Additive-Free Fun

Champagne, strawberries, and beautiful people — No Sugar Added is the rare club night that provides a totally organic escape from the normally toxic South Beach scene. As mastermind Gianfranco Dossena says, it’s all about reuniting house music lovers with a fresh atmosphere. And, in fact, since launching in Miami this past March during WMC, the back-to-basics concept has proven so revitalizing that Dossena will take his clubland detox overseas for a fall European tour, with a layover in Dubai.

Don’t fret, though — you can still get your taste of the pure party experience this Thursday night at 11, when it hits LIV for a final homeland stand. Chart-killing producer and MTV Video Award winner DJ Ian Carey will be in the booth dropping heavy yet entirely untainted house beats. There will also be free strawberries and complimentary CD copies of the exclusive No Sugar Added mix — New Club Sound, by Nikola — for every single detoxer in attendance.
