Wild Turkey

Miami: a city of clubs, a premier dance music destination. Our crowds want only the best in established and up-and-coming house DJs from around the world. And what the Magic City wants, the Magic City gets. Turkish import Deniz Koyu, named an MTV EDM artist to watch in 2012, will make partiers throw their hands in the air under the ceiling of lights at LIV (4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach). This is one set the serious Miami clubgoer won’t want to miss. His song “Tung” is an instant crowd favorite, with a driving rhythm and persistent beat that grab hold of your body and won’t let go. Koyu specializes in progressive and electro house with a bit of disco flair, perfect for the late-night LIV revelers who want to dance till the wee hours and make it big. His tracks have received support from industry stalwarts such as Tiësto, Avicii, Fedde Le Grand, Swedish House Mafia, and Dada Life, who count themselves as Koyu fans and drop his tracks in their own live sets. The party kicks off Thursday at 11 p.m., and tickets cost $30 to $40. Call 305-674-4680 or visit livnightclub.com.
