beyond Thunderdome.Ultra's third day was intense. Things were getting real Mad Max out there in the field, what with the stranded, tired, and simply out of their minds wandering around in the swirling dust bowl that surrounded the outer tents.
Still, the party didn't stop in its final st ... More >>
Sure, you could have been at the Fool's Gold party at Grand Central -- a decent enough choice. But you would have missed out on the next-level shit.
The Overthrow and Trouble & Bass' Black Magick party at the Overthrow Castle surely had a darker vibe than other festivities last night. But th ... More >>
via facebook.com/deathfacekillsOnce upon a time, Chicago-bred, L.A.-based DJ/producer Johnny Love was best known on underground dance floors as half of Guns and Bombs.
That project, as the name implies, was all about going hard and going big, full of searing chainsaw basslines and "subtlety" tu ... More >>
On her single "Youth Blood," Josefine Jinder confesses to possessing a "late-night thirst." But gratification has been anything but immediate for the self-described electronica girl who grew up listening to Art of Noise and Aphex Twin.
Her early recordings amounted to diffident mimicry, the voc ... More >>
By the spring of 2010, parties thrown by local creative collective the Overthrow were already legendary. The now-defunct Black Sundays series at Bella Rose became, possibly, the only weekly party on South Beach to regularly stage faux murders, scoring a few Best of Miami nods from New Times. Its ...

Whether bathrooms that double as drug dens or strippers doubling as backup dancers, this city is a cornucopia of vice. Still, when Overth ... More >>
